LASEREF IV replaces earlier versions that are no longer supported

The LASEREF IV inertial reference system replaces the existing LASEREF I, II and III systems, which are no longer supported through Honeywell.

The latest system offers the lowest cost of ownership with the highest reliability and improved maintenance.”

“VSE understands the criticality of inertial reference technology to business aviation,” said Pedro Gonzalez, vice president and general manager, Distribution, VSE Aviation. “We’re excited to continue supporting operators who benefit from higher reliability, reduced weight and lower cost of ownership with Honeywell’s LASEREF IV.”

The upgrade is available for the following aircraft models: Bombardier Global Express, Global 5000, Cessna Citation X, Challenger 600, 601, 601-3A, 601-3R, Dassault Falcon 900, 900EX, 900C, 2000, 2000EX, Gulfstream GIV, GIV-SP, GV, Falcon 50EX, and Hawker 800A/B, 1000 and 800XP.
