Curtiss Wright Corporation
: 27 February, 2007  (Application Story)
Curtiss-Wright Corporation has been selected by The Boeing Co. to provide its Advanced Smoke Detection System for the cargo compartments on the 747-8 Passenger and Freighter airplanes.
The system consists of Curtiss-Wright's newest and most advanced smoke detectors together with an electronic controller that monitors the detectors and alerts the aircraft crew in the unlikely event of fire in the aircraft cargo compartments. The system, one of the most sophisticated in the industry, was designed and developed by Curtiss-Wright's Motion Control segment, a leading supplier of aircraft fire detection systems. The company will supply this system from its Irwindale, California operation and will start delivery in 2008.

'This award demonstrates our superior product performance in flight-critical sensor systems and personifies the Curtiss-Wright tradition of innovation in the aerospace industry,' said Martin R. Benante, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. 'Curtiss-Wright is proud to enhance our long-term business relationship with Boeing on this exciting new program'
