    With just two weeks before we go plummeting off the so-called fiscal cliff, corporate executives are intensifying their push for a compromise out fear of the economic consequences. One business leader taking on a bigger role in trying to get a deal done is Honeywell (HON) CEO David Cote, who has become a key go-between for Republicans and the White House. Cote’s role marks a big change from last year’s messy debt-ceiling debate, as business execs aren’t sitting on the sidelines this time. “We’re not confident that our guys can govern anymore,” says Cote.

    Honeywell (HON -0.1%) may be poised for gains once the "fiscal cliff" issue gets put behind us and budgets begin to bloom again. The company has created a radar technology designed to save the airline industry a fortune. The new radar system, designed for aircraft, can actually predict where dangerous weather will be from hundreds of miles away, thus allowing pilots to quickly adjust for severe weather and ensuing turbulence. In-flight turbulence causes more injuries on an airplane than anything else, and cost airlines on average $150K per incident. (Video)
