Jun 15, 2015

PARIS AIR SHOW, Paris, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems offers a comprehensive suite of electric system products for commercial and military aircraft. The aircraft on display, and scheduled to fly, at the Paris Air Show represent this breadth, including those from Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Dassault, Embraer, Gulfstream, Mitsubishi and the U.S. Department of Defense. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

UTC Aerospace Systems is uniquely capable of supplying all forms of electric power generation, including new constant frequency generation systems for such aircraft as the Boeing 777X and Embraer E-JET E2, and derivative constant frequency generation systems for Airbus A320neo and Boeing 737 MAX, based on our proven systems for the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737, respectively. We also provide new variable frequency systems for in-service aircraft like the Airbus A350XWB and Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and aircraft in development or certification, such as the Comac C919, Global 7000/8000, Irkut MC-21 and Bombardier CSeries; as well as the world's most advanced high voltage DC systems for aircraft like the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II and F-22 Raptor.

UTC Aerospace Systems is advancing the state of the art of next-generation more electric aircraft, building upon our solid state power distribution systems and advanced, high power density motor drive technologies now flying on aircraft like the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

"Because we supply that full product breadth, we can design and provide the best systems solution for any type of aircraft architecture, required by manufacturers worldwide," said Tim White, president, Electric Systems.

The company has been driving innovation in aircraft power generation for 70 years – the company's first generator, for the B-36 bomber, was developed in 1945. This sustained commitment to advancing state of the art and robust technologies yields enviable in-service reliability.

"Today, our electric systems' service reliability roughly equates to driving your automobile one million miles, needing nothing but an oil change," said White. "That level of quality and performance is critical to support the needs of our worldwide base of OEM and airline customers."

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries.  UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base, with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.

United Technologies Corp., based in Hartford, Connecticut, provides high-technology systems and services to the building and aerospace industries. To learn more about UTC, visit the website at www.utc.com or follow the company on Twitter: @UTC.
