US Army Awards Honeywell $41m APN-209 Radar Altimeter Contract


APN-209 Radar Altimeter

Honeywell Aerospace has secured a contract from the U.S. Army and was awarded $41 million to continue supplying its combat-proven radar altimeters for use across the Army's full fleet of helicopter platforms. Claimed to be one of smallest, lightest, and most proven altimeters in the market, the APN-209 provides the pilot and flight control computer with an indication of height above the nearest terrain point below the aircraft, such as a tower or building. This information ensures that the pilot and crew have the most accurate information about the landscape around their helicopter. Honeywell's lightweight, compact APN-209 radar altimeter is a critical piece of safety and awareness equipment designed to work well in a helicopter's operating environment, specifically in the hover phase and low-level flight.

"Honeywell has delivered more than 150,000 radar altimeters to defense and commercial customers around the world," said Carey Smith, president, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. "Since 1975, Honeywell's radar altimeters have helped keep Army helicopters safe in multiple theaters of combat, and dramatically increased performance across missions and in all types of weather and conditions."
