Rockwell Collins Cockpit Display System receives EASA certification on AgustaWestland AW189


Marks first certification for HeliSure H-SVS and H-TAWS functions


Rockwell Collins Cockpit Display System receives EASA certification on AgustaWestland AW189


Rockwell Collins, February 25, 2014 - CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – The Rockwell Collins Cockpit Display System has successfully passed the European Aviation Safety Agency’s Civil Certification Audit onboard the AgustaWestland AW189 helicopter.

This critical milestone enables final EASA approval of the aircraft’s advanced cockpit, which includes the first two products of the HeliSure family – Helicopter Synthetic Vision System (H-SVS) and Helicopter Terrain Awareness and Warning System (H-TAWS) – to receive certification.

“One of our core capabilities is to provide advanced cockpit solutions that are certified up to the highest level of criticality,” said Claude Alber, vice president and managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa for Rockwell Collins. “Both HeliSure H-SVS and H-TAWS will greatly enhance pilot situational awareness while providing advanced warning about dangers along their flight path.”

Both HeliSure systems enable pilots to “see and avoid” even when they can’t see outside the aircraft, Alber added, and are integrated into the AW189 Cockpit Display System, which is composed of four 13.3-inch (33.8 cm) multifunction displays.

Alber said the certification has truly been a team effort, with the AgustaWestland and Rockwell Collins engineering, program management and certification teams playing an instrumental role in achieving the milestone by driving the overall systems activities, and liaising with the various teams in charge of the development and certification. Alber said the successful certification was also due to seamless collaboration between teams at Rockwell Collins facilities in Toulouse, France, and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The AW189 was launched by AgustaWestland in response to the growing market demand for a versatile, affordable, multirole medium helicopter. The new 8-ton class, twin engine helicopter is optimized for long range offshore transport and SAR missions and has already received orders for 130 helicopters, including options and framework contracts, making it the market leader in its class since its launch at Paris Air Show in June 2011.
