Honeywell data-loading solution to empower connected aircraft capabilities

One of the world´s largest air carriers is the first to select Honeywell´s (NYSE: HON) Aircraft Data Gateway solution to quicken the transfer of data to and from an aircraft — regardless of the aircraft´s location, the company said.

The carrier selected Honeywell´s solution to save time from the traditional data transfer methods, which use multiple data-loading or interface units. Now one affordable, lightweight device opens up a world of capabilities for the Connected Aircraft.

Designed specifically for airlines, Aircraft Data Gateway-300 (ADG-300) is a single, compact unit that replaces multiple data-loading or interface units. Honeywell´s solution will help the customer manage real-time aircraft loading status, and eliminate the need to produce and distribute software and database media disks. The ADG-300 will reduce the customer´s data-loading times by up to 50 percent, thereby improving fleet operations and aircraft availability. The ADG-300 merges with electronic flight bags and pilot tablets, so flight crews can easily install the solution.
