Honeywell received an order via Foreign Military Sales for six T-Hawk micro air vehicle (MAV) systems from the U.S. Navy, which is the contracting agency for the U.K. Ministry of Defence (MOD) for the T-Hawk MAV system procurement. The circular vehicle, with a mass of 17 lb and a 14-in diameter, can fly down to inspect hazardous areas for threats without exposing warfighters to enemy fire. The T-Hawk MAV has the ability to takeoff and land vertically and can fly more than 40 min. In addition to the six T-Hawk MAV units, the MOD will receive training, field support, maintenance, and spare parts. The systems will be delivered to the MOD in 2009.
