[Avionics Today 08-30-2016] Rockwell Collins has been licensed to sell satellite services in Brazil, providing business, commercial and government aviation customers with access to new services from the company. Anatel, Brazil’s telecommunications agency, authorized the global license, giving Rockwell Collins the ability to sign distribution and service agreements with any satellite entities and customers operating in the country. Rockwell Collins is a value-added reseller for Inmarsat and Iridium satellite services.

Additionally, Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion avionics upgrade solution for King Air 350 turboprops equipped with Pro Line II has received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) validation from Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC). The FAA certified the same upgrade earlier this year. Rockwell Collins’ Pro Line Fusion upgrade for King Air 350 turboprops provides compliance with airspace modernization deadlines such as Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and transforms the flying experience with the largest widescreen primary flight displays available. The upgrade enhances the aircraft’s value with the same icon-based, touchscreen technology found on new-production King Airs.
