U.S. Army Multi-Mission Launcher program receives Curtiss-Wright's electromechanical actuators

CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Indirect Fire Protection Capability (IFPC) program will receive elevation and hatch control electromechanical actuators for use on the U.S. Army Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) in an initial contract with Curtiss-Wright Corp. The potential value is estimated to be $75 million over the life-span of the program.

In the agreement with the U.S. Army, Curtiss-Wright will provide modified commercial-off-the-shelf (M-COTS) solutions in-line with the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center's (AMRDEC) requirement for open system architecture. The solutions will be based on Curtiss-Wright’s Exlar electromechanical actuation technologies.

The MML is an air defense launcher built with open system architecture. Work will be performed at the Curtiss-Wright Sensors & Controls division facility in Chanhassen, Minn.
