[Avionics Today 11-09-2015] Dubai-based flydubai has selected a suite of Rockwell Collins avionics, including the Head-up Guidance System (HGS), MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar, and datalink communications system for 11 Next-Generation Boeing 737 aircraft. Deliveries will take place during 2016 and 2017.

Rockwell Collins HGS-4000 system features manual guidance to touchdown allowing for Category III approach and landing down to 600 feet Runway Visual Range (RVR), low-visibility takeoff as low as 300 feet RVR, and lower-than-standard Category I approach minima as low as 1,400 feet. The HGS-4000 also has numerous safety features including specific symbology for tailstrike avoidance, TCAS alerts, as well as awareness and recovery from unusual attitude and windshear events.

MultiScan ThreatTrack is a commercial airborne radar offered by both Airbus and Boeing, which includes two-level turbulence detection and predictive overflight protection, while enabling inferred hail and lightning prediction.

The GPS Landing System receiver, GLU-925 MMR, enables high-integrity navigation, including Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required (RNP AR) Performance-Based Navigation (PBN), Category III Instrument Landing Systems (ILS) and Category I Global Positioning Landing System (GPLS) approaches. The MMR also enables GPS position and availability requirements for Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Out mandates.

Rockwell Collins is also providing a comprehensive communication and navigation suite as part of the avionics package for flydubai.
