From the power and thermal management system (PTMS) to the on-board oxygen generation system (OBOGS), Honeywell’s advanced technologies play a crucial role in the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II. This sophisticated stealth multirole fighter depends on a comprehensive suite of components for its unrivaled performance.

Unleashing Power In The Skies: Honeywell's Components In The F-35 Lightning II

The F-35 is one of the most advanced fighter jets currently in operation, with state-of-the-art sensor systems, network-enabled operations, and advanced logistics and maintenance systems. It is also notable for its stealth characteristics, which make it harder to detect by radar systems.

Our products, designed with the latest technological innovations, contribute significantly to the F-35's unparalleled capabilities. Explore our integral role in this extraordinary program:

The PTMS is an innovative solution that seamlessly balances power distribution and thermal output, ensuring smooth operation of the aircraft's myriad components.

Honeywell's advanced systems provide essential air cooling and pressurization for the cabin and equipment to maintain an ideal operating environment for both the pilot and critical onboard systems.

At the heart of the F-35 is Honeywell's GTS130 auxiliary power unit (APU). It provides essential auxiliary and emergency power, facilitates engine start-up and maintains power for onboard systems when the engines are off.

Our liquid cooling and bleed air control subsystems work in unison to ensure optimal temperatures for the electronic systems and the engine.

By effectively regulating fuel temperature, our fuel thermal management system optimizes combustion and engine performance while enhancing overall fuel efficiency.

Our fan duct heat exchangers and precooler systems maintain the thermal balance necessary for the durability and reliability of the aircraft’s systems.

Honeywell’s OBOGS turns ambient air into a steady stream of oxygen to the pilot. This game-changing system saves weight and space while enhancing operational efficiency.
