Phyre GOBIGGS system selected for UH-60 Black Hawk demonstration as part of AATD CTPD

Today Phyre Technologies, Inc. ("Phyre") announced it has been selected by Sikorsky Aircraft, a unit of United Technologies Corporation, to build and demonstrate a Green On-Board Inert Gas Generating Systems (GOBIGGS TM) system for the UH-60 BLACK HAWK, as part of the AATD Combat Tempered Platform Demonstration (CTPD) program.

Phyre's GOBIGGSTM is an environmentally friendly, catalytically based fuel tank inerting system designed to significantly reduce fuel tank vulnerability to explosion and thereby increase survivability of the UH-60 in forward operations.

Phyre's Chief Executive Officer, Stuart Robertson commented, "We are honored by the trust that both Sikorsky Aircraft and AATD have put in GOBIGGSTM and Phyre. After our successful demonstration at NAWS China Lake last fall, this venture with Sikorsky is a natural next step in the maturation of GOBIGGSTM." "Over the past six-years, Phyre has invested substantial resources in the design and development of GOBIGGSTM as a next-generation fuel tank system, which will replace older and less efficient technology - for fuel tank inerting in both military and civilian aircraft."
