The creation of a new business is during a surge of interest to supply drones. Honeywell calculates that the market for hardware and software for city air taxi,
drone delivery of goods and other drone companies will reach $ 120 billion by 2030.
The company’s share may be 20% of the market. Honeywell does not tell you what part of the market it intends to capture with the new unit.
Honeywell produces drones himself, he develops the Autonomous flight control system and avionics.
Among customers Honeywell — Slovenian manufacturer of small aircraft Pipistrel. It develops electric aircraft for vertical take-off and delivery. Another client is a British
company Vertical Aerospace. Last year, she tested a prototype vehicle capable of carrying 250 kg and fly at a speed of 80 kilometers per hour.
Corporate venture Honeywell has invested in AirMap in southern California unmanned systems for air traffic control for drones. Honeywell also invested
the Swiss company Daedalean, which develops Autonomous control flight.
Honeywell is not trying to bet on who will develop the best drone. According to Murray Grainger, head of Honeywell Ventures, the company wants to sell drones all.
The new Honeywell is working on a pilot project on the use of QR codes for Autonomous landing, as well as developing a system which can help aircraft navigate
“urban canyons” where GPS can fail.
