Kidde Aerospace & Defense awarded Airbus A350XWB overheat detection system

Honeywell has selected Hamilton Sundstrand's Kidde Aerospace & Defense business unit to supply the overheat detection system for the Airbus A350XWB (Extra Wide Body) family of aircraft. Hamilton Sundstrand is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The A350XWB overheat detection system monitors the aircraft environmental control system's bleed air ducts for overheat conditions caused by failures. The system features linear thermal sensors, interconnecting cable assemblies and electronic controls residing within the Honeywell Bleed Overheat Monitoring Unit.

"This selection demonstrates the value of Kidde Aerospace & Defense's technologies, processes and program team," said Tom Hillman, Kidde Aerospace & Defense's Aviation general manager. "This selection further solidifies our position as the industry standard for aviation bleed air duct hazard monitoring systems."

The A350XWB Overheat Detection System will be designed and manufactured at Kidde Aerospace & Defense's Wilson, N.C., facility.

Hamilton Sundstrand was previously selected by Airbus to provide the A350 XWB's Ram Air Turbine and electric power generation system. Through ECE, a Zodiac company, Hamilton Sundstrand will also provide the solid state power controllers for the aircraft
