Curtiss-Wright Controls awarded contract by Honeywell

Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc. today announced that it has received a contract from Honeywell to provide Advanced Data Acquisition Units (ADAUs) for use on its Primus Apex® Integrated Flight Deck. The Curtiss-Wright Controls products will provide the conversion of analog and digital sensor inputs into digital outputs for use in Honeywell's intuitive, easy to use flight deck product. The initial contract is valued at $650 thousand with an estimated potential value of $37.5 million over the life of the agreement. The engineering phase has commenced, and hardware shipments are scheduled to begin in Q4 2012, and are expected to continue through at least 2027.

"We are very proud that Honeywell has selected our data conversion technology for use on the Primus Apex® Integrated Flight Deck," said David Adams, Co-Chief Operating Officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "This is our first avionics contract with Honeywell Commercial Avionics Group and significantly expands our long-standing relationship with one of our key customers."

"It's about taking an existing product – the standard data acquisition unit -, making it more powerful and enabling growth features that increase efficiency, capacity, and most importantly, enhance aviation safety. There's a solid trend throughout the industry toward making integrated avionics systems more aircraft-independent and Honeywell's ADAU concept makes this a reality," said John Todd, Vice President, Business and General Aviation for Honeywell Aerospace. "The ADAU approach plays a critical role in enabling Primus Apex to reduce the time and costs associated with adopting and certifying highly-integrated, custom avionics suites. By having the aircraft-specific data conversion done separately from the flight deck, OEMs and operators benefit from an easier and more straightforward path toward incorporating highly-desirable features such as low RNP navigation, ADS-B, or SmartView enabled by software upgrades."

The Curtiss-Wright's Controls facility located in City of Industry, CA, will manufacture the products covered by this agreement. The products will be shipped to Honeywell Commercial Avionics Group in Phoenix, AZ.
