Rockwell Collins today released its latest ebook, Harnessing the Power of Aviation’s Information Age, in conjunction with the Paris Air Show, which took place June 15-21.
The new ebook addresses the future opportunities that exist in flight deck systems, in-flight entertainment and connectivity solutions (IFEC), networks, airport operations and the global airspace, and is authored by industry experts from Rockwell Collins.
Jeff Standerski, senior vice president of information management services, and Kent Statler, executive vice president and chief operating officer, commercial systems, for Rockwell Collins, state in the introduction, “The aviation industry is in the midst of a new information age. By 2030, the number of active air transport and business aircraft is expected to have grown to nearly 85,000 – with 80 percent of those equipped with new information-enabled systems.
“Beyond the aircraft, cutting-edge innovations are creating faster and more secure air and ground networks and more streamlined airline and airport operations. These developments are making a seamless, secure and integrated aviation ecosphere a reality.”
Topic addressed in the e-book include: networks – four principles for tomorrow’s information flow; flight deck – new phase in information management for flight crews; cabin – engaging and empowering passengers beyond IFEC; airports – the airport of tomorrow; and airspace – using information to move from control to management.
