Curtiss-Wright to Supply Data Recorders for US Navy Manned, Unmanned Aircraft

Curtiss-Wright has announced that it will deliver airborne data recorder solutions to the Naval Surface Warfare Center under a five-year, $34 million sole-source, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. U.S. and Australian crewed and uncrewed maritime aircraft will carry the technology, Curtiss-Wright said Thursday.

The company is expected to produce and maintain its Keyed Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Airborne Recorder Network Attached Storage offerings and related equipment such as docking stations and lab cable sets. The contract also stipulates training and engineering services support.

The K-BAR NAS solutions are intended to support the unmanned MQ-4C Triton and upcoming PMA-290 aircraft.

According to the company, its offerings are commercial-off-the-shelf and built using a modular open systems approach to streamline integration and replacement of internal components.

Curtiss-Wright CEO and Chair Lynn Bamford said the contract award reflects a commitment to supporting warfighters with open architecture data storage systems.

The company’s defense solutions segment is executing the contract.
