Dassault and Honeywell Settle Lawsuit

 - January 11, 2007, 11:00 AM

Dassault Aviation has reached a settlement with Honeywell over a $60 million lawsuit filed against the avionics manufacturer by the French business jet builder in October. The complaint stemmed from software integration delays with Honeywell’s Primus Epic avionics platform, the baseline system behind the EASy cockpits in the Falcon 900EX and 2000EX, as well as several in-development Falcons. In its lawsuit, Dassault claimed that the setbacks postponed certification of the two models and damaged its reputation for delivering airplanes on time. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. In a statement, Honeywell said it reached a “mutually satisfactory resolution” with Dassault and that it welcomed the chance to continue the two companies’ “longstanding and successful relationship.”
