RAA 2011: Rockwell Collins adds PBN capabilities to FMS-4200 on CRJ NextGens

Rockwell Collins has announced that its FMS-4200 Flight Management System, which is certified and standard fit on Bombardier CRJ700/900/1000 NextGen aircraft, will now be able to automatically fly Performance-Based Navigation (PBN) procedures, including Required Navigation Performance (RNP) and RF (radius to fix) legs − a first for CRJ aircraft.

Additional enhancements to the FMS-4200 for the NextGen family include: LPV approach capability; WAAS lateral navigation guidance and messaging; enabling of coupled VNAV; full NAV to NAV transitions; multiple approach indication (XYZ approaches); step down fixes; and temperature compensated barometric altitudes for use with VNAV operations

The FMS-4200 is an integral component embedded within the Pro Line 4 avionics system for in-service and current production CRJs.
