Barco to supply custom avionics displays to Honeywell

KORTRIJK, Belgium, 3 Mar. 2009. Barco attained its 80th reference platform as part of an agreement with Honeywell to supply custom-built avionics displays for installation on the Dassault Falcon 900 business aircraft.

The contract is part of an upgrade program that will equip the Falcon 900 jets with an advanced Honeywell Primus 2000XP flight deck.

"The advanced Barco DU-875 displays will help provide Falcon 900 operators with increased situational awareness, efficiency, and safety," says Yves Vanhauwaert, general manager avionics at Barco. "In addition, they will bring extensive growth capabilities for future avionics functionalities."

Integrating Barco's proven avionics building blocks, the Honeywell DU-875 displays will offer pilots the same performance and flexibility as the most sophisticated cockpits in operation today. The retrofit displays will deliver extensive functionality, including advanced charts, maps, and graphics. Moreover, the DU-875 will accommodate options such as XM graphical weather, Jeppesen charts and maps, and video. The unit complies with the DO-178B and DO-254 level A design guidelines.
