Honeywell has a full complement of highly reliable, technically advanced solutions for marine applications including ring laser gyro-based navigation products, condition-based maintenance, the latest actuation technologies and mechanical components.
Honeywell’s depth of experience and global presence in marine markets gives you the edge that comes with more intelligent systems.
Honeywell’s technologies address both naval and commercial vessels:
- Surface warships (aircraft carriers, frigates, corvettes, destroyers, cruisers, amphibious warships, patrol boats)
- Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV)
- Merchant ships (bulk carriers, oil tankers, containers, liquid petroleum gas (LPG)/liquid natural gas (LNG) carrier, roll-on/roll-off (Ro Ro) ships
- Oil and gas (drill ships, semi-submersibles, floating production storage and offloading (FPSO)
- Subsea construction and survey ships (pipe/cable laying ships)
Navigation and Sensors
Honeywell's marine navigation portfolio includes LASEREF® and TALIN® subsystems as well as subcomponents such as ring laser gyros, accelerometers, and navigation-grade inertial measurement units.

For more information on TALIN, see TALIN Marine Inertial Navigation System (MINS)
As shipboard systems become increasingly complex, requiring longer repair times and higher technician skill levels, maintenance or repairs in port or at sea place a burden on your resources, especially with unique problems that are hard to troubleshoot. Furthermore, operational and maintenance data are often underutilized and may not even be actionable.
Honeywell has responded by developing condition-based maintenance (CBM) tools that provide the real-time performance diagnostic and prognostic information you need for optimum performance, thereby increasing both onboard safety and reliability while reducing costs.
Our toolkit includes a rapid low-cost software deployment process for trending, analytics and prognostics; intelligent data collection; and knowledge management. Early detection of faults combined with actionable intelligence reduces troubleshooting time and improves operational availability.

An actuator is a type of motor that is responsible for moving or controlling a mechanism or system, typically operated by electric current, hydraulic fluid pressure or pneumatic pressure. Reliable steering controls are critical to precision directional control in tactical missiles and guided munitions.
The new generation of marine vessels relies on high-power electric actuation to critical shipboard functions in lieu of expensive, leaky, traditional hydraulics for valve control and munitions handling.
Honeywell offers a diverse suite of actuators delivering precision load management and motion control solutions for marine applications.

Honeywell provides a wide variety of mechanical components for the marine market from advanced waterjet technology for marine propulsion to torpedo ejection pumps and firefighting systems for surface ships.
Honeywell's Waterjet Propulsion system—originating from a U.S. Marine Corps’ challenge with an under-performing engine for the Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)—offers high performance from a lightweight, compact, cost-effective design for amphibious ships and fast patrol boats.
The MK19 Air Turbine Pump provides highly efficient torpedo ejection for submarines.
Honeywell's Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is a highly reliable, effective firefighting foam delivery system for use on warships. Designed to survive severe shock, the system offers maximum corrosion protection in marine environments.
In addition, Honeywell offers a wide range of mission-critical fuel controls, air turbine starters, valves, heat exchangers, torque motors, valve solenoids and electro-hydraulic servo valves (EHSV).
