Cobham Mission Systems Secures Fuel Tank Inerting Solution for a 5th US Major Commercial Airline

Global aerospace components leader wins prime contract to deliver proven ASMs to major U.S. Boeing 737 operator

Cobham Mission Systems, the U.S.-based global technology leader in fuel tank inerting systems (FTIS), announced a long-term agreement to provide air separation modules (ASM) for another major U.S. airline operating Boeing 737s (B737).  An aircraft’s ASM prevents the build-up of explosive conditions in fuel tanks by generating nitrogen enriched air to help lower the amount of oxygen in the fuel tank.  Since its introduction in 2015, Cobham has delivered 885 B737 ASM model NC1211 units which have achieved over 5,000,000 flight hours with no failures, providing our airline partners with substantial savings in ownership and maintenance costs.

“Cobham Mission Systems is delighted to partner with another major US airline,” said Jason Apelquist, SVP business development and strategy. “Our air separation modules are the most reliable in the world, with 2,100 delivered and more than 17,600,000 flight hours on commercial aircraft worldwide. We are proud to contribute to our airline customers’ aircraft operation and maintenance cost reduction efforts through the outstanding performance, reliability and life on-wing Cobham ASMs provide.”
