Honeywell signed an exclusive licensing agreement to provide the VistaNav Synthetic Vision System, developed by Mercury Computer Systems, Chelmsford, Mass., for the general aviation market. Under the licensing agreement, announced in April, Honeywell will assume sales and support of the VistaNav Cockpit Information System product line, which includes the CIS-2000 and -2200 Class II electronic flight bags (EFB). The synthetic vision system was developed by Mercury Computer’s Avionics & Unmanned Systems Group. VistaNav Synthetic Vision is a portable, 3-D synthetic vision system. During flight, the system generates dynamic, realistic 3-D imagery, regardless of external conditions. “With this new avionics solution, Honeywell expands our technology toolkit and allows us to offer more functionality for today’s cockpits and those of the future,” said TK Kallenbach, Honeywell vice president of marketing and product management.
