Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion integrated avionics system received its final FAA Technical Standard Order (TSO), certifying the hardware and software. The company said the TSO sets the stage for Supplemental Type Certification (STC) on Rockwell Collins’ Challenger 601 test aircraft and certification on Bombardier’s Global Express XRS aircraft.

“Now that all the 50 hardware and software TSOs for Pro Line Fusion are approved, we’re focusing on the next major milestone — the STC of the full system on our test aircraft,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins. “We’re moving full speed ahead to achieve this certification in the coming days.”

The Pro Line Fusion system is in development for the following announced aircraft: Bombardier Global Express XRS/Bombardier Global 5000; Bombardier Learjet 85; Bombardier CSeries; Embraer Legacy 450/500; Gulfstream G250; and Mitsubishi Regional Jet.
