Navy asks EFW to build 132 avionics mission computers for Navy and Air Force V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft
PATUXENT RIVER NAS, Md. – Military avionics experts at EFW Inc. in Fort Worth, Texas, will provide 132 integrated avionics processors (IAP) for the U.S. Navy and Air Force V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft under terms of a $17.8 million order announced Wednesday.
This order consists of 106 processors for the Navy and 26 for the Air Force.
EFW engineers use an open-system architecture that relies on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components to produce a high-performance, scalable, and maintainable avionics computer for the V-22.
The company's mission computers have an open architecture that is suited for several different aircraft to provide general-purpose processing and display processing not only for the V-22, but also for the Boeing AH-64E Apache Guardian attack helicopter, and the Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota utility helicopter.
On this order EFW will do the work in Haifa, Israel, and Fort Worth, Texas, and should be finished by February 2021. For more information contact EFW online at www.elbitsystems-us.com.
