Jeppesen signs agreement with Rockwell Collins at Oshkosh
Companies sign agreement for wireless electronic charts transfer.
Jeppesen has entered into an agreement with Rockwell Collins to automatically and securely transfer electronic charts via Wi-Fi and cellular networks using Rockwell Collins’ Ascend Aircraft Information Manager (AIM).
Operators will now be able to leverage Rockwell Collins AIM technology to streamline access to Jeppesen flight data, provided through an enhanced direct connection to the flight deck of the aircraft.
“This agreement with Jeppesen takes yet another step out of the data loading and update process,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, Flight Information Solutions, Cabin and Electromechanical Systems for Rockwell Collins. “Operators can be assured that their JeppView content, such as electronic terminal charts, will automatically be available when they need them.”
Rockwell Collins’ AIM will ensure that Pro Line Fusion and Pro Line 21 equipped aircraft are always flying with the latest data. These aircraft can wirelessly receive Jeppesen electronic charts, Flight Management System (FMS) navigation, performance and V-speed databases and checklist files.
“Expanding our relationship with Rockwell Collins using AIM technology provides a direct data connection to the aircraft and enhances the customer experience,” said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management.
“We will continue to further streamline and improve the management of information to and from the aircraft, leveraging the core strengths of both Jeppesen and Rockwell Collins to enhance data integration using AIM technology,” Reagan concluded.
