Gaining awareness

Honeywell signed a contract with Airbus to provide the Airborne Traffic Situational Awareness (ATSAW) system that will be certified and installed on Airbus’ A320 single-aisle and A330/A340 families of aircraft. ATSAW will increase safety by providing pilots with more information on surrounding air traffic and allow them to better plan for oceanic flight level changes to reduce fuel burn. Honeywell’s technology will be available for Airbus A320 and 340 new aircraft production as well as retrofit after certification. The contract is expected to generate up to $14 million over five years.
