Honeywell has agreed to acquire Italy’s Civitanavi Systems, a provider of high accuracy inertial navigation and stabilization systems, in a deal worth around €200 million.

The acquisition is expected to further strengthen Honeywell’s capabilities to help customers create autonomous operations in aircraft and other vehicles. 

Together with Civitanavi, Honeywell will be able to offer a broader set of technologies to its customers across the globe, whether they are traditional operators seeking to increase the autonomous capability of their existing fleets or are new entrants in the Advanced Air Mobility space.

Civitanavi’s product offerings of inertial navigation, geo reference and stabilization systems will complement technologies in Honeywell’s existing navigation and sensors business.

Civitanavi specializes in high-performance Fiber Optic Gyro technology that Honeywell has not previously offered in its navigation portfolio.

“By integrating Civitanavi’s inertial technologies and sensors across Honeywell’s existing commercial, military, space and industrial platforms, our customers across the globe will now have access to a more robust portfolio of aerospace navigation solutions in support of their journey toward autonomous operations,” said Honeywell Aerospace Technologies President & CEO Jim Currier.

“With this acquisition, we will be able to immediately expand our offerings to customers in the European Union through Civitanavi’s navigation solutions, a capability we intend to further build out in the near-term. We look forward to adding this critical technology to our portfolio to help accelerate the growth of our Aerospace business. We are excited to welcome Civitanavi’s talented workforce as our newest Honeywell Futureshapers,” Currier added.
