Honeywell Primus Epic Integrated Avionics System

Honeywell’s Primus Epic integrated avionics system provides functionality, improved situational awareness and flexibility for helicopters. Featuring large liquid crystal flat panel displays, the integrated navigation (INAV) and graphical flight planning (GFP) allows for the quick, safe modification of flight plans with the ability to monitor weather, terrain, and air traffic. The flexible liquid crystal displays are scalable, allowing charts, maps, and electronic engine instrumentation images to be re-sized for easier viewing with both 2D and 3D graphic models. Because Primus Epic functions are software-based, this avionics suite delivers value as system updates, like future communication, navigation, and CNS/ATM-related products, are simple to install.
