CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Iowa-based aviation electronic equipment manufacturer Rockwell Collins says it has reached an agreement with a St. Petersburg, Russia company to provide equipment for Russian aircraft.

The deal is with Transas Aviation to build equipment to retrofit into existing aircraft and for new machines.

Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will further expand its presence in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States with improved access to customers, engineering support and certification agencies.

Transas Aviation will gain access to Rockwell Collins' global business development capabilities, engineering and certification expertise, and its service and support network.

Rockwell Collins says the Russian and CIS aviation market segment is quickly emerging and the deal leverages the expertise of both companies.
