Curtiss-Wright awarded $25 million contract from Northrop Grumman

Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that it has received a contract from Northrop Grumman Corporation to provide the Advanced Mission Management System (AMMS) for the Broad Area Maritime Surveillance Unmanned Aircraft System (BAMS UAS) program in the amount of approximately $25 million. The BAMS UAS will provide the U.S. Navy with a persistent maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance system to protect the fleet and provide a capability to detect, track, classify and identify maritime and littoral targets.

"For more than ten years, Curtiss-Wright has had the privilege of partnering with Northrop Grumman to provide advanced computer subsystems for the Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle," said Martin R. Benante, CEO and Chairman of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. "We are proud that our selection as a major participant in the BAMS UAS program, one of the most significant U.S. Navy programs in recent years, enables us to build on this successful relationship."

Northrop Grumman's RQ-4N, a maritime derivative of the RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle, will be the platform for the BAMS UAS suite of maritime surveillance sensors and communications systems. Curtiss-Wright will design, develop and manufacture BAMS UAS AMMS units at the company's Motion Control facility in Santa Clarita, CA. Hardware deliveries will start at the end of 2010 and continue through 2011.
