Marotta controls completes first production shipment of Control Actuation Systems
Tuesday, 29 November 2022

Marotta Controls, a rapidly growing aerospace and defense supplier based in New Jersey, confirmed today that it has completed its first custom fin Control Actuation Systems (CAS) production order. The achievement comes less than a year and half after the CAS program was first announced and affirms Marotta Control's industry position as a trusted actuation system supplier. Notably, the company previously stated that its 2022 corporate expansion was partly driven by the growth of its CAS business and today adds that it expects that business to yield a 10 to 15 percent year-over-year revenue growth.

The initial shipments call for 30+ units per month, a quantity that is expected to increase to 300+ units by mid-2023. Marotta Control's production facility easily supports this volume and has capacity to quickly scale to meet more than two times that demand.

“Marotta Controls entered the CAS market roughly a decade ago. We have since developed more than 15 custom systems to support new and existing missile programs,” explained Steve Fox, Senior Vice President, Power and Actuation Systems, Marotta Controls. “While we've been told our innovations are technologically disruptive, we understand that true success is in our ability to consistently produce our concepts in volume not just prototype them. Today, we're proud to confirm that we've hit that benchmark and are well-prepared to meet the growing demand for our solutions.”

The CAS currently in production is a low-cost, high-performance solution designed, developed, and qualified in house to more than 20 military standards. It leverages several advancements such as an electromechanical missile fin control method versus the traditional pneumatic approach thereby increasing the missile's range. The modified design also reduces the overall system's component count, helping to drive down cost.

The defense supplier indicates that while this is the first CAS program to ship in large quantities, it is in the process of completing the qualification process on several others. Those programs are expected to go to production next year.
