GE Aviation is supplying the data concentration network, advanced power management system and health management system for the recently unveiled Gulfstream G400 and Gulfstream G800 business jets.
“We are excited to continue our technology collaboration with Gulfstream for the G400 and G800 aircraft. Gulfstream is a leader in business jets, and this proven technology has been a differentiator for the Gulfstream G500 and Gulfstream G600. We’re working with Gulfstream to continue this leadership in the marketplace,” said Brad Mottier, president of Systems for GE Aviation.
The data concentration network for the G400 and G800 is common from the G500 and G600 and builds on GE’s common core system from the Boeing 787. The system provides a highly configurable integrated data network for the aircraft and offers a way to seamlessly connect avionics and manage aircraft functions. Using GE’s tool suite, the data concentration network can be rapidly re-configured, enabling efficient integration and significantly reducing cost of change over the life of the airplane.
