China's first home-grown large passenger aircraft, the C919, rolled off assembly lines in Shanghai on Nov 2. Wuxi people are proud that a Wuxi company is responsible for the aircraft's integrated surveillance system, reported the Wuxi Business Daily.

The surveillance system is essential to avionics, said Wang Guanglu, a director of AVIC Leihua Rockwell Collins Avionics Company.

It includes two collision warning systems and a meteorological observation, featuring high integration density, reliability and easy manipulation and maintenance.

The Wuxi company researched the system for five years. Only Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 are equipped with the advanced technology.

It was reported that hundreds of thousands of people from 36 universities and over 200 companies in 22 provinces took park in the C919 program.

The C919 will make its maiden flight in 2016, after adjustment of the airborne system and installation of testing equipment.

In 2012, the large US-based Rockwell Collins and China Leihua Electronic Technology Research Institute (LETRI), a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), established AVIC Leihua Rockwell Collins Avionics Company in Liyuan High-Tech Industrial Park, Wuxi, to bring the latest surveillance products to the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China.

In the wake of this program, Wuxi aviation enterprises will improve their technological levels.
