CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa--()--Rockwell Collins has completed the acquisition of the Matrix series projector product lines from Christie Digital Systems (“Christie®”). The transaction, first announced on January 26, will give military and aviation customers a more comprehensive partner for all their current and future simulation and training projector needs.

“The acquisition of the Matrix series product line significantly enhances our industry leading offerings for military and aviation simulation and training while giving customers one place to go for a broad range of projector solutions,” said LeAnn Ridgeway, vice president and general manager, Simulation and Training Solutions for Rockwell Collins.
