Curtiss-Wright Corp. was awarded an $8 million contract award by General Dynamics C4 Systems and Rockwell Collins to provide its general processor modules (GPM) for the Integrated Computer System (ICS) of the U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems (FCS) program. Under the terms of the contract, Curtiss-Wright will supply the processing modules to General Dynamics and Rockwell Collins for integration into the ICS system. The initial order is for more than 1,000 modules with deliveries scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2008. ICS combines previously independent computing applications into a single processing environment. ICS is a common computing environment for 13 of the 14 platforms in the FCS family of systems, which comprises a network of sensors, unmanned aerial platforms and manned and unmanned ground systems.
