PARIS AIR SHOW, Paris, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Already an established leader in aircraft power systems prior to the July 2012 merger of Hamilton Sundstrand and Goodrich, today's UTC Aerospace Systems is a leading systems integrator utilizing more electric aircraft (MEA) technologies across a variety of aircraft platforms. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).
UTC Aerospace Systems is leading the industry in the development of more electric technologies for the next generation of aircraft. "Our state-of-the art, MEA systems are in-service today with the Boeing 787's electric system, electrically-driven environmental control, associated high power motor controls, auxiliary power and electric braking systems, as well as electrically powered actuation on the Airbus A380," said Gail Baker, vice president, Aerospace Customers & Business Development. "These systems have already yielded significant aircraft weight and fuel burn reductions, and improved reliability and manufacturability."
UTC Aerospace Systems' more electric capabilities have been honed through years of systems integration experience, significant development and integration roles on recent MEA programs and additional experience from hundreds of millions of hours in-service every year. We are actively building on this foundation to develop the next generation of more electric technologies.
"The power of United Technologies' systems integration capability was also demonstrated with the selection of our integrated propulsion package (IPP) for the Embraer E-Jet E2 PurePower PW1000G Geared Turbofan™ high by-pass ratio engines, with our sister company Pratt & Whitney," said Baker. "This IPP system includes our nacelles, which feature a 360-degree acoustically smooth inlet and contribute to the engines' 50 percent noise reduction."
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.
