Cobham Selected by Embraer for EMB-312 Tucano Avionics Upgrades

Cobham has been chosen by Embraer to provide an advanced flight display system for 14 EMB-312 Tucanos being upgraded for the Columbian air force beginning in 2012. The highly integrated suite features large-format synthetic vision flight displays, advanced flight management capability, integrated hazard alerting, and integrated engine displays and master caution system. Growth options include a digital autopilot with 3-D autoflight capability and automatic stall/overspeed protection and simulated tactical radar training using virtual scenarios.

“This system will extend the life of Tucanos and provide operational capabilities that are currently unavailable in this class of aircraft,” said Roger Smith, general manager of Cobham Commercial Systems’ Mineral Wells facility.
