Honeywell Avionics Shanghai said it has upgraded its product repair capabilities at the China unit, providing quicker turnaround times for repairs and improved customer support in the Asia Pacific region. According to a company press release, turnaround time will be reduced by as much as 60%.
This upgrade would affect the manufacturer’s traffic alert and collision avoidance system TPA100D and RDR4000 IntuVue 3-D weather radar, which are equipped on Boeing and Airbus fleets, including the region’s Air China, China Eastern Airlines, 9 Air and Chengdu Airlines.
The traffic and collision avoidance system enhances airborne situation awareness, while the weather radar provides insight into airborne weather hazards.
The manufacturer recently said the systems are making their way into Lockheed Martin’s new LM-100J Super Hercules commercial freighter.
