tGoAir has announced that its 72 Airbus A320neo aircraft, which are due to be delivered from late 2016 onwards, will be equipped with Rockwell Collins’ MultiScan ThreatTrack weather radar and GLU-925 Multi-Mode Receiver (MMR).tt“The advanced, reliable avionics systems selected by GoAir will translate into safe, smooth rides for passengers,” commented Jim Walker, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Rockwell Collins. “In addition, these flight deck technologies are especially important in regions without robust ground-based navigation or weather radar networks.”ttMultiScan ThreatTrack provides Predictive Overflight Protection, which alerts pilots to significant threats adjacent to or above a thunderstorm cell as well as within it. With two levels of turbulence detection—severe and ride quality—MultiScan ThreatTrack can also measures growth rate and predict bow-wave turbulence.ttRockwell Collins’ GLU-925 MMR enables high-integrity navigation, including RNP AR, Category III ILS and Category I Global Positioning Landing System approaches. The MMR also enables GPS position and availability requirements for ADS-B Out mandates.ttIn addition to ThreatTrack and MMR, GoAir also plans to install Rockwell Collins’ ADF-900 Automatic Direction Finder, DME-2100 Distance Measuring Equipment, VHF-2100 Transceiver, HFS-900D Radio, and VOR-900 Omnidirectional Radio on its Airbus A320neo fleet.
