Honeywell, a parent company of Honeywell Automation, has signed a contract with Indian airline IndiGo to supply its on-order Airbus A320neo fleet with a suite of avionics technologies. IndiGo's new fleet of aircraft will feature several Honeywell safety-focused cockpit systems that will enable pilots to better monitor the surrounding airspace and provide greater situational awareness.
In a first for India's airline industry, IndiGo's A320neo fleet will feature Honeywell's SmartRunway/SmartLanding system. SmartRunway/SmartLanding increases awareness during taxi, takeoff and landing phases by helping pilots ensure that the aircraft has a stabilized approach and is configured to land. In addition to cockpit technologies, Honeywell will provide products and handle maintenance requirements for the Honeywell 131-9A Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) for IndiGo's new A320neo fleet.
The suite includes Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS), which prevents controlled flight-into-terrain incidents by monitoring terrain and obstacles in proximity of the aircraft.
