Honeywell received a $65 million production contract for its Micro Air Vehicle, known as the T-Hawk. The contract calls for 90 T-Hawk systems, which each consist of two T-Hawk vehicles and one ground control unit, spares, training for operators and maintainers, and field support. Hardware deliveries of the 90 systems will begin in the second quarter of 2009 and conclude in December 2009, Honeywell said. Each T-Hawk, which weighs 17 pounds and is 14 inches in diameter, is equipped with video cameras that relay information back to foot soldiers using a portable handheld terminal. Honeywell said a civilian version of this technology is being evaluated by the Miami Dade Police Department for law enforcement applications.
