Carriage, Stream, Tow, and Recovery System (CSTRS)
CSTRS is the deployment system designed by EVC’s parent company, Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC), for use with the MH-60S helicopter to support a variety of sensors that seek and neutralize maritime mine threats. CTC has served as the prime contractor on the U.S. Navy Organic Airborne Mine Countermeasures CSTRS program since the program’s inception in 1999. EVC is the prime contractor for the manufacture of CSTRS units, the provider of all spare parts, and the contractor performing all repair work on existing systems. Initiated as a feasibility study, CSTRS has grown into a highly-successful, major program, due in large part to our innovative initial design concepts that integrated safety aspects through every step of development. Team EVC continues to support the CSTRS program from engineering refinements through logistics and training support, including providing both onsite and distance support for testing conducted in a variety of locations, in addition to the manufacturing of full CSTRS units and related Spares and Repairs.
ACES Ejection Seat
The military’s advanced concept ejection seat, ACES II®, is one of the most successful aircrew escape systems in U.S. Air Force history and is credited with saving more than 456 lives since it was introduced in 1976. With more than 8,000 seats delivered to date, the ACES II is currently used on F-15, F-16, B-1B, B-2, A-10, F-117 and F-22 aircraft. Using the strengths of the ACES II as a foundation, Goodrich Aircraft Interiors and CTC developed the next-generation ACES 5 seat for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). The new seat was optimized to enhance safety and ergonomics for aircrew, reduce maintenance downtime, and improve structural performance at a reduced system weight—all within a challenging time constraint of 14 months!
