New Technology Supports Critical US Navy Defense Platforms

Curtiss-Wright will provide propulsion valves, pumps and advanced instrumentation and control systems for the US Navy’s Virginia-class nuclear powered attack submarine, Columbia-class submarine and Ford-class aircraft carrier programs under new contracts valued in excess of $220 million.

The awards were received from Bechtel Plant Machinery, Inc. (BPMI) and General Dynamics Electric Boat to support ship construction, spare parts and submarine back-fit procurements.

“Curtiss-Wright is proud to have been awarded these important naval defense contracts, building upon our long-standing relationship with the US Nuclear Navy and reflecting our ongoing support of these critical naval defense platforms, which continue to receive strong Congressional support,” said Lynn M. Bamford, Chair and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “We look forward to delivering the most advanced, reliable and vital technologies and remain well-positioned to benefit from the continued expansion of our US naval fleet.”

Curtiss-Wright is performing this work at its facilities in New York and Pennsylvania within the company’s Defense Electronics and Naval & Power Segments. Engineering and manufacturing have begun and will continue through 2026.
