The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

2 November 2022 - Unveiled last year, Honeywell Anthem draws on the company’s deep aerospace experience and marks the first cloud-connected cockpit system that can be customized for virtually every type of aircraft, including the rapidly emerging Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) segment.

As part of Hyundai Motor Group, Supernal is working with the Group’s more than 50 affiliates and external partners like Honeywell to develop its eVTOL vehicle for commercial use starting in 2028. Supernal is also co-creating the surrounding AAM value chain to help the industry scale in the coming decades.

"Honeywell Anthem will change the way aircraft are piloted, and we believe that Supernal’s aircraft will be a shining example of how aviation will evolve to be smarter and more sustainable," said Stéphane Fymat, vice president and general manager, Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Aerial Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. "Honeywell has a wide variety of ready-now solutions to help create a more sustainable future for the aviation sector, and we’re proud to be on this journey with Supernal.”
