Rockwell Collins Snags Embraer Award to Supply Pro Line Fusion System

Rockwell Collins has won an award from Brazilian-based aerospace company Embraer Defense and Security to provide its Pro Line Fusion flight deck for the KC-390 tanker/transport aircraft.

The Brazilian Air Force has committed to purchasing 28 KC-390 aircraft.

Dave Nieuwsma, vice president and general manager of Mobility and Rotary Wing Solutions for Rockwell Collins, called the award emblematic of the firm’s ability to leverage commercial avionics technology for military applications.

“With advanced technologies including the largest format displays available, enhanced graphic capabilities and available synthetic vision, our Pro Line Fusion flight deck will provide KC-390 pilots with the highest levels of situational awareness while reducing their workload to ensure mission success, ” he said.

LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and managing director, Americas, Rockwell Collins International & Service Solutions, said the award expands upon more than 35 years of serving the rapidly growing Brazilian military and civil aviation industry, “including the very strong relationship we’ve built with Embraer.”
