An impressive partnership of aviation behemoths has produced the Aviation X Lab, which is drawing droves of visitors at the Dubai Airshow.
Collins Aerospace, Emirates Airlines, Airbus, GE and Thales are showcasing the X Lab, which is designed to enhance the air travel experience, innovate and create the next era of aviation through a sustained programme of funding and collaboration.
Aviation X Lab works in cycles of 12 months with five key active phases: launching challenges; sourcing start-ups and corporates globally; validating concepts; conducting rapid feasibility; and sourcing funding.
Aviation X Lab will identify, support, fund and make the next set of big ideas in the transportation space accessible globally, with a vision to positively impact the lives of people.
Collins Aerospace is currently making its Dubai Airshow debut with a display of solutions designed to enable a more intelligent, more connected and more electric aerospace industry for its customers in the Middle East.
Spearheading its commercial exhibition is its Pro Line Fusion avionics, Venue cabin management system, Stage on-demand content delivery system, Airshow moving maps, IntelliSight electronic flight folder and an interactive aircraft highlighting the full breadth of Collins’ systems.
Collins Aerospace was created in 2018 through the combination of Rockwell Collins and UTC Aerospace Systems.
