DUBAI (Nov. 16, 2021) – Collins Aerospace has been awarded an agreement by Emirates Airline to upgrade its fleet of 101 B777 and 107 A380 aircraft with the company's latest GLU-2100 multi-mode receiver (MMR). In addition, Collins is providing a full suite of avionics and satcom capabilities to Emirates’ 777X aircraft.

The agreement was signed today at a ceremony at the Dubai Air Show featuring Mr. Adel Ahmad Al Redha, chief operating officer for Emirates Airlines and Craig Bries, vice president, Avionics Sales, Marketing and Business Development for Collins Aerospace.

An MMR assists pilots in positioning, navigating and landing an aircraft. This supports the integrity of the aircraft position, accuracy and availability of demanding aircraft operations such as landing in low visibility conditions. Building on the segment-leading Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) capabilities of previous MMRs, the GLU-2100 now provides an industry-proven Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) and Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) at entry into service.

Collins Aerospace’s GLU-2100 also assists commercial aircraft in meeting flight zone global mandates, while also proofing the technology by providing a solid foundation for future growth. It includes the flexible hardware baseline necessary to implement future GNSS capabilities, such as multi-frequency and multi-constellation (MFMC), and GBAS Category II/III via software-only update.
