Honeywell focuses on military platforms
Honeywell, which was issued an RFP in October last year for the muchanticipated Jaguar re-engining contract, will be at Aero India in a big way this year as well. While focusing on concluding a deal for the F-125 IN engine for the Indian Air Force’s Jaguar fleet, the US firm will also be showcasing support packages for indigenous military platforms including the ALH Dhruv, light combat helicopter and HJT-36 Sitara intermediate jet trainer. The company is also a participant in other programmes, providing safety and mechanical systems in the P-8I programme for the Indian Navy, the C-130J fleet and the yet to be concluded medium multi-role combat aircraft bid.
The company will also be showcasing soldier protection systems, including the Spectra Shield series of protective plates. The company lists its key technology pursuits as the F-125 IN engine for the IAF Jaguar, T-Hawk micro-air vehicle, advanced medium combat aircraft, multi-role transport aircraft and light combat helicopter.
