Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON) said its latest navigational technology will be available as an option on Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft in early 2018.
The new Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver will offer Airbus customers access to the latest precision navigation capabilities — a cost-effective solution that increases airport traffic capacity while decreasing weather-related delays, noise and operating costs through more efficient routing and improved navigation performance.
Honeywell´s Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver (IMMR) navigation receiver will enable airline operators to take advantage of the latest in satellite-based navigation such as Honeywell´s SmartPath Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS), which allows more accurate approach and landing access than today´s land-based systems. The new navigation receiver will also offer expanded capabilities for landing in very-low-visibility weather conditions.
Honeywell is a diversified technology and manufacturing leader, serving customers worldwide with aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes, and industry; turbochargers; and performance materials.
