The components produced by the partnership will be used for future aircraft by the INVENT program.

As part of the agreement, UTC Aerospace will design, develop and test actuators to improve energy, power and thermal management.

The technology will be targeted at primary flight control actuation for the next generation of tactical fighters and air mobility transport systems.

UTC has previously worked with Boeing as a systems supplier for Boeing’s Dreamliner 787 program.
