Deals like this one don’t come along everyday. Satcom maker EMS Technologies announced a large price reduction for its HSD-128 high-speed data satcom terminal at the NBAA show last month, from a suggested retail price of $182,750 to a new list price of $135,000. But buyers had better act soon–the almost $50,000 drop in price is effective only through the end of the year, according to the Ottawa, Ontario company.
Sikorsky Aircraft has selected Eaton Corp. (Stand No. P39) to design and manufacture the primary hydraulic power generation system for the U.S. Marine Corp’s new heavy-lift CH-53K helicopter.
During the development phase of the program, which runs through 2014, Eaton will provide the systems and components for five to 10 shipsets, in addition to a number of test sets. The Marines expect to buy more than 156 CH-53Ks.
The eNfusion cabin network accelerator from EMS Satcom appears to be gaining a following. The Ottawa company reports that it has delivered more than a dozen in the past several months, and Jet Aviation installed the first full eNfusion in a Falcon 900 at its West Palm Beach completion and refurb facility.
