Aircraft Environmental Surveillance System (AESS)

The aircraft environmental surveillance system (AESS) optimizes performance by integrating weather, traffic and terrain awareness using Honeywell’s proven safety and information products.

The aircraft environmental surveillance system (AESS) optimizes performance by integrating weather, traffic and terrain awareness using Honeywell’s proven safety and information products.

Information is exchanged between the enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS), CAS 100 with mode S/ADS-B transponders and the RDR-4000 3-D volumetric weather radar to provide pilots with up-to-date flight safety information. Both weather and terrain information is displayed on a vertical situational display simultaneously to increase situational awareness. Integration also increases aircraft performance while reducing weight and volume.

The AESS is available on these platforms:

  • Airbus A350, A380 and A400M
