(06 Oct 2021)
Honeywell has unveiled an all-new
aircraft cockpit system, the first in the industry built with
an always-on, cloud-connected experience that is designed to
improve flight
efficiency, operations, safety and comfort.

The Honeywell Anthem
flight deck offers is powered by a flexible software platform
that can be customized for virtually every type of aircraft and
flying vehicle, including large passenger and cargo planes,
business jets, helicopters, general aviation aircraft, and the
rapidly emerging class of Urban Air Mobility (UAM)
vehicles.

“Honeywell is not just launching a new flight deck
today — we are changing the way pilots operate aircraft and
creating a more intuitive experience than ever,” said Mike Madsen,
president and CEO, Honeywell Aerospace. “In the same way we
moved from flip phones to smartphones, Honeywell Anthem will
transform the pilot experience with customizable controls operated
quickly and easily with a few swipes of the finger.”

Honeywell Anthem is designed to
solve two problems facing the aviation industry. First, it creates
ways  for increasingly complex aircraft to function with more
autonomy, relieving stress on pilots and promoting safety and
efficiency. Second, it enables the disjointed systems that support
an aircraft to work together more seamlessly to deliver
critical information to pilots.

Honeywell Anthem supports
growing levels of aircraft autonomy, leading to complete
autonomous capabilities in the future as regulations allow.
Enabling increasing levels of autonomy — whether it’s automating manual tasks for single-pilot operation or automating
more complex processes to reduce workload across all pilots,
maintainers and other service providers in a large fleet — depends
heavily on improving connectivity across aircraft systems.

Historically, mechanics and pilots had to be on board aircraft
with wired connections to transfer critical data like
maintenance status and flight plans. Honeywell Anthem allows for
this data transfer without needing to be physically near the
aircraft.

Additionally, individual support systems (fuel,
maintenance, catering, etc.) have also been disjointed,
forcing pilots to interface with multiple third-party apps,
websites and businesses both pre-flight and post-flight. The pilot
used to be required to integrate all this critical incoming
information and then provide notifications to numerous support
personnel prior to, during and after completing a flight.

As the world’s first always-on, cloud-connected avionics,
Honeywell Anthem generates and transfers data from
ground-based servers so those involved in a flight’s operations
have the information they always need. An aircraft doesn’t
even need to be powered on for pilots and maintainers to see the information they might need prior to launching a flight.

“Everyone who touches a flight is able to get information that
matters to them when they need it,” said Vipul Gupta, vice
president and general manager, Avionics, Honeywell Aerospace. “The
aircraft becomes accessible via the cloud computing
infrastructure, and things like maintenance data, flight plans
and overall aircraft status are stored automatically by the
avionics or via ground-based applications used by support
personnel. This means data is accessible by any authorized user
from anywhere.”

Honeywell Anthem’s connectivity capabilities
dramatically reduce pilots’ preflight preparation time,
including wasted time in the cockpit, by up to 45-minutes per
flight.

Honeywell Anthem seamlessly integrates
with popular electronic flight bag planning applications to let
pilots create, store and retrieve flight plans from anywhere.
After pilots load the flight plan remotely, it will be ready and
waiting when they arrive at the aircraft. This remote flight
plan loading is an industry first, enabled by the connectivity
built into Honeywell Anthem. Prior to engine start, flight deck
setups are also faster because many routine tasks can be
accomplished off board before getting to the aircraft.

Beyond
the benefits experienced by pilots and operators, service
providers from maintenance personnel to caterers will benefit
from Honeywell Anthem as they will have a higher level of
visibility into real-time flight details than before. For example,
prior to traveling to the airport, pilots can set up automatic
notifications managed via the new Mission Manager function so that
fueling teams, ground transportation and caterers are aware of the
mission plan, even if the plan has to change due to unexpected
weather. 

