Rockwell Collins launches HD IFE upgrades for Gulfstreams


May 19, 2016 – Rockwell Collins has introduced a series of high-definition (HD) cabin management and entertainment system upgrades for Gulfstream aircraft originally delivered with ACMS and Micronet systems. These upgrade options provide operators with a range of solutions for converting their cabins to HD to address obsolescence of the original equipment.

Depending on which system is upgraded, Rockwell Collins offers packages that range from a simple refresh of the base systems for cabin control, to a more robust package that includes its Venue HD system, which is designed to emulate the latest in home entertainment and boardroom technology.

“The opportunity to upgrade cabins to match the home entertainment or office experience that Venue delivers is exciting for Gulfstream aircraft owners, but budgets can sometimes limit what they can do,” said Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, flight controls and information systems for Rockwell Collins. “Now, with a range of upgrade options, even budget-conscious owners can modernize their cabins and set the stage for more upgrades in the future.”

Irmen added that major maintenance inspections provide the perfect opportunity to update cabins and many Gulfstream aircraft with ACMS and Micronet are due for inspection in the next few years. He went on to emphasize that ACMS and Micronet systems will both be obsolete in the near future.
