FARNBOROUGH, England 21 July 2010. Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced it will provide Atlant Soyuz its full avionics suite, including the IntuVue 3-D advanced weather radar, for their Boeing 737-800 aircraft in a contract valued at more than $7 million.

"IntuVue was the first system certified to the Federal Aviation Administration's new enhanced turbulence Minimum Operating Performance (MOPS), a feature that has demonstrated a 50 percent reduction in turbulence related incidents," says Mike Madsen, vice president of Airlines at Honeywell Aerospace. "It is also the only commercial radar that utilizes pulse compression technology, providing a higher resolution display of true weather hazards, for greater accuracy at a longer range."

Honeywell's advanced avionics suite for Atlant Soyuz includes Quantum Line Communication & Navigation System (CNS), VHF Data Radio (VDR), High Frequency voice and data radio, next generation Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS), solid state flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR), flight data acquisition management, airborne data loader, ACARS datalink communications management unit, cockpit data printer, automated fixed emergency locator (ELT), and survival ELT, wheels and brakes as well as retrofit.

The agreement covers four B737-800 aircraft that will be delivered through 2011.

Honeywell's IntuVue weather radar has been certified and flying on the B777 since 2006 and the B737NG since 2008. A military version of IntuVue has been flying on the C-17 military transport since 2004.

Deliveries are expected to start with the single aisle A320 family (A318, A319, A320 and A321) in the fourth quarter of 2010, with selection on the long-range A330s and A340s, including freighters, in the second quarter of 2011. It is specified as standard equipment on the Gulfstream G650 when it enters service.
