09:01 EDTXLSExelis wins interim redesign contract worth $15.3M for Navy's tactical jammer
Exelis has received a U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center contract valued at $15.3M to perform essential sustainment work on the ALQ-99 tactical jamming system. The ALQ-99 is used on the Navyís EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft. The technology will also be provided to the Australian government through a Foreign Military Sales program, the first time the ALQ-99 has been made available to an international ally. Under the contract, Exelis will redesign three modules -- components of the ALQ-99ís universal exciter upgrade shop-replaceable assembly -- to extend the service life of the Navyís principal standoff jammer. As part of the redesign, Exelis will replace legacy application-specific electronic components with modern field-programmable technology, enhancing reliability and the systemís ability to adapt to changing mission needs. The work will also include extensive qualification testing to ensure that the aircraft can operate successfully in challenging environments.

17:06 EDTUTXUnited Technologies announce changes to aerospace leadership
United Technologies announced it will streamline its aerospace organization and leadership structure to provide greater focus on serving customers. Alain Bellemare, president and CEO of UTC Propulsion & Aerospace Systems, or PAS, has elected to leave the company at the end of the month. He will continue to serve as a consultant to UTC. As a result of Bellemare's decision and the successful integration of Goodrich Corporation, UTC is streamlining its aerospace operations by eliminating the PAS organization. Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems, both formerly under the PAS structure, will continue as stand-alone business units. As a result of this organizational change, Pratt & Whitney president Paul Adams will report directly to United Technologies CEO Gregory Hayes, as will Dave Gitlin, who has been promoted to president of UTC Aerospace Systems, from his former position as leader of that company's Aircraft Systems segment.
10:29 EDTUTXRockwell Collins outlook assumes zero for Learjet 85, says Wells Fargo
After Bombardier (BDRBF) announced it will 'pause' development of its all-composite Learjet-85 business jet due to weak demand, Wells Fargo points out that Rockwell Collins (COL) supplies the Learjet 85's avionics. Wells finds it unclear if Bombardier's decision will trigger any impairment for Rockwell, but notes the company already stated its FY15 revenue guidance assumes zero for Learjet 85. The firm adds United Technologies unit Pratt & Whitney Canada supplies the Learjet 85's engines while LMI Aerospace (LMIA) takes part in the plane's engineering. Wells estimates about 3% of LMI's recent sales have been tied to Learjet 85 development.
