[Avionics Today 10-14-2015] Honeywell Aerospace has announced that its latest navigational technology will be available as an option on Airbus A320 and A330 aircraft in early 2018. The new Integrated Multi-Mode Receiver (IMMR) aims to offer Airbus customers access to the latest precision navigation capabilities and increases airport traffic capacity while decreasing weather-related delays, noise and operating costs through more efficient routing and improved navigation performance.

Honeywell’s IMMR navigation receiver will enable airline operators to access satellite-based navigation, such as Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) solutions, which allow more accurate approach and landing access than today’s land-based systems. The new navigation receiver will also offer expanded capabilities for landing in very-low-visibility weather conditions.
