Honeywell to Feature Virtual Reality at AUSA 2015

September 2, 2015

Honeywell Aerospace is going virtual at the 2015 Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting and Exhibition. Visitors to our display booth on the exhibition floor will be able to experience the full range of Honeywell systems for the Army using an engaging virtual reality application. 

AUSA 2015 visitors can try the virtual reality experience at Hall A – Booth 1831 throughout the meeting. This marks the first time Honeywell has used its virtual reality app at a defense and space industry event. The specially designed app shows the many ways Honeywell technology helps the Army gain significant operational efficiencies with solutions that reduce energy consumption, increase the productivity and lifespan of critical assets, improve human and asset safety and manage maintenance costs.

“We’re extremely proud of the technology contributions that Honeywell makes to strengthen the armed forces’ capabilities and help the U.S. Army achieve its global missions,” said Carey Smith, President of Defense & Space for Honeywell Aerospace. “AUSA is the premier annual gathering of Army decision-makers. We look forward to telling the Honeywell story and showcasing our current programs and future plans at the meeting.” 

With the virtual reality application, Honeywell booth visitors will be able to experience the full range of our technologies, products and services. Featured are propulsion systems including the HPW3000 engine, designed for the Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP) to modernize Black Hawk and Apache helicopters. Also featured are satellite communications technologies and safety systems like the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) and weather radar, and Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS). Dozens of other Honeywell Aerospace products and services also are featured. 

The AUSA Annual Meeting is the largest land power exposition and professional development forum in North America. This event consists of informative presentations, panel discussions on pertinent military and national security subjects, workshops and business meetings. 

More than 26,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2015 meeting, Oct. 12-14 in Washington, D.C. “Win in a Complex World” is the theme of this year’s event.
