Rockwell Collins has introduced a series of HD cabin management and entertainment system upgrades for Gulfstream aircraft originally delivered with ACMS and Micronet systems. The solutions are available through Gulfstream service centers or Rockwell Collins-authorized dealers.
Depending on which system is upgraded, Rockwell Collins offers packages that range from a simple refresh of the base systems for cabin control to a more robust package that includes its Venue HD system.
Venue has been installed on more than 850 private and corporate aircraft, and has an open architecture, designed to provide a path to easily implement future cabin technologies. “Upgrading cabins to match the home entertainment or office experience that Venue delivers weighs heavy on the minds of legacy Gulfstream aircraft owners, but budgets can sometimes limit what they can do,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, flight controls and information systems, Rockwell Collins. “Now, with a series of upgrade options, even budget-conscious owners can modernize their cabins and set the building blocks for more upgrades in the future.”
Irmen added that major maintenance inspections provide the perfect opportunity to update cabins and many legacy Gulfstream aircraft with ACMS and Micronet are due for inspection in the next few years.
