Position and Timing Signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems

Position and timing signals from global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) have become the primary source of navigation for vehicles across air, land and sea. But how do pilots or unmanned systems navigate when GNSS signals aren’t available?GNSS has seen a significant increase in intentional and unintentional disruptions including jamming and spoofing. In this podcast navigation experts Ben Mohr and Mohan Jacob discussing two suites of Honeywell offerings Alternative Navigation and Resilient Navigation aimed to help manned and unmanned aircraft operate when navigation is denied or unavailable. They answer questions like “what are the most common types of denied environments” and “Why, how we stay ahead of this.”Building on decades of leadership in inertial navigation systems for all kinds of aircraft and spacecraft, Honeywell engineers have made enormous progress in alternative navigation, aided by evolutionary advancements in sensors and other enabling technologies. Honeywell was one of the first companies to successfully demonstrate alternative navigation technologies in a GPS-denied environments.In this podcast we touch on the issue and how best to tackle it.

The Mind Behind the UV Treatment System: Dr. Arthur Kreitenberg

On this episode of Aerospace Unplugged, we'll be talking to an orthopedic surgeon who found his way into aviation in the most unusual way. It's a fascinating story that was brought to light during the early stages of the pandemic, but the work of our guest, Dr. Arthur Kreitenberg dates back much further than that. Dr. K is the inventor of what is now called the Honeywell UV Treatment System. It's a device designed to roll up and down in an aircraft aisle and use UV light to treat surfaces on an airplane on the light that's emitted from that device is highly effective in eliminating pathogens and viruses. Dr. Kreitenberg, who is both an orthopedic surgeon and an engineer originally called this product, the Germ Falcon before his company Dimer, partnered up with Honeywell in 2020 to take his vision to a wider audience. This technology is now being used by airlines and aircraft operators around the world, but it was a heck of a journey for Arthur to get to this point.
