Honeywell Products on the A350 XWB
- Mechanical systems:
- The HGT1700 Auxiliary Power Unit and Starter-Generator are integrated systems that supply pneumatic and electric power for the aircraft while on the ground or in flight. The HGT1700 APU is derived from Honeywell's 331 series APU, is customized for the A350 XWB and is optimized with industry-leading technological advancements to reduce weight, maximize performance and provide safe, efficient and low-cost operations.
- The Air Conditioning System, Bleed Air System, Cabin Pressure Control System, Supplemental Cooling System and Ventilation System are all part of the integrated mechanical system. Through a holistic approach, Honeywell is able to provide a more comfortable experience for passengers by minimizing changes in the cabin environment and reducing the workload for the crew.
- Avionics systems:
- The Flight Management System introduces the latest advances, functions and features, while achieving the goal to create a common cockpit for Airbus wide-body aircraft, enabling pilots to easily transition between aircraft platforms. Honeywell's latest FMS technology reduces the workload for the flight crew and enables improved flight planning.
- The Airbus Aircraft Environment Surveillance System has also been inducted into the A350 aircraft among other Airbus aircraft. This system integrates the Traffic Collision Avoidance System, Mode S Transponders, the Weather Radar and the Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System modules into one system, reducing as many as eight avionics boxes down to two. Like the FMS, the latest innovations and features are introduced, such as ADS-B IN and Airborne Traffic Situational Awareness. The AESS provides critical information to the pilot to enhance safety and efficiency, while increasing cockpit efficiency.
- John Bolton, President, Air Transport & Regional, Honeywell Aerospace - "This new and innovative aircraft applies the broad range of avionics and mechanical products and services we offer in a highly integrated manner. Our joint effort offers Airbus customers, pilots and passengers a more efficient, safe and comfortable experience than ever before. The maiden flight is a great milestone we are celebrating with Airbus today, and we look forward to extending our relationship for a very long time."
