Rockwell Collins’ Latest Cabin Innovations to Debut on Dassault’s FalconCabin HD+ System


– New Skybox cabin solution and Airshow app for iPad® available for Falcon 7X, 900LX and 2000LX aircraft

Orlando, FL | October 29, 2012– Dassault’s Falcon 7X, 900LX and 2000LX passengers will be the first to experience the latest cabin innovations from Rockwell Collins on the FalconCabin HD+ cabin management system, which leverages technology from Rockwell Collins’ Venue.

The new optional features include Skybox, an airworthy cabin solution, unveiled by Rockwell Collins at the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) convention, that allows passengers to wirelessly share Hollywood-protected content to and from iPads. FalconCabin HD+ also features Rockwell Collins’ recently announced Airshow app for the iPad® as an option.

“The FalconCabin HD+ system is rich with new technology that elevates the passenger experience to a new level of engagement,” said Dave Austin, vice president and general manager, Cabin Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The addition of Skybox brings the latest in the digital home entertainment experience into the aircraft cabin.”

Rockwell Collins’ Airshow moving map solution for FalconCabin HD+ delivers a new dynamic experience, which includes an interactive 3D moving map for in-seat video and bulkhead monitors and the new Airshow app for the iPad. The app provides an unprecedented way for passengers to monitor and track their flight progress, including a panoramic view that displays a moving map any direction the iPad is pointed − as if the aircraft were transparent.

The FalconCabin HD+ cabin system, designed jointly by Rockwell Collins and Dassault Falcon Jet, utilizes a state-of-the-art fiber optic network to distribute crisp high-definition audio and video content using a family of intuitive, user-friendly touch-screen monitors. The new cabin system gives passengers total control of everything in the cabin in one easy-to-use solution.

Initial deliveries of new Falcon 7X, 900LX aircraft equipped with the new FalconCabin HD+ are expected later this year. Deliveries on the Falcon 2000LX will start in mid-2013.
