LASEREF VI navigation system delivers flight-critical information with the highest reliability in the industry

ANAHEIM, Calif. – HELI-EXPO - Honeywell Aerospace's (NYSE: HON) LASEREF VI navigation system has been selected by Airbus Helicopters for its light helicopter platforms, the EC145 T2 and EC645 T2 family.

The LASEREF inertial reference unit (IRU) allows helicopter operators to always have an autonomous navigation source available in the absence of a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and radio navigation. The capability is especially useful when navigating during a mission when the GNSS is unavailable due to terrain masking, limited satellite constellation availability, or unintentional or intentional jamming.

"LASEREF will provide Airbus Helicopters with exactly what they're looking for - an always-available and highly reliable navigation system," said Varant Panossian, customer business manager at Honeywell Aerospace. "When you're in extreme situations, navigation is essential for everything from crew safety to completing critical missions."

Designed for fixed-wing and rotary-wing applications, the LASEREF is the lightest and smallest IRU on the market, but delivers the highest reliability in the industry. Its integration with a Global Positioning System prevents delays in information delivery and keeps operations running safely and efficiently even under harsh environments and demanding mission situations.

Honeywell Aerospace is exhibiting at Heli-Expo 2014 in Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 24-27, 2014. To learn more about navigation and other systems to enhance the safety and efficiency of your fleet, visit with Honeywell at Booth #6502.
