Breeze-Eastern to Design Hydraulic Hoist Controller for USCG H-65s

LAS VEGAS, Nev., March 4, 2013 – The United States Coast Guard has contracted with Breeze-Eastern Corporation (AMEX: BZC) to design a new hydraulic hoist controller for its MH-65 search and rescue helicopters. Breeze-Eastern, the aerospace industry’s only dedicated hoist and winch specialist expects a production contract to follow the $1 million design program.

The new controller will replace a 25-year-old legacy system. Although functionality will not change, reliability and performance improvements will be part of the modernized designs.
“Supporting the U.S. Coast Guard’s lifesaving work is a point of pride for Breeze-Eastern,” said company President and Chief Executive Officer Brad Pedersen. “So modernizing this critical rescue support equipment is an important and exciting opportunity.”
Breeze-Eastern Corporation is the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-performance lifting and pulling devices for helicopters, military cargo aircraft, and other aerospace/defense platforms, including rescue hoists, winches and cargo hooks, and weapons-lifting systems.
