For rugged Ethernet Switch and Router technology used in Afghan FMS Knight Ryder Program

ASHBURN, Va. — Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division has received a contract from Sierra Nevada Corporation to supply its COTS-based rugged Ethernet Switch and Router technology for use aboard Pilatus PC-12 Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) equipped aircraft under the Knight Ryder program. Under the agreement, Curtiss-Wright will provide Sierra Nevada Corporation with its Parvus DuraMAR® 5915 router and Parvus DuraNET® 3000 switch products. The initial contract is valued at approximately $530,000. Under the agreement, shipments began in July 2013 and are scheduled to continue until early 2014.

“We are pleased to have been selected by Sierra Nevada Corporation to provide our cost-effective, proven Cisco-based Ethernet Switch and Router technology for use in the important Knight Ryder program,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “The selection of our SWaP-optimized rugged subsystems will help deliver standardized ISR hardware configuration and operating software aboard small, payload-limited aircraft such as the Pilatus PC-12.”

The Curtiss-Wright router and switch products will contribute to an ISR suite used on Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, and will be used to communicate intelligence sensor and video data internal to the aircraft, as well as to ground forces and command and control centers.

About the Parvus DuraMAR 5915
The Parvus DuraMAR 5915 is a rugged COTS Cisco® IOS-managed mobile router integrated with Cisco’s 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) card in an ultra-rugged chassis optimized for harsh military and civil vehicle / aircraft installations. An ideal solution for IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness applications, including those seeking a migration path for legacy Cisco 3200 (3230 / 3250 / 3270)-based router subsystems, the Parvus DuraMAR 5915 features dual WAN uplinks and is available as either a standalone 5-port network router or with an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch for a total of 19 Ethernet ports.

About the Parvus DuraNET 3000
The Parvus DuraNET 3000 is a ruggedized version of Cisco Systems’ IE-3000 industrial Ethernet switch, specifically hardened for use in demanding military/civil IP networking technology refresh applications. This fully managed network switch delivers the security, advanced Quality of Service (QoS), high availability, and manageability that customers expect from Cisco IOS-based switching technology, including optional Layer 3 IP Routing services. Designed with mechanical enhancements to support deployment of data, video, and voice services in extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, humidity, as well as exposure to dust, water, and EMI/EMC environments, the unit requires no active cooling, is completely sealed, and provides interfaces over MIL-C-38999 style connectors.

The Defense Solutions division will manufacture the products covered by this agreement at its Parvus business unit facility located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The products will be shipped to Sierra Nevada Corporation in Centennial, Colo.
