OTTAWA, Ontario (May 31, 2018) – Rockwell Collins has been selected by CAE to provide its Panorama™ collimated display for the CC-295 full-flight simulator (FFS) that CAE will deliver in support of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) program. The Panorama display will be installed on the CAE-built CC-295 FFS, which is part of the comprehensive training program being established to prepare aircrews for their missions in the new Airbus Defence and Space CC-295 aircraft.

“This is a program that helps save the lives of thousands of Canadians each year, and working with CAE and Airbus on training will be a critical component for the RCAF’s success,” said Lee Obst, managing director, Rockwell Collins Canada. “The configuration flexibility and enhanced realism of the Panorama display will help better prepare pilots for the new platform.”

The Panorama display is designed for use on simulators requiring a wide field of view, cross-cockpit views and side-by-side training. It supports unobstructed fields of view up to and including 225 degrees horizontal by 60 degrees vertical, making it ideal for critical aircrew training on platforms like the P-8, NH90 helicopter, C-130 and CH-47 Chinook. Rockwell Collins is a leader in collimated displays, having fielded over 800 Panorama display systems to a variety of government and commercial customers for more than 25 years.
