Rockwell Collins’s Pro Line Fusion avionics system has been selected by Embraer Defense and Security for the Brazilian Air Force KC-390 military transport aircraft.

Rockwell Mobility and Rotary Wing Solutions vice-president and general manager Dave Nieuwsma said the integrated avionics system will provide advanced commercial avionics capability to meet military mission requirements.

“Pilots will benefit from the enhanced situational awareness and reduced workload to achieve mission success,” he added.

The Pro Line Fusion system is also fitted with an advanced man-machine interface, automatic reconfiguration capability, and high-capacity data exchange bus.

The flight test of the KC-390 with the new avionics is expected to begin in 2014 and the aircraft is expected to enter service with the Brazilian Air Force by the end of 2015.
