Ontic, which has facilities in Staverton and Bishop’s Cleeve, has signed three big new licence agreements.
The licensor and manufacturer of complex engineered parts for the global aerospace and defense industries has signed agreements with Honeywell to deliver a range of radar system and navigation and communication product lines.
Ontic will take on the P440/660/880 Primus weather radar system and the former BendixKing’s Gold Crown Multi-Hazard product lines, as well as a range of heat exchangers, valves, actuators, and oil coolers for commercial and military customers.
The Primus system consists of numerous components and is used to detect hazardous weather including turbulence and wind shear (sudden changes in wind speed or direction).
The RDR2000/2100 series and gold crown product line assist navigation, communication, radar, and safety systems, enabling ‘air to ground’ and ‘air to air’ communication, identification, and navigation. The incorporated ‘multi-hazard’ safety sensors perform TAS (Traffic awareness) or TCAS (Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance) and/ or enhanced ground proximity warnings (EGPWS).
All of these systems are used across a range of aircraft, including business jets, single engine aircraft, and helicopter markets, which have an active installed base of over 10,000+ platforms.
Ontic will deliver these latest licenses, along with a range of complementary products to the aftermarket, through its facilities in the US, UK, and Singapore.
The products will be transitioned to Ontic, subject to customary closing conditions.
