China’s Xi’an Aviation Science and Technology Company (XASC) has awarded Rockwell Collins a contract to develop a simulation and training program for the Xi’an Aircraft (XAC) MA-60 and MA-600 regional turboprops. Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will use its CORE simulation architecture to supply key components of the MA-60 full-flight simulator and the MA-600 training device. The MA-60 simulator, scheduled for delivery in February 2010 and the MA-600 FTD, slated for delivery this September, will support training on the aircraft at XASC and XAC, respectively.
Rockwell Collins’s CORE simulation architecture features common reusable elements, including scalable software adaptable for multiple training devices, integrated tool sets and the company’s display and image-generation technology.

In fact, the CORE network comes as basic equipment on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, now in final preparation for first flight. Rockwell Collins serves as the systems integrator for the airplane’s flight deck display system and crew alerting system, pilot controls, communication and surveillance systems, the aircraft’s common data network and the CORE network cabinet.
