Ontic, a leading OEM, and MRO services provider for established aircraft in the commercial, military, and rotorcraft markets, has signed an exclusive license agreement with Honeywell for the RDR4A/B Weather Radar Systems.

Ontic will leverage its existing facilities and repair teams in the USA, 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 our 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.

Gareth Blackbird, Ontic Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, said, “We’re excited to secure another license 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 license for RDR 4A/4B weather radar product lines will continue that partnership and enhances value for our end customers,” said Vipul Gupta, VPGM Avionics for Honeywell Aerospace.
