Crane signs Letter of Intent with COMAC to provide Doors Signals System for the C919 aircraft

Crane Aerospace & Electronics has been selected by the Shanghai Aircraft Design and Research Institute, a division of Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), to provide the Doors Signals System for the C919 Commercial Aircraft. A Letter of Intent was signed at Crane's Lynnwood, Washington USA location in December 2011.

The Crane Doors Signals System will monitor and communicate the position of the C919 fuselage doors, cargo doors and flight locks. The Doors Signal System will communicate with other aircraft systems as well as to door-mounted status panels.

"We are very pleased to bring our high-accuracy sensing technology and reliability to COMAC for the C919," said Ramin Aflakian, Vice President of Sensing & Utility Solutions for Crane Aerospace & Electronics. "With more than 40 years of experience, Crane is clearly the technology leader in proximity sensing systems around the world with over 12,000 systems delivered and in-service."

Nigel Duncan, Aerospace Group Vice President of Sales & Marketing, said, "The selection of Crane by COMAC furthers our strategic focus on the rapidly emerging commercial airplane market in China. Last year at about this time, we were chosen to provide the Brake Control, Tire Pressure Indication and Brake Temperature Monitoring System for the COMAC C919." The C919 is a new aircraft platform being developed and manufactured by Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC). The market is anticipated to exceed 2000 aircraft.
