March 5, 2009

BILLERICA, MA - GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies announces a 25-year pressure sensor contract with Honeywell, which includes production, aftermarket and spares. This contract is the largest aerospace deal in the history of GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies and is expected to generate $80 million over the life of the program.

“We are pleased to work with Honeywell on this project,” says Tim Povall, general manager of measurement solutions at GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies. “Our continued focus on designing and producing customized aerospace sensors that meet all qualification requirements allowed us to meet the complete needs of Honeywell for this program.”

GE will provide pressure sensors for the Airbus A350XWB’s air management and conditioning system, supplied by Honeywell. Honeywell will utilize the pressure sensors to help control and monitor the aircraft’s Extended Air System Perimeter (EASP). The EASP consists of the aircraft bleed air system, air conditioning system, ventilation control system and supplemental cooling system.

GE Sensing & Inspection Technologies designs and manufactures sensing instruments that measure temperature, pressure, moisture, gas and flow rate for demanding customer applications. It also designs, manufactures and services inspection equipment, including radiographic, ultrasonic, remote visual and eddy current, that monitors and tests materials without disassembly, deforming or damaging them. GE Sensing & Inspection’s products are used in a wide range of industries, including oil & gas, power generation, aerospace, transportation and healthcare. The company has 4,600 employees at more than 40 facilities in 25 countries worldwide.
