Honeywell (Stand 463) has introduced an upgraded version of the Saber combustor for its HTF7000 series engine, which powers the Bombardier Challenger 300, Embraer Legacy 450/500 and Gulfstream G280. The Saber had already reduced harmful emissions by 25 percent, and the U.S. company claims that the Saber2 will further reduce harmful emissions while also increasing performance. Honeywell expects Saber2 to be available by late 2013, while an even more advanced version of the combustor is currently under initial development; however, it does not yet have a timeline for its availability.
