Honeywell’s SmartPath Selected for Chennai

Honeywell’s SmartPath — the world’s only Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS) certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) — has been selected by the Airports
Authority of India (AAI) as part of a pilot project for satellite-based precision approach and landings at Chennai International Airport.
With passenger numbers expected to grow across India, SmartPath will support future demand at Chennai International by reducing delays and journey times for passengers,
lowering operational costs for airlines, and increasing traffic throughput at the airport.
The pilot project is being led by the AAI in collaboration with the US-India Aviation Cooperation Programme and with partial funding from the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). The AAI plans to install further GBAS infrastructure at other Indian airports in the coming years as part of its air traffic management upgrade programme.
