Parvus Corporation today announced it has been awarded a contract by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics to develop and produce a new electronics power management module for the F/A-22 Raptor aircraft as part of its Communications, Navigation, and Identification (CNI) system.
"With this new award from Lockheed, Parvus continues to build on prior successes serving the F-22 program and other defense initiatives," said Parvus Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Clark Roundy. "The initial $1.4 million contract calls for Parvus to deliver prototype units later this year. Once prototyping and initial production units are in operation, we anticipate significant follow-on production to support the entire fleet of existing and future F/A-22 Raptor aircraft."
Lockheed looked to Parvus for the solution because its agile engineering model facilitates the rapid design and testing of the power management module. Once completed, this subsystem will deliver redundant, fail-safe power in all situations to critical encryption/decryption equipment, and promises to save hundreds of man-hours per month in maintenance time while dramatically increasing mission-readiness.
For more than two decades Parvus has been providing wireless networking technology, vehicle monitoring and control, display and imaging systems, data recording equipment, rugged color displays, and power conditioning systems to military and industrial OEMs. In addition to multiple electronics subsystems onboard the F-22, Parvus has produced board-level and system-level solutions for the F-15, F-14, EA-6B, E4-B, T-38, QF-4, B1-B, 727, and many other airframes.
