Lockheed, Moog Develop JLTV-Towed Hellfire Launcher
22 October 2013
For years, the US Army has been looking for ways to launch Hellfire missiles from ground stations, a capability that would give infantrymen a new lethal tool to use when they might not be able to call in fire or get air support from aviation assets.
To meet that need, Lockheed Martin has partnered with Moog to develop the Common Hellfire Package (CHP), a modular integrated weapon system that will enable Hellfire shots from a variety of land, air and sea platforms — including being towed behind a Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).

TUEV Rheinland Certification for Safety on Wind Turbines
31 January 2013
Validating that Moog designs achieve Performance Level D for the wind turbine feathering safety function, Moog receiving the TUEV Rheinland Certification for Safety on Wind Turbines takes into account the feathering safety function alters the blade pitch at the rotor hub to minimize the torque applied by the wind, avoiding excessive speed of the turbine. As a result, the pitch servo drive is classified as a safety-critical component.
