We’re applying our technologies in autonomous flight, avionics, hybrid-electric and electric propulsion, detect-and-avoid, actuation, logistics and connectivity to the unique needs of Urban Air Mobility vehicles.
We’re investing in new capabilities and scaling proven systems to meet UAM size, weight, power and cost requirements.
Our full-time UAM team is working with aircraft manufacturers, governments, universities, and newcomers from the tech and transportation worlds to advance the science of flight.
Our huge portfolio of aerospace products means we can get your vehicle flying fast.
And with 100 years of aircraft certification experience, we help you navigate the regulations as well.
No one knows more about autonomous flight, fly-by-wire, avionics, navigation, situational awareness or connectivity than Honeywell. You’ll find our electronics on aircraft from Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier, Dassault, Gulfstream, Pilatus, Textron and many other manufacturers.
We pioneered collision avoidance and ground proximity warning technologies that dramatically improve flight safety. Now we’re applying our expertise to detect-and-avoid technologies that will be critical for UAM operations.
We’ve built more small gas turbine engines than anyone – more than 160,000 in the 600-1,700 shaft horsepower range – and have been working in electric and hybrid-electric propulsion for more than two decades.
We excel in generators, motors, controllers and other essential elements in the electric and hybrid-electric powertrain. And we just introduced the aerospace industry’s first 1 MW generator (above), with the same power density as our 200 kVA generator.
Data communications are key to safe and efficient UAM flight. Honeywell is known throughout the industry for systems that bring Internet and other datalinks to airliners, business jets and helicopters.
But our expertise goes beyond that: we also provide advanced analytics, connected weather, connected flight management and prescriptive maintenance to improve the flying experience for passengers and operators.
We’re now working on applications specific to urban air mobility.
The aircraft certification process can be intimidating. With Honeywell as a development partner, UAM builders can breathe easier thanks to our certification experience with new applications, products and aircraft programs. We also lead the transportation industry in enabling aircraft systems to work together.
Our Urban Air Mobility team works full-time to ensure our customers are getting the solutions they need – fast. With a century of experience on our resume and a culture that thrives on growth and innovation, we’re looking for more opportunities to apply our leading-edge technologies on new UAM platforms.
It follows every advance in aviation, from the boom in early airliners to the frenzy over very light jets in the 1990s: a gradual retrenchment as the best-prepared companies pull ahead of the pack.Learn More
