Constant Aviation Seeing High Demand for Pro Line Fusion® Flight Deck Upgrades for the Challenger 604

Reading time ( words)

Constant Aviation has installed the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion® flight deck in 25 Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft since launching the program in 2018. The MRO provider has many more installations scheduled this year and is on pace to install the in-demand avionics package in more than 35 604s by early 2021. This represents nearly 15 percent of the Challenger 604s in use across the United States.

“Avionics upgrades such as Pro Line Fusion are a key part of Constant Aviation’s core skill set and expertise,” said David Davies, Constant Aviation CEO. “The market demand for packages like Pro Line Fusion is high, and we have the experience and knowledge to complete these installations accurately and efficiently.”

The Pro Line Fusion upgrade replaces the Challenger 604’s factory-installed CRT displays with three widescreen, high-resolution touchscreens with synthetic vision technology. The widescreen displays provide 35 percent more glass than legacy systems for enhanced data presentation and exceptional situational awareness. The package includes Synthetic Vision, Data Link, ADS-B Out, WAAS/LVP, and the option to add Safe Flight AutoPower and FANS-1/A.

“Operators looking to maximize the investment in their aircraft are electing to upgrade to Pro Line Fusion,” said Blake Hogge, Director of Avionics Sales for Constant Aviation. “With one installation, their planes are NextGen compliant with unparalleled situational awareness and safety enhancements, and they are well-positioned to operate into the future. This provides peace of mind and improves the plane’s resale value.”

The Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap for Aerospace and Defense

11/24/2020 | Jeff Demmin, Keysight Technologies
Most people in the semiconductor industry are familiar with the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), which provided guidance for the industry starting in 1991 (as the National Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors). As the benefits of Moore’s Law became more difficult and more expensive to achieve, the organization decided to publish a final version in 2016. The baton was handed to the Heterogeneous Integration Roadmap (HIR), with the realization that heterogeneous integration—assembling different types of devices rather than monolithic fabrication—is an important enabler for continued progress in the semiconductor industry.
