Rockwell Collins today announced it has reached a major milestone in implementing a complete take-off-to-touchdown advanced information management solution as Cathay Pacific begins operational evaluation of the company’s eEnabled Aircraft Solution on three Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
“The solution we’re implementing for Cathay Pacific represents a broader trend in our industry as airlines look to fully harness the capabilities and applications that high-speed air-to-ground connectivity can provide,” said Jeff Standerski, senior vice president, Information Management Services for Rockwell Collins. “We commend Cathay Pacific for pioneering this effort, as it becomes the first airline in Asia to begin the implementation of an almost fleet-wide eEnabled solution, the most advanced of its kind.”
Working in collaboration with Cathay Pacific, Rockwell Collins is designing and supporting the implementation of a common aircraft network across Cathay Pacific’s fleet of B777, B747-400F, B747-8, and Airbus A330 aircraft as well as Dragonair’s A330 and A320/1 aircraft. The network will serve as a full-time global air-to-ground data communication and information management service, supporting both current and future high-speed connectivity. Rockwell Collins, with Cathay Pacific, has the only eEnabled fully integrated and regulation-compliant aircraft solution flying today.
Rockwell Collins’ ARINC eEnabled Aircraft Solution allows for secure information management of flight operations, data communication services, cabin services, maintenance, diagnostics and vital safety information throughout flight, enhancing operational efficiencies and reducing costs. It improves accuracy of fueling requirements, provides potential for increased payload, and allows for automatic upgrades of installed and portable electronic flight bags.
“Rockwell Collins’ ARINC eEnabled Aircraft Solution enables us to create a highly functional, seamless communications platform, allowing us to improve the speed, accuracy, deployment and presentation of information between the aircraft and ground infrastructure,” said Cathay Pacific’s Mark Hoey, General Manager Operations. “The ability to connect airborne systems to ground-based information technology systems in real time will result in improved operational efficiency and increased maintenance effectiveness, as well as provide a number of exciting service enhancements.”

WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications. As WebRTC has become more mainstream it has evolved to use cases beyond the original peer-to-peer case, which has led to a repeating requirement for interoperability with existing infrastructures. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...
