Shaping The Future Of Cargo UAVs


Your Challenges Are Our Challenges


Safety during flight will be top priority with more congested skies, and require enhanced autonomy and detect-and-avoid systems.


Middle-mile shipping and other applications require greater range and smarter operational networks.


Noise, cost and certification: winning acceptance from regulators, customers and communities will be critical.


Ready to Fly


Honeywell provides the fly-by-wire system, navigation sensors and satellite communications system for the Pipistrel Nuuva cargo UAV.

General Atomics

Honeywell's navigation systems and TPE-331 engine have made the MQ-9 Reaper, also known as the Predator B, the most successful military unmanned aircraft in history.


Honeywell technology flies aboard the MQ-25, an unmanned, carrier-based aircraft designed to perform aerial refueling missions.

Kaman Aerospace

Honeywell's mighty T-53 engine powers the K-MAX Unmanned Aircraft System, a variant of the K-MAX heavy-lift helicopter.

Avionics for Heavy-Lift UAVs


Honeywell’s fly-by-wire computers and navigation systems simplify flight and offer aircraft manufacturers more flexibility while meeting the highest safety standards in the industry.

Detect & Avoid

Honeywell’s detect and avoid tech integrates the IntuVue RDR-84K Band Radar and other sensors to provide traffic avoidance, obstacle detection, terrain mapping, weather imaging, landing guidance and other functions.


Honeywell’s advanced data communications deliver internet, weather, flight management and prescriptive maintenance to improve the flying experience and ensure safe and efficient UAM flight.


Honeywell's electromechanical actuators are built to handle the unique stresses of low-level, urban flight and the vibrations of multi-rotor designs.

Propulsion for Heavy-Lift UAVs

Integrated Propulsion

Honeywell’s electric and hybrid-electric powertrains combine motors, controllers, generators and cooling to make aviation safer, quieter and cleaner.

Cooling Systems

Honeywell’s Micro Vapor Cycle System (VCS) uses advanced technology to keep cabins, electronic components and batteries cool. Our oil-free systems are lighter and virtually maintenance-free.


Honeywell’s expertise as a development partner provides UAM builders with the certification experience to develop new applications, products and aircraft programs that meet fast-changing standards.
