  • 14-Jan-2009 01:13 EST
Honeywell is providing the avionics subsystem for the new Constellation Space Suit System being developed by Oceaneering International Inc. Honeywell will design, develop, and integrate the advanced avionics for the Constellation Space Suit System as part of the Oceaneering team. The suit incorporates a see-through Near To Eye display powered by a projector the size of a quarter that displays data to the astronaut without diverting attention from the surrounding environment. The suit will also have Honeywell’s Organic LED cuff display. The new space suit system represents the first new suit design and development since the 1970s.
