UK-based Cobham Mission Systems has received a $2.65m oxygen concentrator follow-on order from Northrop Grumman Corporation for the Navy E-2D Advanced Hawkeye, an Airborne Command and Control Aircraft (ACC).

The order is the second lot of a multi-year production contract for the delivery of oxygen concentrators for the platform.

“The award of this multi-year extension contract in support of the unique mission capabilities of the E-2D, exemplifies our commitment to the continued success of the platform and supports our strategy of providing world class expertise in aircrew life support systems to the warfighter across a diverse range of platforms,” said Jason Apelquist, Senior Vice-President of Business Development & Strategy at Cobham Mission Systems.

With pilot safety as a core business, Cobham continues to invest in developing next generation technology to advance pilot protection by meeting individual physiological demands of oxygen.

Cobham is a leader in providing global military oxygen life support systems with installations on many mission critical aircraft.
