VINA DEL MAR, Chile (Nov. 29, 2016) Rockwell Collins Flight2 integrated avionics system has been selected by IMP Aerospace for the Chilean Navys cockpit modernization program for its P-3 Orion Maritime Patrol Aircraft.

Chilean Navy pilots will experience greater situational awareness and communications capabilities with the highly advanced avionics on board these aircraft, said Alan Prowse, vice president and managing director, Americas and Global Services Business Development for Rockwell Collins. This selection further solidifies our position as a key provider of P-3 cockpit modernization for military organizations around the world.

The Flight2 integrated avionics suite of communications, navigation and surveillance equipment seamlessly integrates new-generation avionics with legacy sensors, radios, autopilot and aircraft systems. Flight2 features advanced displays and an integrated military/civil flight management system, and is one of the most cost-effective, lowest-risk solutions available today. The system is currently flying on more than 900 fixed-wing aircraft.

Aircraft installation, integration and design work is being done within IMP's Halifax, Nova Scotia facilities in Canada. Rockwell Collins will provide dedicated in-country, on-site field service engineering and logistics support to IMP Aerospace during the aircraft modifications and test.
