'The award of this contract confirms our engineering expertise in providing advanced performance and innovative design solutions to meet demanding requirements, and in doing so, deliver profound value to the end customer.'

With over 50 years of experience, Curtiss-Wright is a leader in designing and manufacturing ship-borne aircraft handling systems, underwater sensor handling and specialized structures for military customers. The company designs and manufactures hangar doors to withstand severe demands from wind and shock loads, ship motion and pressures, all at the lightest possible weight.
