Honeywell developed and patented the Primus® 2000 automatic dual flight control system to feature a fully integrated fail operational (automatic switching) design.
The Primus® 2000 combines flight director, autopilot and auto throttle with multiple sensor redundancy management in the IC-800 integrated avionics computer (IAC).
By using the Primus® 2000, both sides of the aircraft are available to IACs to provide monitoring and continuous operation, should the sensor fail, without pilot interaction.
The Primus® 2000 delivers:
- A Full three-axis
- A fail-passive operation
- Coupled go-around and flight path modes
- CAT II landing capability
- Windshear guidance
