Kaman Aerosystems (Kaman) has secured a contract extension for Northrop Grumman’s E-2D Advanced Hawkeye and C-2A Greyhound Outer Wing Panel Program

The extension is for an additional three years (2015-2018) with an expected value of over $11 million for the fabrication and supply of sheet metal and extrusion parts to CPI Aerostructures, Inc. (CPI).

“The E-2D Advanced Hawkeye is an important U.S. Navy production program and Kaman is proud to be a part of it,” stated Will Zmyndak, vice president and general manager for Kaman Aerosystems’ Integrated Structures and Metallics business unit.

All parts delivered by Kaman are manufactured at its Kaman Aerosystems facility in Jacksonville, Florida. These sheet metal and extrusion-fabricated parts are integral to support the assembly of the E-2D’s and C-2A’s outer wing panels. CPI kits the parts provided by Kaman and others and then provides the parts to Northrop Grumman Corp.

This award continues Kaman’s long-term relationship with CPI on the E-2D and C-2A Outer Wing Panel program that dates back to 2008.
