Honeywell is known in Russia with its filters and automatic regulators for different engineering systems. The company's specialists are working hard during more than 125 years to improve the quality of products, to achieve energy efficiency, to reduce production expenditures, to create safe and comfortable environment for work and life.

The company's success made it one of the leading manufacturers of the new millenium. Honeywell services were numerously noticed by the governmental authorities. Recently Honeywell has won a five-year, $450 million contract with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) to provide Ground Systems and Mission Operations (GSMO) services for the agency’s fleet of scientific research satellites.

The NASA research satellite program is focused on gaining a better understanding on key issues such as planetary exploration, natural disaster characterization, climate change, ground topography mapping, agricultural efficiency, and electromagnetic effects on the earth.  Honeywell will work with GSFC to help extend the life of existing research satellites and increase optimization for new satellites that will support greater scientific space research activities in the future.

As part of the contract, Honeywell will also develop concepts of operations, provide systems engineering, and integrate and test new satellite ground systems from launch to orbit operations. The contract will continue through October 2016.
