IntuVue – Honeywell’s family of advanced 3-D weather radar systems for air transport, business and military aircraft.
Did you know weather costs the aerospace industry billions of dollars each year?
- Weather-related delays & cancellations cost the U.S. economy $18B in 2007.
- Turbulence-related incidents cost airlines on average $150K/incident. Total cost to the industry exceeds $100M/year.
- Business jet operators experience approximately 180,000 flights that are delayed due to weather, costing an estimated $340M.
IntuVue helps to minimize the financial impact of severe storm activity while providing maximum aircraft efficiency, safety and performance over traditional radar systems:
- Enables rerouting sooner through longer-range weather hazard detection.
- Increases crew efficiency by reducing pilot workload through automatic operation and intuitive displays.
- Provides greater safety using the most advanced predictive windshear and MOPS certified enhanced turbulence detection and alerting capability.
- Enhances crew and product performance through fleet commonality, increased reliability and advanced weather hazard detection and analysis.
These features and advanced technology enable pilots to quickly identify and analyze weather hazards at up to 320 nautical miles, for improved safety, fuel efficiency and on-time arrivals. Pilots have demonstrated a 26% improvement in decision making using IntuVue.

Honeywell’s IntuVue 3-D Weather Radar helps increase in-flight situational awareness and improves pilot’s decision making in flight. Previously unable to anticipate either hail or lightning in their flight path, pilots are now able to predict the probability of severe weather up to 10 minutes in advance. IntuVue 3-D also enables the long range detection of turbulence - up to 70 miles ahead, the longest range available today, providing the flight crew with more time to reroute or initiate turbulence avoidance procedures. Our Storm Chaser video showcases some of the media reviews IntuVue received following a series of demonstration flights when we flew journalists in to the heart of a storm!
