Rockwell Collins to supply touchscreens for Boeing 777x

In July, Boeing announced that the re-engined and re-winged 777X family would be the first airliner to have touchscreen flight displays for the pilots, and it has now been confirmed.

Rockwell Collins, who design and produce aviation electronics systems and products have been selected by Boeing to supply the touch screen flight displays for the Boeing 777x cockpit.

Kent Statler, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of Rockwell Collins said:

“We applaud Boeing for taking the bold step to embrace this next evolution in flight deck technology. A touch-controlled flight deck environment makes it easier for pilots to manage information and do their jobs, and speeds up the process to complete tasks.”

Rockwell Collins are Boeing’s display provider on all of its next-generation aircraft, including the 777X, 787 Dreamliner, 737 MAX and the 747-8.

Rockwell Collins confirmed that they will also be providing the integrated surveillance system with MultiScan™ weather radar, select flight controls, Avionics Gateway secure server router and optional dual Head-up Guidance System.
