Rockwell Collins to Bring Latest Avionics for KC-46 Tanker

As a supplier to Boeing on the KC-46 Tanker, Rockwell Collins will provide a wide range of the most advanced technologies for the warfighter. A recently signed contract with Boeing calls for Rockwell Collins to provide the flight deck, aircraft networks, surveillance/air traffic management equipment, communications and navigation gear, as well as the advanced situational awareness and vision systems required for aerial refueling. The flight deck will utilize the same technology that Rockwell Collins is supplying for Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner jet.

“Rockwell Collins’ unique ability to leverage our flight deck technology across our commercial and military businesses ensures that the most advanced capabilities are provided for U.S. Air Force pilots, resulting in greater situational awareness and mission effectiveness,” says Kelly Ortberg, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Rockwell Collins Government Systems.
