Chile-based LAN Airlines recently selected a full suite of Rockwell Collins avionics, including its WXR-2100 MultiScan Threat Detection System and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR), for 80 Airbus A320s. Deliveries will begin later this year and continue through 2016.
“This strategic win for Rockwell Collins takes on even greater importance due to its location in Latin America, one of the world’s fastest growing and emerging markets,” said Thierry Tosi, vice president and managing director of Americas for Rockwell Collins. “The wide range of weather conditions and rugged terrain in the region demands the capabilities of our MultiScan and MMR.
Other systems selected include TPR-901 Mode S Transponder; TTR-921 (TCAS II); DME-900 Distance Measuring Equipment; VOR-900 VHF Omnidirectional Radio; VHF-2100 Very High Frequency Transceiver; HFS-900D High Speed Data Radio; LRA-2100 Low-range Radio Altimeter; and CPL-921D High Speed Digital Antenna Coupler.
