Honeywell Inc., Clearwater, Florida, has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with estimated ceiling of $3,517,000,000 for Embedded GPS Inertial Navigation System Modernization (EGI/EGI-M) follow-on production and sustainment. This contract provides production, sustainment and engineering technical services in support of the EGI/EGI-M system. Work will be performed in Clearwater, Florida, and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2035. This contract will allow foreign military sales. This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition. Fiscal 2020 procurement funds in the amount of $1,635,018 are being obligated for the first order of EGIs for the F-15 aircraft. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, is the contracting activity.
Since the mid-1990s, Honeywell has produced and delivered more than 60,000 embedded global positioning system inertial navigation systems (EGI). Designed to provide maximum flexibility, our EGIs meet the most challenging military requirements, along with civil interoperability capabilities. Our products have a strong performance record for the most challenging navigation, pointing, stabilization and flight control applications. The EGI family includes the H-764, in use on most military aircraft, and the FALCN, providing all the features and performance of the H-764 in a smaller package. The H-764 legacy uses a larger chassis to maintain commonality with legacy aircraft.
These systems are self-contained, all-attitude, tightly-coupled navigation systems that provide the following outputs, linear and angular acceleration, linear and angular velocity, position, attitude (roll, pitch), platform azimuth, magnetic and true heading, altitude, body angular rates, time tags and coordinated universal time (UTC) synchronized time. Honeywell EGIs provide a robust civil certification to DO-178 and DO-254, enabling much easier certification at the aircraft level for features such as automatic dependence surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B), required navigation performance (RNP) / area navigation (RNAV), wide area application services (WAAS) and more. It meets export classification USML VIII(e). With adversaries challenging the availability of GPS more and more each day, Honeywell has partnered with leading GPS anti-jam suppliers to provide an integrated, turn key solution that adds advanced anti-jam capability as an option for Honeywell’s EGIs.
