As informed, the company will provide the parts for Virginia-class nuclear-powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine and Ford-class aircraft carrier programs.

The awards were received from Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) and General Dynamics Electric Boat to support ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements.

“Curtiss-Wright is proud to have been awarded these important naval defense contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the U.S. Nuclear Navy and reflecting our ongoing support of these critical naval defense platforms, which continue to receive strong Congressional support,” said Lynn M. Bamford, Chair and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 

In April this year, the US-based supplier of electronics products received a contract to provide modular open system approach (MOSA) computers and digital processing modules for use in the US Navy’s torpedo upgrade programs.

The products will be used specifically for MK54 and MK48 torpedo upgrade programs. The contract has an estimated lifetime value of $70 million.
