FARNBOROUGH, England, 11 July 2016. Rockwell Collins experts will be demonstrating the unique F-35 military pilot helmet, which will also be used in the flying display at Farnborough International Airshow. In addition to the helmet, the company’s cockpit and cabin electronics solutions are featured and flying on several next-generation commercial and military aircraft at the biennial industry event.

The company’s large-format, high-resolution displays enable a pilot to customize the information they want and need for flight. Cursor control devices and touchscreen technology on primary flight displays featured on these aircraft are signs that pilot interaction with the avionics continues to mirror the consumer world.

Rockwell Collins’ Head-Up Guidance and Helmet Mounted Display Systems place critical flight information on displays directly in front of pilots’ eyes—either on a glass mounted to the windshield or even on the glass of a fighter pilot’s helmet.

In addition to new displays in the cockpit, new information-rich offerings from the company can be found running behind the scenes, from on-board and air-to-ground communication networks to new inflight entertainment and connectivity offerings that keep passengers safe, connected, and informed.
