Honeywell plans to deliver flight safety systems for C-130J Hercules military aircraft for Indian Air Force

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced that it plans to produce the military version of its Traffic Collision Alerting System and other key safety and mechanical systems for the Indian Air Force C-130J program.

"Honeywell expects to deliver the key aircraft systems that enhance flight safety – including our Military Aircraft Collision Avoidance System," said Vicki Panhuise, Honeywell Vice President, Military Aircraft. "The Indian Air Force C-130J will also operate with other Honeywell avionics, mechanical and lighting systems and components.

"Honeywell offers a complete product portfolio of aircraft systems that help to ensure mission readiness and aircraft safety," Panhuise said. "Other Honeywell equipment on the aircraft includes the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System, Flight Management System, Digital Autopilot, Control Display, Embedded Global Positioning and Inertial Navigation System and Radar Altimeter," Panhuise said. "In addition to these industry leading safety technologies, we expect the aircraft to operate with Honeywell's mechanical systems including the Environmental Control System, Auxiliary Power Unit, Nacelle Power Unit, Cabin Pressure System, values, fuel controls, and oil pumps. We expect Honeywell's interior and external lighting also be on board these aircraft."

The Indian Air Force has ordered six Lockheed Martin C-130J aircraft. As a result of the order and Honeywell's blanket agreement with Lockheed for aircraft equipment, the company anticipates delivering approximately USD $10 million in aircraft equipment for the program.

Honeywell produces aircraft systems for the military, air transport and business jet segments. These include leading edge avionics and safety systems including the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System, runway incursion avoidance systems for commercial and military aircraft, and global support services.

A diversified technology and manufacturing leader, Honeywell has significant operations in cities throughout India, with more than 8,000 people working in multiple locations. Honeywell has several partnerships in India, including the licensed manufacture of the TPE331 engine by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
