Defense Overview
Providing more than 160 years of service to the U.S. Navy

Providing more than 160 years of servie to the U.S. NavyIn the early 1950s, teams from EMD, EPD and Target Rock helped design and build systems for the USS Nautilus, the world's first nuclear powered submarine. Engineers at Peerless were responsible for developing the first instrumentation and control microprocessor equipment aboard nuclear submarines.

Curtiss-Wright Flow Control's partnership with the Navy continues today as the leading supplier of mission-critical applications for Nimitz Class aircraft carriers and Virginia Class submarines, as well as next generation Gerald Ford Class CVN-21 carriers.

EPD first supplied the U.S. Navy with a "Worthington" direct-acting steam pump sold in 1847. This was used for boiler feedwater service on the USS Powhatan, a bark-rigged paddle frigate, also known as a side-wheel steamer. The ship was launched by the Norfolk Navy Yard in February 1850 and commissioned in September 1852.

Setting the standard for quality and innovation

Next generation products include the development of an electro-magnetic aircraft launch system and advanced aircraft carrier arresting technology which enable more efficient control systems to capture aircraft landing on the deck of a carrier. CWFC is working to create an advanced power supply for the Army's new electro-magnetic weapon system development program. And it continues to support the entire naval fleet with leading edge pumping, propulsion, valve and control systems and solutions.
