Curtiss-Wright Controls awarded contract by Sukhoi Civil Aircraft

Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc. today announced that it has received a follow-on production contract from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) to provide the Fire Protection System for use on the Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) aircraft. The new contract is valued at $9 million, with an estimated potential value in excess of $18 million over the lifetime of the program. Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright will provide Sukhoi with its Fire Protection System technology, which will provide protection for the entire Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft, including smoke and fire detection and suppression in the cargo bay, engines, APU, wheel wells, lavatories, and associated electronics. Shipments are scheduled to begin in March, 2013 and are scheduled to continue through September, 2014.

"We are very proud to have received this follow-on production contract from Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company, which reflects and reaffirms SCAC confidence in our products," said Tom Quinly, President of Curtiss-Wright Controls. "This new agreement strengthens Curtiss-Wright's market position as a trusted partner for Sukhoi, and is further affirmation of Curtiss-Wright's expanding footprint in the Russian aerospace industry."

Curtiss-Wright's Fire Protection System is flexible and scalable for different size aircraft. The system's controllers feature dual redundant operation, DO-178B qualified software, and DO-160B environmental qualifications. A dual loop controller for improved dispatch ability provides sophisticated fault monitoring. Curtiss-Wright's smoke detectors are designed with advanced technology, using the multiple criteria particle discrimination principle, and are enhanced with the ability to discriminate false stimulants.

The Curtiss-Wright Controls Avionics and Electronics division (CWC-AE) division will manufacture the products covered by this agreement at its facility in City of Industry, CA, and ship them to Sukhoi in Moscow, Russia.
