Curtiss-Wright Corp., Roseland, N.J., signed a $16 million contract with Saab Aerostructures to provide the large cargo door mechanical actuation system for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Curtiss-Wright said the system is comprised of five major flight-critical sub-assemblies, including the lift, pull-in, latching, locking and vent systems for the B787 large cargo doors. Curtiss-Wright will manufacture these components at its Motion Control facility in Shelby, N.C.
