Honeywell selected to supply avionics systems

Honeywell has been selected to provide avionics systems for two new Gulfstream business jets, the G300 and the G500. Terms of the agreement were not announced.

Honeywell will supply its next generation Primus Epic integrated avionics system for the PlaneView cockpit for the G500 and its SPZ-8400 avionics system for the G300.

The Honeywell SPZ-8400 integrated avionics system for the G300 features six, 8-by-8-inch, full colour displays, digital flight control, NZ-2000 flight management system with performance management and dual inertial reference systems.

Based on Honeywell’s Primus Epic avionics system, the G500 PlaneView cockpit features four, 14-inch multi-function, flat-panel liquid crystal display units offering a 35 percent increase in display area over previous systems.

The Primus Epic system is also said to provide the functionality for the integrated navigation system which displays moving map with terrain, airport symbols with runway orientation and real-time satellite or radar images of up-linked weather.