In addition to
its cloud-connected avionics, Honeywell Anthem’s smartphone-like interface is intuitive
and easy to use. It provides pilots and operations personnel with several
capabilities that dramatically facilitate access to data, improving
operational efficiency and safety. For  example, pilots or
operators — whether in the cockpit or on their device at home —
can customize the layout of digital displays within the cockpit
to their preference. With a few finger swipes, pilots can
reconfigure a screen or cluster of information just like they
would on their personal smart device.

Additionally, unlike
traditional interfaces based on limited text-entry or basic
graphical menus, Honeywell Anthem uses visualization and modern graphical and gesture-based methods, making the flight
deck much easier to use and more fun to fly.

Honeywell Anthem’s
display design allows aircraft manufacturers to achieve new,
modern aesthetics comparable to those in the high-end automotive market. Its 2K resolution displays
showcase the most advanced safety features available today.

Additionally, Honeywell Anthem can significantly reduce the
potential for ground collisions, runway incursions and runway
excursions by 50% with several new features that provide
pilots with unprecedented situational awareness. Those features
include the 3D Runway Overrun Alerting and Awareness System
(ROASS) and 3D Airport Moving Maps. Honeywell Anthem also provides
a track-based Synthetic Vision System, as well as an Integrated
Navigation Map and Vertical Situation Display.

Another of Honeywell
Anthem’s unique features is a web browser that allows third-party
applications and websites to run in the Honeywell Anthem
cockpit. For example, pilots, via a third-party app, can
display live weather cameras from the airport they are currently
traveling to. Right next to that, they could display live radar
imagery above the airport. Having more of this type of information
at pilots’ fingertips helps them make better decisions more
often.

Honeywell Anthem also integrates with Honeywell Forge, a
software platform that includes in-air and on-ground solutions
for flight operations, flight efficiency, and connected
maintenance in a single user interface. This integration
enables operators to make proactive decisions about in-flight
routing that save fuel and help avoid flight interruptions
because of maintenance.

For example, thanks to the always-on
cloud connectivity Honeywell Anthem provides throughout flight,
maintenance crews can be alerted hours ahead of landing and
have necessary parts and personnel on hand to quickly perform
any work on the aircraft and keep it in service for the next
flight. As a result, Honeywell Forge can help operators and
OEMs reduce labor costs associated with managing their fleets by
10% to 15%.

“When you combine unprecedented connectivity and
new features with our brand new, intuitive user interface that
can be tailored to look and feel exactly how a pilot wants, you’ve
got a truly game-changing system,” Gupta said. “Honeywell
Anthem is going to bring us closer to our shared industry goals of better pilot experiences and more autonomous flight.”

In
addition to use on general aviation aircraft, rotorcraft and
business jets, Honeywell Anthem will be available to future
aircraft platforms in the emerging UAM market segment. Honeywell
Anthem has already been selected by Vertical Aerospace and Lilium for their vertical takeoff and landing, all-electric
aircraft, the VA-X4 and 7-Seater Lilium Jet, respectively.

Vertical’s VA-X4 is a piloted, zero emissions electric
battery-powered aircraft. The aircraft takes off vertically,
travels at a top speed of 200 miles per hour while carrying up to
four passengers and is 100 times quieter than a helicopter.

The Lilium Jet is the world’s first electric jet that takes
off and lands vertically. It seats six passengers and has one
operator, with a cruise speed of 175 miles per hour and a nonstop
range of approximately 155 miles.

Both aircraft
are expected to take flight in the coming years with Honeywell Anthem
onboard.

“One of the many great things about Honeywell Anthem
is its ability to fit any aircraft — both literally and
figuratively. It’s scalable and customizable, meaning we can bring
this into almost anything that’s currently flying or will fly
in the future. That’s great news particularly for our UAM
customers,” said Stephane Fymat, vice president and general
manager, Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Aerial Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “The VA-X4 and 7-Seater Lilium Jet will
revolutionize urban and regional air travel, and those will be
some of the first platforms in the world to use Honeywell Anthem, which will, in turn, completely change how we pilot aircraft.”
