Curtiss-Wright will provide turret drive stabilization technology for the weapon system onboard Indonesia's new Combat Boat. The stabilisation technology was selected by John Cockerill Defense (JCD), which is supplying the weapon systems for the boat to the Indonesian Ministry of Defense.

Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright will supply John Cockerill Defense with its scalable Turret Drive Servo System (TDSS) to provide the aiming and stabilisation functionalities of the Combat Boat’s Cockerill® 3030 series weapons system.

“This exciting naval platform will represent the first shipboard deployment of our industry-leading high precision, modular TDSS solution,” said Chris Wiltsey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions. “Proven in ground vehicles around the world, TDSS is a highly rugged robust stabilisation system ideal for use in harsh environments on land or at sea.”

The Combat Boat, which features both manned and unmanned onboard weapons systems, will enable the Indonesian MoD to quickly respond to piracy threats in its territorial waters.

Curtiss-Wright’s TDSS will deliver target location accuracy and precise turret stabilization with the flexibility required by system integrators to define and deploy exact solutions.
