Honeywell announced on July 22 at Oshkosh Airshow that it is developing a Multi Function Display (MFD) for general aviation that will incorporate both Global Positioning System (GPS) and Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) capability as well as a new software-based VHF communication and navigation radio.
The KSN 770 system will feature a state-of-the-art graphical interface originally designed for Honeywell’s large, integrated business aircraft cockpits. This system, called INAV® GA, is designed to make flying easier and safer. Honeywell expects to certify the Bendix/King® KSN 770 in late 2008. The unit will be competitively priced with similar WAAS receivers.
