[Avionics Today 09-08-2015] China’s Harbin Aircraft Industry Group (HAIG) has selected Rockwell Collins to provide avionics for Avicopter's new AC312E/C helicopters, which will perform search and rescue, emergency medical service, and general purpose transport missions.
Rockwell Collins' avionics consists of its latest helicopter cockpit display system and Pro Line 21 Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) equipment. The cockpit display system provides growth to support Synthetic Vision, Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (HTAWS) and Electronic Flight Bags (EFB). Options for the platform also include the RTA-4112 MultiScan weather radar and the TTR-4100 Traffic Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) II traffic surveillance system.
Initial delivery of the avionics suite to HAIG will occur in late 2015 to meet the first flight schedule. The Civil Aviation Administration of China is expected to certify the aircraft in 2017.
