Curtiss-Wright has announced an agreement with Teledyne FLIR Defense to supply unmanned systems and integrated solutions to the U.S. nuclear power market and Department of Energy. Systems will include mobile unmanned systems (MUS) such as drones, robots, and submersibles, which play a critical role in industrial and defense applications by automating operations and eliminating the need for humans to perform tasks in hazardous conditions.

“Curtiss-Wright is committed to modernizing plant systems and equipment for the U.S. nuclear fleet and DOE, and this agreement is an important step in expanding our portfolio of unmanned systems technologies,” said Lynn Bamford, president and CEO of Curtiss-Wright. “By partnering with Teledyne FLIR Defense, we are able to leverage our established leadership in the nuclear power generation market and offer our customer base cutting-edge solutions that enable autonomous operations, increase worker safety, and reduce costs for plant operators.”

Curtiss-Wright is one of the leading global suppliers to the nuclear power industry, supporting new reactor construction and providing large light water reactors, advanced reactors and small modular reactors. Teledyne FLIR’s experience in the nuclear market includes a mature install base of ground robotics in several commercial nuclear power plants and DOE sites, as well as international projects.

“We are pleased to be working with Curtiss-Wright to advance the use of unmanned systems in nuclear and other power facilities where they can make a tremendous difference in keeping human operators out of harm’s way and improving efficiencies,” said Tom Frost, vice president of unmanned ground systems at Teledyne FLIR Defense.
