GE Aviation provides advanced systems on the first flight of the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner
Grand Rapids, MI – March 31, 2017 - GE Aviation congratulates Boeing on today’s first flight of the 787-10. GE Aviation is a key supplier on the 787-10 including the common core system and enhanced airborne flight recorder.
“Boeing has redefined air travel with the 787 Dreamliner. The 787-10 first flight is another historic milestone,” said Alan Caslavka, president of Avionics for GE Aviation. “Our employees should feel proud to have our systems on-board every 787 flying.”
The common core system (CCS) provides the primary computing environment for the 787. The system has three major elements: processing for the avionics and utilities applications software; remote data concentrators, which reduce the wiring in the aircraft considerably through local connections to sensors and other digital gateways throughout the aircraft; and the core data network, which connects the CCS with other aircraft systems. The CCS is designed, manufactured and tested at GE Aviation facilities in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and Cheltenham, UK.
