Navy turns to Honeywell to provide avionics displays for F/A-18F and EA-18G aircraft

PATUXENT RIVER NAS, Md., 19 Feb. 2012. U.S. Navy aircraft specialists needed several sizes of advanced multi-purpose displays for the avionics systems of the Navy Lot 35 F/A-18F jet fighter-bomber and EA-18G electronic warfare aircraft. They found their solution from the Honeywell Inc. Defense & Space Electronic Systems segment in Albuquerque, N.M.

Officials of U.S. Naval Air Systems Command at Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Md., awarded Honeywell Defense & Space Electronic Systems an $18.1 million contract modification Thursday to provide 124 full rate production advanced multi-purpose displays for the Lot 35 F/A-18F and EA-18G aircraft. The order consists of 70 5-by-5-inch forward avionics displays; 36 5-by-5-inch aft displays, and 18 8-by-10-inch avionics displays.

Honeywell will do the work in Albuquerque, N.M., and should be finished by December 2013. For more information contact Honeywell Aerospace at, or Naval Air Systems Command at
