Honeywell To Supply 7E7 Flight Control Electronics

Potential value of programs awarded so far exceeds $2.5 billion

Honeywell has announced that it has been selected by Boeing to supply the Flight Control Electronics for Boeing's new 7E7 Dreamliner.

This is the third major 7E7 system awarded to Honeywell. Boeing previously named Honeywell to provide the Navigation (NAV) package and Crew Information System/Management System (CIS/MS) for the aircraft. Together, the systems represent a potential total program value in excess of $2.5 billion for Honeywell over the life of the 7E7 program.

"We are thrilled to have been chosen to provide these complex and critical systems for this next-generation aircraft - content that matches our strategy of providing technological value differentiation to Boeing while giving our shareholders a favorable return on their investment," said Bob Johnson, President and CEO of Honeywell Aerospace.

The Flight Control Electronics consist of:

-- The fly-by-wire (FBW) system. This electronic system replaces traditional mechanical cables and pulleys with lower-weight computers and data buses that electronically convey commands from the cockpit to the control surface actuators - the electric motors that move the rudder, elevators and other control devices.

-- Automatic flight control system (AFCS), also known as the autopilot. It provides "cruise control" type functions such as holding a particular heading and altitude and will give the aircraft all-weather auto-land capability.

Honeywell's selection to provide the navigation system and CIS/MIS was announced on February 5. The navigation system enables the flight crew to determine the airplane's location anywhere in the world and accurately navigate to its destination. The CIS/MS provides the aircraft operator with the general health of major aircraft systems.

Honeywell also remains a bidder on other 7E7 systems that have yet to be awarded by Boeing.

"Honeywell supplies major systems for the Boeing 717, 737, 757, 767, 777 and 747 passenger jet aircraft, and we believe our world-class technology and customer support will benefit Boeing's 7E7 customers," Johnson said.
