Honeywell helps aircraft operators comply with upcoming mandates

Posted 26 June 2017 · Add Comment

Honeywell has met the performance standard for transponders required by the European Aviation Safety Agency to make air traffic management safer and more efficient.

With the new certification, operators can upgrade their fleets with Honeywell’s latest transponder to comply with all Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast requirements for the DO-260B retrofit mandate, which includes firmware update and configuration changes.

As airspace becomes increasingly crowded, transitioning to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) based on GPS is key to safely navigating the skies and increasing efficiency. The Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency will require aircraft to comply with this mandate by January 2020 and June 2020, respectively. With approval from the European authority for aviation safety, Honeywell’s TRA-100B is the industry’s latest transponder designed for future growth to help operators conform with new industry standards. Honeywell’s TRA-100B transponder is currently being certified by Airbus and Boeing and supports all platforms from the two manufacturers, in addition to other aircraft fitted with TRA-67A transponders.

ADS-B is a key component of the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management Research initiative, which outlines a transition to GPS air traffic control to automated ADS-B systems aboard all European aircraft. With these systems, operators can experience operational and technical benefits that ensure greater levels of safety in a more congested airspace. These benefits include reduced surveillance costs, more accurate information about an aircraft’s position and consistent transmissions up to four times faster than current systems. In addition, Honeywell’s TRA-100B comes with a standard five-year warranty in all forward-fit and retrofit applications.
