CHARLOTTE, N.C. - PARIS AIR SHOW - UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Airbus to supply a common fuel gauging system for its single-aisle aircraft. UTC Aerospace Systems currently provides the full fuel gauging system for the Airbus A321 aircraft. This selection adds the A319, A320 and A320neo platforms. Initial production hardware deliveries will begin in Q1 of 2014. The system was designed and will be produced by the Sensors Integrated Systems team in Vergennes, Vermont, USA. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corporation (NYSE: UTX).

The fuel gauging system provides improved performance and reliability over earlier systems, and includes common fuel probes, indicators, and a fuel level sensing control unit across the Airbus single-aisle models. Use of a common system will provide value for Airbus during manufacturing and simplified operational maintenance for its customers.

"UTC Aerospace Systems was selected for this program because we offered a comprehensive fuel measurement solution Airbus could incorporate into their single-aisle aircraft family," said Jan Mathiesen, vice president, Sensors & Integrated Systems. "Our focus on customer needs, combined with our lean product development process will allow us to provide Airbus and its customers exceptional products and systems for the life of this program."

The Airbus single-aisle aircraft common fuel system has successfully completed fit check and system demonstration tests. Critical design review for the new system will be conducted in July 2013.

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries. UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.

United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Connecticut, is a diversified company providing high technology products and services to the building and aerospace industries.
