CHARLOTTE, N.C., 8 May 2012. Curtiss-Wright Controls Inc. won a defense contract to provide processor subsystems for an airborne program. Curtiss-Wright Controls engineers are integrating the company’s rugged commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processor boards, customer-supplied software, and a third-party payload into a custom, Curtiss-Wright chassis.
Curtiss-Wright Controls engineers are also performing environmental stress screening (ESS) of the integrated subsystem under the $3 million contract. Deliveries, which have already begun, are expected to continue through mid-2012.
Curtiss-Wright Controls staff are manufacturing products for this agreement at the company’s facility in Littleton, Mass.
