Moog unit awarded Boeing pact

June 18, 2013 Updated Jun 18, 2013 at 7:16 AM EDT

The Aircraft Group at Moog Inc. has been awarded a contract by Boeing for the design, development and qualification of the Weapons Bay Actuation System for the F-15 Silent Eagle.

Terms were not disclosed.

The Moog system is part of the new conformal weapons bay that operates multiple door surfaces and provides other actuation functions. Each system includes the main controller, electric power drives for both rotary and linear actuation, rotary mechanical drive trains (rotary geared actuators, angled gearboxes and torque tubes), and an energy management sub-system.

The Boeing F-15 Silent Eagle was developed in response to international customer requirements for a lower cost, higher-performance fighter aircraft.

Moog (NYSE: MOG), based in East Aurora, designs and manufactures precision control components and systems for the defense and aerospace industry.
