DAYTON, Ohio, 25 March 2010. -- Avionics designers at MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (MDA) in Richmond, British Columbia, needed high-altitude rugged storage systems for the Canadian CP-140 Aurora maritime patrol aircraft. They found their solution from The Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems segment in Dayton, Ohio.
MDA awarded a $1.17 million contract to Curtiss-Wright for its SANbric storage area network (SAN) storage system for the Canadian CP-140, a variant of the U.S. Navy P-3 Orion maritime patrol aircraft.
The SANbric units for MDA will be manufactured by the Curtiss-Wright Electronic Systems's facility in Littleton, Mass. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright online at www.cwcembedded.com, or MDA at www.mdacorporation.com.
