The First Cloud-Connected Cockpit System- Honeywell Anthem will be manufactured by Cyient and Honeywell. Cyient has inked a multi-year deal with Honeywell for this project.
The Honeywell Anthem flight deck will have unparalleled levels of connectivity, an exciting and intuitive interface modeled after everyday smart devices, and a highly scalable and customizable design. It will be driven by a versatile software platform that can be modified for virtually every type of aircraft, including passenger and cargo planes, business jets, helicopters, general aviation planes, and the fast-developing class of advanced air-mobility (AAM) vehicles.
With design validation for electronics, Cyient will provide turnkey manufacture and testing of multiple LRUs that comprise the Honeywell Anthem avionics suite. With the help of Cyient’s supply chain management technologies and Industry 4.0 linked plants, Honeywell will obtain predictable delivery schedules and continuous quality improvement over the program’s life. Cyient will also provide New Product Introduction manufacturing of initial builds and is currently ramping low-rate production orders to support demand in 2022.
