PHOENIX, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has been awarded
a $4.8 million contract to install health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS)
onboard the entire fleet of U.S. Coast Guard MH-60T helicopters.

For the U.S. Coast Guard, the installation and use of HUMS is critically
important and paramount to the success of its missions. Unscheduled
maintenance events can cause mission aborts that are unacceptable in the
life-or-death situations that the MH-60T is often called to support. The
installation of Honeywell's Zing^® HUMS 1239 greatly increases the U.S. Coast
Guard's ability to complete its mission and has the added benefit of helping
reduce maintenance costs.

HUMS is a sensor-based monitoring system that enables preventative maintenance
by measuring the health and performance of mission-critical components. By
continuously monitoring vibration at numerous points throughout the drivetrain
and pinpointing mechanical faults before they become catastrophic failures,
HUMS provides actionable information that allows the Coast Guard to anticipate
mechanical failures and make anticipatory maintenance decisions. Honeywell's
HUMS products can be installed onboard or used as a portable system for rotor
or fixed-wing platforms.

The Coast Guard will use 42 Zing HUMS 1239 aircraft kits and 24 ground support
kits, all of which will be delivered before the end of 2012, to monitor
critical drivetrain components such as the helicopters' rotor shafts, making
sure that the aircraft is ready to fly at all times. The data collected by the
system is easily downloadable into a user-friendly ground station that allows
operators to quickly see the status of all selected components instantly,
without the costs associated with traditional contractor support.

The U.S. military as well as ministries of defense worldwide use Honeywell
HUMS products onboard rotor and fixed-wing aircraft. Honeywell HUMS products
are currently installed or in use on the following:

  oU.S. Army AH-64D, OH-58D and CH-47D
  oAll U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command rotor wing platforms
  oThousands of commercial rotorcraft including a wide variety of
    AugustaWestland, Bell Helicopter, Eurocopter, MD Helicopters, Sikorsky and
    other platforms

Brian Sill, vice president of Defense Americas Aftermarket, Defense & Space,
Honeywell Aerospace

  o"Honeywell is a leading provider of HUMS solutions for rotor and
    fixed-wing aircraft around the world. U.S. Coast Guard MH-60T operators
    will now have key insight and information about potential mechanical
    issues before they happen, which will help them keep the MH-60T platform
    running and available when needed."
