Sikorsky selects Spectrum to provide complete fuel system kit for next generation S-97 Raider™ helicopter

Sikorsky Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX) has selected Spectrum Associates, Inc. as a member of a newly-formed team that is building the S-97 RAIDER™ helicopter — a next-generation rotorcraft to be flown in 2014. Spectrum will design and integrate the components that comprise the fuel system into the aircraft, and will provide Sikorsky with the completed fuel system in kit form.

Sikorsky and its team suppliers are self-funding the design and manufacture of two S-97 Raider prototype aircraft for flight evaluation by the U.S. military in 2014. The program is currently in the advanced design stage.

"We're very pleased to be participating in Sikorsky's S-97 RAIDER helicopter program," said Marc Driscoll, Spectrum sales and marketing director. "Designing and engineering how complex components fit into a predetermined space as a completed assembly is Spectrum's specialty."

A preferred Sikorsky Supplier Team Member for more than 40 years, Spectrum will perform the work at its 36,000 sq. ft. facility in Milford, Conn.
