Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a leading supplier of Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)-based solutions, has been awarded a firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract in excess of $8.7 million by the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division to supply its MOSA-based single board computer (SBC) technology in support of the AN/UPX-24(V) identification friend or foe (IFF) processor sets.

Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright will provide its SVME-183 VMEbus SBC to the U.S. Navy at St. Inigoes, Maryland. The award is the third consecutive multi-year IDIQ contract Curtiss-Wright has received in support of the program. This contract, which began in November 2022, is scheduled to run through the end of 2024.

“We are proud of our ongoing support for the U.S. Navy’s important AN/UPX-24(V) friend or foe identification processing system,” said Chris Wiltsey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions division. “This contract further strengthens the long and successful relationship we have with the U.S. Navy, and highlights our ability to enhance interoperability and improve cost efficiencies with electronics systems that adhere to the DoD’s mandate for a modular open architecture approach.

“We have supplied our cost-effective open standards based single board computers in support of this program since 2012, and our selection reflects the U.S. Navy’s continued confidence in Curtiss-Wright as a trusted supplier. We are also excited to participate in numerous additional projects with this customer that will enable us to support future upgrades to this processing subsystem with our VME and VPX MOSA solutions.”

The use of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based MOSA solutions and commercial best practices delivers cost-effective new capabilities and supports more economical and timely upgrades for U.S. Navy RADAR processing systems such as the AN/UPX-24(V).
