(Reuters) – Rockwell Collins Inc, maker of a key communications system for jets, is interested in joining a task force on improving global airline tracking to prevent further disappearances of planes like Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, its chief executive said on Thursday. Chief Executive Officer Kelly Ortberg said the avionics supplier had “a lot of value to add” to the task force planned by the International Air Transport Association that will look at ways to track airplanes and make recommendations. The Malaysia Airlines flight disappeared from radar screens on March 8 with 239 people on board. Last year, Rockwell acquired ARINC, a provider of aviation connectivity services including flight planning and high-speed data.
