Productivity is a major concern for most aviation companies as they strive to save time and money to maximize profits. As technology advances, it will make available an increasing number of tools to help personnel do more with less. For more than 100 years, Honeywell has been on the vanguard of change, helping aviation industry discover innovative ways to work more efficiently while making flights safer and more practical.
Here's how Honeywell products can help improve efficiency, boost productivity while reducing time, effort and cost:
Honeywell Forge Connected Maintenance – a nose-to-tail solution that analyzes aircraft data and delivers diagnostics as well as predictive and prescriptive alerts. Showing trends is only one of the things it does; it also gives specific alerts about impending failures and advises you on the best way to fix them.
Proven benefits include:
- 35% Reduction in operational disruptions
- 1.5% No fault-found rate
- 100% Existing data without costly retrofitting
- 10-15% Reduction in premature removals.
ADS-B provides a substantial increase in the number of flights the ATC system can accommodate. This helps ATC understand the actual separation between airplanes
and enables controllers to avoid inefficient vectoring commands to maintain separation assurance.
With the increased precision of ADS-B, airlines can reduce cost per passenger kilometer by flying more direct routes at more efficient altitudes and speeds with uninterrupted climbs and descents.
Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver (IMMR) is a comprehensive and fully-digital navigation receiver that eliminates the need for standalone receivers, thereby cutting costs through reduced procurement and sparing, and enabling more efficient navigation capabilities. This further helps reduce aircraft weight and overall cost of ownership.
By using GPS satellites to pinpoint aircraft locations, the IMMR enables pilots to tackle challenging approaches with extreme accuracy, while airports and operators experience reduced delays and costs as well as greater efficiency.
IntuVue® RDR-4000 is the first 3D weather radar to offer predictive hail, lightning and wind-shear detection and alerting for aircraft with smaller antennas. Furthermore, it reduces hazardous weather false alarms by 15%* which leads to more effective rerouting decisions.
Using only 3 Modular Concept Units (MCUs), Honeywell’s highly compact radar system provides up to a 30% weight reduction* yielding $10,000 per year per aircraft in savings*.
IntuVue reduces maintenance costs by eliminating waveguide runs and switches. Additionally, advanced radar processor and antenna drive components increase system reliability, which can directly decrease operating expenses by at least 30%*.
Aircraft Data Gateway (ADG-300) enables airlines to reap the benefits of an affordable and flexible approach to wireless data transfer. Designed to replace legacy airborne and portable data-loaders on aircraft, the ADG-300 unit transfers multiple sources of data between aircraft and ground servers in real time.
Using ADG-300, airlines can see a full view and status of their fleet, manage all the data for their aircraft with estimated time savings of up to 50% realized by remote database loading, along with reducing costs and improving operations.
Honeywell Forge Ground Handling service helps airlines manage the ground handling process effectively and efficiently by providing accurate, real-time information to operations on the status of each tail and the likelihood of it pushing back on time.
The result is an unprecedented view of the turnaround process and a wealth of data for
improving on-time performance, resource planning and utilization, and invoicing accuracy.
Fast, efficient turnarounds are the lifeblood of air transportation and a critical key to better
operational and financial performance.
