A Raytheon Technologies business has placed an order with CPI Aerostructures to produce structural assemblies on an ‘undisclosed’ platform.

CPI did not disclose financial terms or other details of the order from Raytheon Missiles & Defense.

CPI Aero president and CEO Douglas McCrosson said: “Last year, we were honoured to receive Raytheon Technologies’ Premier Supplier Award in recognition of our work on the Next Generation Jammer Mid Band pod.

“This new contract demonstrates both Raytheon Missiles & Defense’s continued trust in CPI Aero as a critical Tier 1 supplier and commitment to utilising top-performing supply chain partners across their enterprise.

“Missiles and other autonomous aircraft systems are strategic areas of growth for CPI Aero.

“Our reputation for excellence in manufacturing some of the world’s most advanced pod-based airborne electronic systems provides confidence that we can be successful in this adjacent market.”

According to CPI, the order is a ‘sole source follow-on order’. The company expects to start delivery of the structural assemblies from this year.

CPI Aero manufactures structural assemblies for fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, as well as airborne intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) and electronic warfare pod systems for national defence markets.

The company serves as the prime contractor to the US Department of Defence, primarily the USAF.

In June, CPI secured purchase orders from Boeing under a previously announced contract to supply structural assemblies for the A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft.
