Design contract success for Phoenix Dynamics

26th July 2011 - 10:36 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Newcastle under Lyme-based Phoenix Dynamics is celebrating the award of a major design contract with the United States Department of Defense.

The contract, which runs until the end of 2012 is for the design, development, prototype and pre-production build of wiring harnesses for various artillery pieces in use by the US army.

The awarding of the contract was in the face of stiff competition from competitors around the world and is a reflection on the trust that the US Department of Defense has in Phoenix Dynamics, which has previously developed ruggedised systems for the US military. The key element of the contract is to improve the reparability and durability of existing harness systems. This will ensure that in the event of accidental or battlefield damage the artillery piece can remain in action for the maximum amount of time.

"Our proven ability to provide full project management that includes design, test and manufacture for customers around the globe played a significant part in our success on this occasion," says Carl Kirk, Sales Manager, Phoenix Dynamics.

"Our reputation in developing ruggedised harnesses to connect artillery pieces to their power supply and fire control units, while providing economic battlefield repair, if required, is gaining considerable interest and this latest contract is testament to that fact."

This reputation is also opening doors in other sectors with aerospace, power generation and motorsports all requiring similar expertise to what Phoenix Dynamics is providing to the world's leading defence agencies and equipment manufacturers.
