Honeywell’s Boeing 757 "Connected Aircraft" testbed is in
Asiacompleting a three-week mission to collect crucial
weather data.

Unlike the "Power of Connected" World Tour last year, during
which the aircraft visited more than a dozen countries in North
America, Europe, and Asia and demonstrated the capabilities
ofthe Connected Aircraft, this year’s deployment to Asia is
primarilyto collect vital scientific weather patterns and data
over Southeast Asia.
Joseph Duval, Honeywell’s chief test pilot, said Asia, especially 
at the intertropical convergence zone, has varying weather patterns
comparedto North America. It is with this in mind that the
team set out duringthe onset of the Southwest monsoon season
that is characterized byshort but heavy thunderstorms.
Weather data is picked up by the Intuvue RDR-4000 3-D radar,
whichhas a detection range of 320 nm and vertical scan from
sea level to60,000 feet. Other information, such as moisture
content is collected via probes mounted on the test-engine
Honeywell’s radar scientists and meteorologists analyze this
data to help calibrate the GoDirect Weather app, which
provides pilots with real-time weather data on their flight path
and predicts potential turbulence.
For these tests, the aircraft has thus far been based at various
countries, including Vietnam, Thailand, Australia, Singapore,
Jakarta, and Indonesia, during which Honeywell showcased
the JetWave high-speed connectivity to potential clients from
business aviation providers,leasing companies, and military
and police forces. The airplane will return to Honeywell's
headquarters in Phoenix at the end of the month.
