Curtiss-Wright Controls will provide its rugged CHAMP-AV4 DSP processor card to provide signal processing aimed at improving the retrofitted torpedo’s targeting and tracking capabilities. The initial contract is valued at $344 thousand. The potential value of the contract is in excess of $10 million over the life of the program. Shipments have commenced and are scheduled to continue through 2016.
