This product family is comprised of flexible remote interfacing products tailored to meet a range of applications - from distributed Input/Output (I/O) management to actuation control.

Navigation and Guidance

GE Aviation is an industry leader in providing navigation and guidance systems, led by its core flight management system. GE provides a range of fully integrated FMS solutions for multiple aircraft types as well as platform components, value-added applications, advanced navigation technologies and a range of services to support its portfolio of products.

Vehicle Health and Data Management

Providing end-to-end support to acquire, transfer, process and analyze data to impact mission decisions, GE supports the full mission cycle with end-to-end maintenance, safety and training information systems for civil and military customers. Already in use on thousands of aircraft, these systems have been further developed for new aircraft like the A380, B787, F-35 and G650.

Crew Information Systems

GE has a long history of introducing the very latest display technology into the Aviation environment. Our modular designs enable maximum reuse with the latest design techniques to ensure delivery of world-class, affordable through-life products. GE develops products and systems that are essential in safety-critical aircraft applications for new or retrofit Civil and Military platforms.

GE has a range of displays that are stand-alone or as part of an integrated system for new or retrofit civil and military customers. Modular designs enable maximum reuse with the latest design techniques to ensure delivery of world-class, affordable through-life products.

Mission Systems

GE is a recognized leader in the control and processing of all mission-related functionality of military aircraft. We have extensive experience in a wide variety of systems and technologies, including stores management systems and autonomous air refueling systems. GE's land vehicle navigation systems are provided to various military vehicles, providing precision determination for any mission.

Inertial Navigation Products

GE Aviation provides innovative navigational grade Inertial Reference Units (IRU) that can be utilized for platform navigation, system stabilization and pointing applications. This IRU is based on a proprietary inertial gyroscope technology that reduces size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) when compared to units with similar performance.

GE’s IRUs are utilized on land, maritime and airborne applications with more than 5,300 units fielded worldwide. This product family is scalable to the customer’s specific needs. Options include standard or enhanced microprocessors and embedded military Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) GPS or embedded commercial GPS receivers.

AiRXOS – Unmanned mobility

AiRXOS, a GE Aviation company, is solving the big problems of unmanned flight – opening a new era in aviation that will change the way businesses operate and grow. AiRXOS unlocks the value of unmanned systems, giving enterprises, cities, and states the freedom to accelerate operations, improve productivity, reduce costs, and increase safety. With reliable, safe UTM platforms, a wide-range of regulatory services, and powerful hardware, AiRXOS is expanding advanced operations like BVLOS, to safely accelerate the business of unmanned aerial systems.

Military Advanced & Special Programs

GE Aviation’s Advanced & Special Programs (A&SP) organization exists to develop and transition cutting edge capabilities for advanced military platforms. From cyber-resilient vehicle and mission processing, to Manned-Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) architectures and autonomy enabling capabilities, or software defined radio implementations of cognitive networking and RF spectrum effects; A&SP is focused on helping our customers break through today’s most challenging barriers and accelerate the fielding of novel technologies into operational capabilities.

The new M-Series family of advanced avionics systems provides the high-performance edge-processing resources required to enable a wide range of vehicle and mission capabilities when size, weight, power consumption, and cost are critical. Low-cost attritable and one-way vehicles, small unmanned vehicles, and advanced platforms now have a family of cyber-secure, military-rugged systems designed specifically to provide the flexibility and growth needed for their mission.
