Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc. today announced that it has been awarded an approximately $8 million follow-on production contract by Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) to provide an upgraded Radar Signal Processing (RSP) solution for use in the U.S. Air Force Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) program. The estimated value of this follow-on order over the lifetime of the program is $22 million. Under the contract, the award began in November, 2012. The program is expected to continue through 2015.
“We are very proud to have been selected by Northrop Grumman to supply our rugged embedded processing subsystem technology to support the Joint STARS aircraft's advanced radar signal processing needs,” said Tom Quinly, President of Curtiss-Wright Controls. “This contract award reflects our success, including over three years of development and qualification testing, in significantly reducing the overall weight and size of the earlier RSP, while increasing system performance."
