Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced that its Defense Solutions division was honored by Northrop Grumman at a ceremony held at Curtiss-Wright’s Integrated Systems facility in Santa Clarita, Calif. on August 19, 2015. The event was held to recognize Curtiss-Wright’s key role as a supplier in support of the RQ-4 Global Hawk UAS following the program’s receipt of the Dr. James G. Roche Sustainment Excellence Award for an unprecedented third year in a row. During the ceremony, an award was presented by Mr. Mick Jaggers, Global Hawk UAS Vice President and Program Manager, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Sector and accepted by Ms. Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. The event was also attended by Rep. Steve Knight, U.S. Congressman for California’s 25th District.

“We extend our sincerest congratulations to the US Air Force on this award and Northrop Grumman for their stellar job as the prime contractor on the milestone setting RQ-4 Global Hawk UAS,” said Ms. Bamford. “We take great pride in Curtiss-Wright’s role as an industry leader in providing advanced rugged electronics that help lower this important aircraft’s cost through the use of commercial-off-the-shelf technologies.”

During the ceremony, Mr. Jaggers remarked,“An aircraft as sophisticated as the Global Hawk comes together with the help of many partners, and one of the most crucial sustainment partners on the Global Hawk is Curtiss-Wright.”

The Sustainment Excellence Award is granted by Headquarters U.S. Air Force Logistics, Installations and Mission Support. It is named for Dr. James G. Roche, the 20th Secretary of the Air Force, a position he held from 2001 to 2005.

Global Hawk has flown 150,000 total flight hours supporting diverse global missions. Carrying a variety of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance sensor payloads, Global Hawk supports antiterrorism, humanitarian assistance, disaster relief, airborne communications and information-sharing missions.

Curtiss-Wright and Northrop Grumman UAS Programs
Curtiss-Wright’s rugged open architecture COTS subsystem technology has supported Global Hawk since the program’s earliest days. Starting in 1997, Curtiss-Wright has supplied the dual Integrated Mission Management Computers (IMMCs) that serve as Global Hawk’s flight control processors. The Company also provides the Sensor Management Unit networking subsystem responsible for Global Hawk’s mission management and data collection and interfaces all of the aircraft’s important payload sensors. The success of the Global Hawk has led to Curtiss-Wright’s participation in Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton program, the U.S. Navy’s new high altitude long endurance UAS. For Triton, Curtiss-Wright supplies the IMMC that controls the aircraft’s flight and the Advanced Mission Management System that communicates with its onboard sensors and relays data to the ground.
