Curtiss-Wright Controls awarded contract by Kamov

Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc. today announced that it received a contract from the Kamov division of Russian Helicopters to supply rugged data acquisition systems for use on the new Ka-62 helicopter. The Ka-62 rotorcraft first prototype recently received its first public appearance at the MAKS 2013 air show in Zhukovsky, Russia, near Moscow. Under the agreement, Curtiss-Wright Controls' Avionics & Electronics (CWC-AE) division provided Russian Helicopters with its Acra KAM-500 data acquisition products. Shipment of the products was completed in late 2012.

“We are very proud that Russian Helicopters selected our data acquisition systems technology for use on its important new Ka-62 helicopter,” said Tom Quinly, president of Curtiss-Wright Controls. “This agreement, our first with Russian Helicopters, one of the world's largest manufacturer of rotorcraft, strengthens our Avionics & Electronics division's position as a leading supplier of helicopter avionics and further expands our business in the Russian market.”

The Acra KAM-500 is used to acquire and record test parameters during the Ka-62's flight testing program. Russian Helicopters will use this data as part of the certification process for the new helicopter. Importantly, the quality and reliability of the data acquired by the KAM-500 will make it easier to satisfy FAA and EASA requirements and help reduce the time required to certify the rotorcraft.

About the Ka-62

The Ka-62 is designed for cargo transportation, medevac and search-and rescue operations, and can also be used in the oil and gas sector and for corporate purposes. Built using new technologies and materials, the Ka-62 is a single-rotor design, with an enclosed tail rotor and an airframe and propeller blades consisting of over 50% polymeric composite materials.

The Curtiss-Wright Controls CWC-AE division manufactured the products covered by this agreement at its Dublin, Ireland facility. The products were shipped to Kamov in Lyubertsy, Russia.
