Ontic is licensed for Honeywell weather radar systems
Ontic is excited to secure another license with Honeywell and looks forward to supporting this complex, flight critical product for the existing customer base.

OEM and MRO services provider Ontic has signed an exclusive licence agreement with Honeywell for the RDR4A/B weather radar systems used on many business jets.

Ontic will leverage its existing facilities and repair teams in the US, Europe and Asia to ensure continued customer support. The products are installed across a wide range of platforms and add to the existing radar capability that Ontic already has established at its Chatsworth facility in Los Angeles. The transition will be managed by its dedicated global project management office team.

This latest agreement adds to the large portfolio of exclusively licensed products between the two companies in a relationship that began in 1983.

Vice president and chief commercial officer Gareth Blackbird says: “We're excited to secure another licence with such a key partner and look forward to supporting this complex, flight critical product for the existing customer base.”

“Honeywell has a long-standing relationship with Ontic with many such license arrangements. This exclusive licence for RDR 4A/4B weather radar product lines will continue that partnership and enhances value for our end customers,” adds Honeywell VP and GM avionics said Vipul Gupta.
