Northrop Grumman's LCR-100N hybrid navigation unit has been chosen by
Beechcraft, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT)

and consists of high-performance, fibre-optic gyroscope-based inertial
measurement units and advanced microelectromechanical system triad
accelerometers.

The unit features gyro-compassing and hybrid navigation, including ARINC
outputs, which are essential for Required Navigation Performance flight
operations. The LCR-100N, in combination with the flight management system,
supports operations in extreme northern and southern latitudes and allows for
coasting through satellite outages.

leading platform in the twin turboprop segment and to expand our relationship
with Textron Aviation," said Eckehardt Keip, managing director, Northrop
