Curtiss-Wright was awarded a $15 million contract to supply rugged embedded digital signal processor modules for use on Saab's new Gripen Next Generation (NG) fighter.
The contract, which runs from 2010 to 2014, has an estimated potential additional value of $10 million over the lifetime of the program.
Curtiss-Wright's digital signal processor modules will provide the radar processing for the Gripen's fire control radar system. The company's Motion Control segment will develop the digital signal processor modules at its Ashburn, Va., facility.
"Curtiss-Wright is proud to have been selected to provide our digital signal processor technology for use on the next generation Gripen aircraft," said Martin R. Benante, Chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corp. "This award further demonstrates the value of our advanced technologies on a global basis."
