The firms have teamed up to co-design and develop an advanced signal protection system.

Honeywell has signed a collaboration agreement with InfiniDome to jointly develop and deliver GPS signal protection systems for both defence and commercial applications.

The systems will be built to support a range of platforms, including commercial aircraft, urban air mobility systems, unmanned aerial systems and surface vehicles.


“In combining Honeywell’s best-in-class navigation sensors with leading-edge GPS resilience technology from InfiniDome, we’re working to develop a first-of-its-kind holistic solution built on tightly integrated layers of protection for all uses of navigation for unmanned air and ground vehicles,” Omer Sharar, CEO of InfiniDome, said.

“InfiniDome is proud to be working collaboratively with Honeywell to bring about the next generation of GPS protection technology.”

The collaboration project will focus on developing an offering that can handle loss or lack of GPS signals, reducing the likelihood of collisions and detour.

This is also expected to allow customers to increase payloads and decrease mission times by excluding costly sensors currently used to handle GPS interferences.

“Intentional GPS jamming and spoofing incidents are on the rise, and this partnership will enable a rapid solution to this critical industry need,” Matt Picchetti, vice president and general manager, navigation and sensors at Honeywell Aerospace, said.

This partnership will create world-class solutions that will help accelerate the future of flight, especially in urban areas.”

The initial offering is expected to be commercially available in the first half of 2022.

A preliminary version of their joint solution is currently being showcased at the AUVSI Xponential Show at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
