Honeywell Nav System to Serve EC145 and EC645 ‘T2’
Source: Honeywell Aerospace
Airbus Helicopters has chosen Honeywell Aerospace's LASEREF VI navigation system for 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.
