Orbit International Corp. gains $800,000 order for CVN 78 Super Carrier displays

Posted by Courtney E. Howard

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., 28 Dec. 2010. Orbit International Corp., an electronics manufacturer and software solution provider, won an order for roughly $800,000 to deliver displays to a defense contractor for use in the Machine Control System for the U.S. Navy’s CVN 78 class of super aircraft carriers. This order, combined with approximately $1,300,000 of aggregate orders received earlier this year, brings total awards for this program to approximately $2.1 million in 2010. Production is underway at the company’s Orbit Instrument Division facility in Hauppauge, N.Y.

Deliveries began this quarter and will continue through the second quarter of 2012. Company officials also anticipate between $300,000 and $400,000 in additional display orders for this program in the first quarter of 2011.

“Orbit's tactical, sunlight-readable, 21-inch monitors were developed specifically for CVN bridge applications,” Bruce Reissman, Orbit’s chief operating officer, comments. “Low-power, high-brightness LED backlighting techniques are employed to produce an outstanding visual picture quality for the viewing of mission critical data in very high ambient environments. This order comes after developing prototypes and building pre-production units for test by this customer.”

CVN 78 is the Navy's first major investment in aircraft carrier design in more than three decades and features improvements over the 1960's Nimitz-class design. CVN 78 includes a new flight deck with an improved weapons handling system, advanced arresting gear, a completely re-engineered electro-magnetic aircraft launch system, new and simplified nuclear propulsion plants, a new electrical power generation system, and reconfigurable design architecture.

CVN 78 was officially named Gerald R. Ford by the Secretary of the Navy in January 2007. The ship is scheduled to be delivered to the Navy in 2015. The Navy plans to build 11 Ford-class aircraft carriers, and construction of Ford-class aircraft carriers is projected to continue through 2058.
