Boeing 737 Hardened
Cockpit Security System
This system was an early and technically successful contribution to the post-9/11 Safety-in-the-Skies airline program. In fact, it was in development two years before 9/11.
Lead customers Alaska Airlines and American Trans Air have been and continue to be pleased with the overall safety and positive passenger reaction to the cockpit doors flying on their 737s since October 2001.
In March 2002, when Boeing firmed up a program to complete the retrofit of its 737 fleet, Raisbeck relinquished its orders and inquiries on the industry’s airline flight deck security business for the Boeing 737 and other models, to Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The Raisbeck 737 Hardened Cockpit Security System includes bulkheads, lavatories, galleys, and hallways as applicable, to make the entire cockpit impervious to bullets and other weapons, and impenetrable by anyone who has not been identified and allowed to enter by the express remote-control action of the pilot or copilot. In addition, the Raisbeck System meets all applicable current and proposed FAA regulations.
