Rockwell Collins introduces ARINC vMUSE™ mobile, the industry's first mobile common-use passenger processing solution.

Wednesday 11th March 2015

Rockwell Collins today unveiled ARINC vMUSE™ mobile, the first entirely mobile common-use passenger processing (CUPPS) compliant solution for the aviation industry.

ARINC vMUSE mobile enables airline and ground handling agents to utilize a tablet-based application to checkin passengers from anywhere in an airport when traditional CUPPS systems are not enough. The system is being demonstrated in stand 4045 at this week's Passenger Terminal Expo 2015.

ARINC vMUSE mobile enhances an airport's existing common-use infrastructure, reducing queues resulting from irregular operations or spikes in passenger traffic by enabling airlines to launch passenger check-in service in minutes, wherever there is an internet connection.

"Weather, maintenance and other factors that can cause flight delays or cancellations wreak havoc with an airport's schedule and are a major source of frustration for passengers," said 
Christopher Forrest, vice president, Global Airports for Rockwell Collins. "When irregular operations occur, ARINC vMUSE mobile allows agents to go anywhere in the terminal to process passengers quickly and cost effectively."

ARINC vMUSE mobile allows each airline to access its own check-in application no matter where they are in the airport. Using a tablet PC and peripherals housed in a secure protective casing, ARINC vMUSE mobile provides the same security and reliability of the company's traditional IATA-compliant CUPPS, but does not require any installation time, software configuration, telecommunications lines or added technical resources.

"ARINC vMUSE mobile fills a need for airports, enabling them to take a full CUPPS where traditional systems are unable to go," said Forrest. "Beyond the airport, ARINC vMUSE mobile opens up a number of unique passenger processing opportunities that include off-airport check-in, processing for start-up operations and onboard passenger processing."
