Curtiss-Wright Controls in Santa Clarita was awarded an $8 million contract by Northrop Grumman Corporation for production upgrades to the Radar Airborne Signal Processing Solution – RASP - for use in the U.S. Air Force Joint Surveillance and Target Attack Radar System - Joint Stars - program.

The company said the estimated value of the order, over the lifetime of the program, is $22 million. Under the contract, the award first began in November, 2012.

The program is expected to continue through 2015.

The Joint Stars program supports air-to-ground battle management and surveillance operations. The RASP system performs radar signal processing, enabling the Air Force to process data that results in the ability to locate targets.

“We are very proud to have been selected by Northrop Grumman to supply our rugged embedded processing subsystem technology to support the Joint STARS aircraft’s advanced radar signal processing needs,” said Tom Quinly, president of Curtiss-Wright Controls.

“This contract award reflects our success, including over three years of development and qualification testing, in significantly reducing the overall weight and size of the earlier RSP, while increasing system performance.”
