Kristin Slyker is using wireless technology to accelerate air travel
Wi-Fi connectivity is becoming increasingly vital among aircraft avionics. Now, networked airplanes are now keeping ground crews up to speed on things like fuel data, equipment performance and even weather conditions. We’re using inflight connectivity solutions like Honeywell Forge software to combine, coordinate and continuously analyze data from the fleet. It’s keeping planes, pilots and passengers from being grounded by unexpected maintenance.
Eric Rice orchestrates automation to boost productivity
Artificial intelligence and real-time feedback help us turn a cacophony of belts, rollers, pallets and merchandise into the chorus of moving parts that makes same-day shipping possible. All that information is transforming warehouse automation, funneling through a single spot that literally sees all and knows all to deliver increased productivity.
Maribel Wilson understands Hydrofluoroolefins: A big word with a bigger impact
Aerosols are everywhere; through the Solstice program*, we help reduce their environmental impact with cutting-edge compounds. The future of refrigerants, propellants and aerosol technology will mean less global warming potential thanks to compounds that trap less heat and deplete less ozone. It’s like taking 33 million cars off the road — just this year alone.
Data visualization is how Kevin Clinger reveals microscopic risks
A hospital is no place to catch a cold. HVAC software integrated into a building management system helps doctors, nurses and administrators detect and prevent the conditions that cause infections to spread. Factors like air pressure, temperature and direction of airflow can impact the rates of hospital-acquired infections. Our software solutions help inform the decisions that keep patients safe and comfortable, and experts like Kevin are making it happen.
Sean Byrnes is helping transportation get off the ground
As global traffic congestion continues to slow productivity and waste fuel, we’re exploring ways to rise above it. We’re developing avionics, flight control systems, and connectivity for Urban Air Mobility — automated, vertical-takeoff vehicles that can transport passengers and cargo above the traffic. Sound far-fetched? The technology is a lot closer than you think. A few of our prototypes are flying around right now.
Phoebe Henson is clearing the air for space travel
Travel to distant planets like Mars has long been a dream of earthbound explorers. We’re pushing it closer to reality by developing next-generation life support systems that scrub CO2 from the air aboard spacecraft on long-term missions. It’s part of our work with NASA to help make interplanetary travel safe, comfortable and, well, possible.
Willie Morrissette is helping airplanes reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 85%
Inedible crops, waste oils, mustard seeds, algae — they’re all playing a pivotal role in reducing greenhouse gas emission in military and commercial jets. Our materials engineers developed Honeywell Green Jet Fuel, which emits 65 to 85 percent fewer greenhouse gases than the traditional jet fuel it is designed to replace. It’s helping keep Earth greener and our atmosphere cleaner.
Sema Tutucu is building walls out of ones and zeroes
Today, infrastructure built to withstand hurricane-strength storms can be taken down with a few keystrokes. Our increasingly connected world has made our job, and hackers’ jobs, easier. Using real-time data and intelligent analytics, we’re making cyberspace a safer place. In it, people and devices can seamlessly connect and share information with a reduced risk of a network failure.
Charlotte Loomis is helping improve hearing conservation for workers
We invented state-of-the-art hearing protection that listens along with you. Whenever it hears something it doesn’t like — unsafe noise levels — it alerts safety managers to the situation so they can take action, moving workers away from the noise before it can cause hearing damage.
Alicia Kempf is turning virtual simulations into real-world solutions
The only thing more expensive than building a factory is building it twice. Using spatial intelligence graphs and virtual modeling software, we created a way for businesses to run simulations of entire factories, so they’re made right the first time. These simulations find opportunities for efficiencies in places you’d least expect — like the ductwork of a sub-basement.
Hector Chinolla is looking out for first responders who put their lives on the line
During a fire, temperatures can reach 400–500 F. Add in toxic fumes, and you have one of the most inhospitable environments in the world. We developed a thermal layer that rapidly vents heat after leaving a super-heated environment and a mask capable of blocking 99.9 percent of nanoparticles so firefighters can stay safe for the seconds they need to save someone’s life.
