Honeywell, U.S. Army to deliver next-gen navigation solution

January 11, 2023  - By

On Jan. 9, Honeywell announced it is ready to deliver its EAGLE-M Embedded Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (EGI) with M-code capabilities this year, after the United States Army completed the first test flight.

The Army tested the EGI units with enabled M-code on the MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned aerial system and validated it to be deployed on military aircraft. This year, the Army will begin migrating its fleet to the Honeywell EAGLE-M EGI with M-code, as this navigation solution enhances the resiliency of GPS navigation to enemy actions.

Honeywell is a leader in EGI for military applications and has provided more than 45,000 EGI units for several different types of aircraft in more than 30 countries.
