PARIS (June 2017) – In a transfer that will support airways change toward all-digital operations, Rockwell Collins has been chosen by Airbus for the flight operations and upkeep exchanger (FOMAX) plan on the Airbus A320 relatives of plane. The solution, which retains operators connected to their plane by deploying the infrastructure for protected wireless connectivity, represents Rockwell Collins’ to start with main fundamental articles on the A320.
“We’re getting another move toward reworking the present day plane and crew to be more digitally connected,” reported Steve Timm, vice president and general supervisor of Air Transportation Techniques. “Working together with Airbus, we’re holding crews greater knowledgeable when offering greater info assortment and improved analytics to generate operational performance and diminished upkeep.”
Rockwell Collins’ solution for FOMAX capabilities a compact connectivity device that collects plane upkeep and effectiveness info and routinely sends it to ground-dependent operations. The device also sends info routinely to the growing variety of mobile applications that are getting applied by flight crews, as properly as into performance applications such as weather conditions, flight setting up, logbooks, and upkeep prediction and effectiveness calculators, all of which carry new levels of productivity and benefit to airline operations.
The FOMAX solution builds on the present Rockwell Collins SSR-7000 Secure Server Router to also present the Wi-Fi network for protected crew connectivity on the plane as properly as the cellular and terminal Wi-Fi products. It also interfaces with all main SATCOM connectivity forms.
Delivering FOMAX as a section of the Airbus digital transformation initiative supports Rockwell Collins’ determination to providing the airborne products needed for a digitally connected plane.
