Honeywell, U.S. Army Complete First Flight of Next-Generation Navigation Solution

Honeywell, U.S. Army Complete First Flight of Next-Generation Navigation Solution

  • Honeywell’s EAGLE-M Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System ready to be delivered in 2023

PHOENIX, Jan. 09, 2023 – Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) today announced that the U.S. Army has completed the first flight of Honeywell’s Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (EGI) equipped with M-Code for the US Army’s EAGLE-M program. Honeywell is ready to deliver these qualified units featuring next-generation M-code GPS in 2023 to the U.S Army and other customers.

In collaboration with Honeywell, the Army conducted successful testing of the M-Code-enabled EGI units on the MQ-1C Gray Eagle Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), which validated its airworthiness to be deployed on military aircraft. M-Code is more resilient than the current generations of global positioning systems (GPS). This next-generation navigation solution enhances the resiliency of the GPS navigation solution to enemy actions. The U.S Army will begin migrating its MQ-1C Gray Eagle Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) fleet to Honeywell EGIs in early 2023.

“The demands of conventional aerial warfare have changed significantly in recent years. To gain air supremacy, you need the most advanced technological equipment available today,” said Ricky Freeman, president, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. “Over the next several years, all military aircraft will need EGI equipment capable of receiving M-Code signals as the current technology is being phased out. We are confident that our next-generation M-Code-enabled EGI units will meet the high expectations of the U.S. Army, the DoD and international partner nations that have been waiting to upgrade their GPS anti-jamming capabilities for more than a decade.”

Honeywell is a leader in EGI technologies for military applications with more systems deployed worldwide than any other supplier. In fact, Honeywell has provided more than 45,000 EGI units for leading fighter, transport, vertical takeoff and landing, and rotary-wing aircraft — more than 70 aircraft types to more than 30 countries. To date, Honeywell has delivered over 300 EGIs with M-code to various customers.
