Strategic Technology Systems, Inc. Awarded Harpoon Weapons Interface Unit Contract.
The WIU is intended for use in three launcher configurations without modification: ship, submarine and coastal defense platforms.
The WIU's internal controller is based on hardware and software recently developed by Strategic Technology for use in its new F/A-18 Interference Blanker Unit (IBU), now being flight tested on a F/A-18F at China Lake. The WIU software is written in Ada and will be entirely reprogrammable via its MIL-STD-1553 data bus.
Edward J. Klinsport, Strategic Technology's President and CEO said, "We are extremely happy that the technology developed for one Boeing program (F/A-18 IBU) can be ported to a different platform on another Boeing program, thus reducing risk and saving significant development costs."
Strategic Technology Systems, Inc. is a diversified technology-driven company specializing in weapons management, electronic warfare, airborne data acquisition, secure communications and space qualified systems for defense and commercial applications.
