U.S. helicopter developer Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. has selected CPI Aerostructures Inc. to support its Seahawk program for the Navy with launcher technologies.
New York’s CPI Aero said Thursday it will deliver its Penguin Missile Launcher assemblies for integration with the S-70B Seahawk anti-submarine warfare helicopter.
CPI Aero, an engineering and technical services provider for several U.S. helicopter and fix-wing aircraft programs including the E-2D Hawkeye aircraft and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter, says the contract from Sikorsky is for approximately $680,000.
The S-70B Seahawk is the Navy’s twin engine multi-mission helicopter based on the Black Hawk airframe.
CPI Aero said in a release it will deliver its Penguin Missile Launcher assemblies beginning “in early 2011″.
