Interactive technology demonstration will bring Honeywell’s aviation products closer to customers
Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON) will showcase technologies at the Singapore Airshow 2014 from Feb. 11–16, 2014, at its booth Q-23 and chalet CS42 in the Changi Exhibition Center. Honeywell will display its T55 engine powering the Boeing CH-47 Chinook helicopter, the industry’s latest satellite connectivity solutions, business aviation cabin management systems, and an interactive display showcasing Honeywell’s Intelligent Airports offerings.
“Asia Pacific has been experiencing unprecedented growth in the commercial and business air travel space, and with that, airlines and passengers are forming a set of new priorities and demands,” said Briand Greer, president, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Aerospace.
“As an end-to-end solution supplier to the aerospace industry for the past 100 years, Honeywell is unique in being able to provide technologies and services that improve safety and efficiencies for airlines and address the evolving connectivity needs of passengers.”
Honeywell’s expertise in supporting commercial air transport and business aircraft manufacturers is demonstrated through key strategic supplier agreements with several commercial air transport and business aviation aircraft manufacturers. In 2013, Honeywell helped power the Airbus A350 Xtra Wide-Body aircraft in its maiden flight by supplying the new aircraft with a comprehensive package of products. Honeywell’s critical systems helped reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, the HGT1700 Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) led to a 10 percent reduction in specific APU fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions, and the flight management system ensured efficient next-generation-capable flight management.
In addition, Honeywell has been appointed as a supplier for the Boeing 787-9 that is set to take off in mid-2014. The 787 family is equipped with some of Honeywell’s most advanced avionics, flight control systems, flight management systems and lighting technology, all of which help the 787-9 achieve new levels of performance, efficiency and ease-of-use. For example, the flight control system incorporates the latest fly-by-wire technology, increasing comfort for passengers and ease-of-use for flight crews.
Within Asia Pacific, Honeywell is in close partnership with the COMAC C919 team to supply four systems to the airliner: the fly-by-wire flight control system, the wheels and brakes system, the auxiliary power system, and the air data/inertial reference system. In 2013, Honeywell extended its authorized avionics network with Gulfstream Beijing. The agreement allows Honeywell’s customers access to a Civil Aviation Administration of China-approved service center without the need to travel out of the region.
Honeywell products and services on display include the following:
Air Traffic Management-Interactive (ATM-I) wall: An interactive wall showcasing Honeywell’s air traffic management solutions will be present at the booth. One of the key products on display is the SmartLanding® system. Aimed at reducing the risk of runway excursions, the system is designed to provide timely alerts to crew members when an aircraft approaches the runway at irregular speeds or when the aircraft is not configured properly. This system is available for forward and retro-fit aircraft applications.
Connectivity solutions: Honeywell has a broad portfolio of satellite communication products and services that enable flight safety, crew and passenger productivity, and passenger entertainment. Honeywell’s latest program with Inmarsat, GX Aviation, will offer the fastest global, consistent, wireless connectivity coverage for airlines and passengers.
IntuVue® 3-D Weather Radar: Comprehensive features together with 3-D display and analysis tools provide pilots with critical and accurate information so they can make the most informed decisions when flying in extreme weather. This system is available as an upgrade to many existing weather radar-equipped aircraft.
KSN 770 Bendix/King: A panel-mounted GPS, NAV/COMM that offers a unique touchscreen interface to enhance safety and situational awareness through a comprehensive display of safety systems. Pilots are offered ease of control over GPS navigation, radio tuning, weather, traffic and terrain mapping in any condition.
Ovation Select: For business aviation aircraft, Honeywell’s Ovation Select cabin management system provides passengers with high-definition in-flight entertainment, productivity and business connectivity through a simple and intuitive touchscreen control.
T55 engine: The T55 engine delivers advanced performance for the CH-47 Chinook helicopter by producing 4,800 shaft horsepower, powering the helicopter to a maximum speed of 196 mph (170 knots). Technology upgrades to the engine continue to increase operational performance and engine durability.
