Esterline CMC Electronics awarded contract extension by Sikorsky for additional flight management systems for U.S. Army UH-60M and S-70i™ International BLACK HAWK helicopters

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) has received an extension valued at $23.6 million to a purchase order from Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation for an additional quantity of CMC's CMA-2082MC Flight Management System (FMS) and CMA-2088 Emergency Control Panel (ECP) in support of the U.S. Army UH-60M and S-70i™ international BLACK HAWK helicopters.

Deliveries are scheduled at the end of 2012. CMC was awarded the original purchase order by Sikorsky in support of their multi-year seven contract with the U.S. Army in January, 2007. Two CMC FMSs and one ECP are installed per aircraft.

Greg Yeldon, CMC president, said, "This extension to our contract with Sikorsky is excellent news and a solid show of confidence in our Flight Management System to support the needs of the U.S. Army. By utilizing an open architecture design, our FMS is proving to be a powerful and flexible platform with excellent growth capability. Our customers can upgrade their systems easily and be in a position to meet future requirements."

CMC's CMA-2082MC is currently flown on the HH-60M MEDEVAC, the UH-60M Utility/Troop Transport as well as the S-70i helicopters. CMC's involvement with the BLACK HAWK helicopter dates to the early 1990s when it developed an integrated communications and navigation system for the U.S. Army National Guard UH-60Q helicopter. This was the first U.S. Army medical evacuation aircraft to have its communication and navigation equipment integrated via a 1553 data bus. This system was later mandated as a standard for the UH-60M helicopter.

The CMA-2082MC is a complete FMS with radio management. It features an extensive portfolio of navigation, communications, database, mission and display software. For added flexibility, the CMA-2082MC offers multiprocessor support for the development of independent or customer designed software applications. CMC's modular FMS is powerful and flexible, with the added benefits of small size, low weight and reduced cost
