Curtiss-Wright Secures Contracts to Support Naval Fleet
Services provided under the contracts will support the Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine and Ford-class aircraft carrier programs.
The contracts call for ship construction and submarine backfitting services, as well as the delivery of spare parts, Curtiss-Wright said Tuesday. Deliverables include propulsion valves, pumps and advanced instrumentation and control systems.
Curtiss Wright’s defense electronics and naval and power segments will be in charge of fulfilling the contract requirements. Work will be performed in New York and Pennsylvania through 2025.
Lynn Bamford, president and chief executive officer of Curtiss-Wright, welcomed the opportunity to provide technologies in support of the naval fleet.
According to Bamford, the contracts build on the company’s long-standing relationship with the Nuclear Navy.
The awarding of the naval defense contracts comes weeks after Curtiss-Wright secured a contract with Scientific Research Corporation to provide its Fortress CVR25 recorder for the military’s T-6 Texan II trainer aircraft.
The delivery of the Fortress CVR25 solution supports SRC’s work on upgrading the trainer aircraft.
Headquartered in Davidson, North Carolina, Curtiss-Wright supplies products and services for land, air and sea platforms. The company’s portfolio includes computing and networking modules, flight and data recorders, video solutions, motion control solutions and test and monitoring solutions.
