Le ministère des Armées annonce l'accélération de près de 600 millions d'euros de commandes militaires dans le secteur aéronautique 

Pour soutenir le secteur aéronautique, le ministère des Armées va dégager 600 millions d'euros de commandes par anticipation, notamment pour acquérir trois A330 transformés ultérieurement au profit de l'armée de l'Air. Florence Parly a indiqué également que le ministère des Armées va commander huit hélicoptères Caracal, et que plus de 100 millions d'euros seront mis au service de commandes de drones pour la Marine Nationale. «L'ensemble de ces commandes répond à un besoin de nos armées. Nous allons simplement aller plus vite». «Soutenir l'industrie aéronautique, c'est épauler la croissance française tout entière», déclare Florence Parly.

    Astronics awarded contracts to support Boeing’s MQ-25 unmanned tanker for the U.S. Navy

    ASTRONICS PRESS RELEASE | FEBRUARY 17, 2021 Estimated reading time  3 minutes, 12 seconds. Astronics Corporation (Nasdaq: ATRO), a leading provider of advanced technologies for global aerospace, defense and other mission critical industries, has been awarded contracts by The Boeing Company to supply CorePower® aircraft power distribution units and custom-engineered exterior lighting for the MQ-25 unmanned aerial refueling program. “Our CorePower® Electronic Circuit Breaker Unit (ECBU) technology is ideally suited for use in unmanned aircraft.  This COTS power distribution technology will support the success of the MQ-25 program by providing intelligent control and visibility of the on-board power systems,” said Pete Gundermann, President and CEO of Astronics.  “Additionally, we are proud to bring our exterior lighting expertise for military programs to Boeing on this project.” The CorePower system replaces pilot-operated, thermal mechanical breaker systems with intelligently controlled, solid-state switches to provide safe, reliable performance remotely.  The system planned for the MQ-25 incorporates the use of Astronics’ latest generation ECBU products to create an evenly distributed system at a fraction of the wire weight and increased reliability compared with traditional systems.   Astronics is also currently working with Boeing to design custom lighting for the MQ-25 that to provide for safe operations for flight deck personnel and aid in the aerial refueling process. The MQ-25 is the U.S. Navy’s first operational carrier-based unmanned aircraft and is designed to provide a much-needed refueling capability.  The contract supports Boeing’s engineering and manufacturing development program. “The MQ-25 program is vital because it will help the U.S. Navy to extend the range of the carrier air wing and Boeing and our industry team is all-in on delivering this capability,” said Dave Bujold, Boeing’s MQ-25 program director.  “The work we’re doing is also foundational for the future of Boeing – where we’re building autonomous systems from seabed to space.”   For more information on the CorePower® ECBU technology, visit www.astronics.com/aircraft-power-distribution or Astronics’ aircraft lighting solutions, visit www.astronics.com/aircraft-exterior-lighting.
