Honeywell helps out

  • 30-Jun-2008 08:56 EDT

Honeywell has been selected to provide the flight management system and the aircraft environment surveillance system (AESS) for Airbus’ new long-range, wide-body A350XWB aircraft. The contract is expected to generate more than $1.5 billion (including aftermarket) in revenue for Honeywell over the life of the program. The AESS combines the traffic alert collision avoidance system, Mode S transponders, enhanced ground proximity warning system, and advanced 3-D volumetric weather radar (RDR-4000) into a single unit, offering pilots increased situational awareness to reduce workload and maximize route and fuel efficiency. Honeywell has also been chosen to supply the latest generation of its HTF7000 turbofan propulsion system family for Embraer’s new MSJ and MLJ business aircraft. The contract is valued at more than $23 billion including aftermarket over the life of the agreement.
