CPI Aerostructures received an order from Sikorsky Aircraft to make outboard wing assemblies for maritime patrol aircraft, the company said Wednesday.
Financial terms weren't disclosed.
CPI will provide wing assemblies for two aircraft, plus a separate wing designated for structural testing. They're expected to be delivered later this year.
The marine patrol aircraft, the SA-338B Shadow Hawk, is a two or three-seat aircraft designed to fly slowly along a coastline at an altitude of about 1,500 to 2,000 feet.
It's used for border protection, intelligence collection, fisheries patrol, environmental monitoring and search and rescue. Sikorsky is marketing the aircraft to the United States Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security.
Sikorsky Aircraft is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.
