UTC Aerospace Systems Secures New Contracts with Boeing to Supply Additional Systems for the 777x
FREMONT, CA: In addition to numerous contracts acquired by UTC Aerospace Systems last year for Boeing’s ambitious 777x, the Farmington based company has managed to secure new contracts for three additional systems for the commercial jet. The 777x is planned to be the world’s largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp designs and manufactures systems and components for the aviation and defense industries.
As a part of this new development UTC Aerospace Systems will provide horizontal stabilizer trim actuator and ground maneuvering camera system (GMCS) to the aircraft manufacturer. The horizontal stabilizer trim actuator, a flight-critical component moves the horizontal stabilizer to trim and stabilize the aircraft in the pitch axis during flight. The flight control system component is being developed by the vendor’s Ratier-Figeac subsidiary. The GMCS feeds live video to the cockpit from nose gear, main gear and wingtip areas facilitating taxiway maneuvering. The system also offers a unique passenger experience by providing a wingtip to wingtip view from the aircraft's vertical stabilizer through in-flight entertainment (IFE) video. To mitigate the risk of parts obsolescence, the GMCS is customizable as per customer requirements.
The latest agreement between the two also requires UTC Aerospace Systems to provide proximity sensor data concentrators (PSDC) to Boeing. This system is responsible for monitoring various surfaces of the aircraft including interior, exterior and thrust reverser doors as well as tail position. To achieve reduced weight and enhanced reliability and usability the system’s software is integrated within a central computing function that offers a distributed architecture approach.
Systems under last year’s agreement included multiple systems supplied by UTC Aerospace Systems such as electric power generating system, cabin air conditioning and temperature control system, airfoil and cowl ice protection system, and the complete ventilation system suite of fans.
