The next evolution of RAAS, SmartRunway® and SmartLanding®, is a software option for the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), that increases flight crew situational awareness during taxi, take-off and landing, promotes stabilized approaches, decreases the risk of runway incursions and excursions, supports heads-up operations with aural advisories and supports quiet cockpits with visual advisories.
One key feature of SmartRunway and SmartLanding is the addition of visual messaging to the capabilities of the already popular runway advisory and awareness system (RAAS), which allows installation flexibility, giving pilots timely information and a quieter cockpit environment.
SmartRunway® and SmartLanding® are available on the Primus 1000® and Primus® 2000 platforms. Simple and fast software updates to your EGPWS MK V, MKV-A, MK VII or Epic EGPWS Module (EGPWM) are available. Operators should contact Honeywell sales at the link below or an authorized Honeywell dealer to determine if a supplemental type certificate (STC) or service bulletin exists for a simple software upgrade.
