PRESCOTT, Ariz., March 7, 2022 — CP Technologies (CPT), a business unit of CP North America, today announced it has partnered with Phenix Solutions, an employee-owned non-traditional defense contractor, to supply rugged expeditionary workstations for use with its heavy lift rotary unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). The Phenix and CPT solutions will be on display at  the HAI Heli Expo, Phenix booth #6019, March 8-10 in Dallas, Texas.

“The partnership with Phenix is a natural fit since given our alignment on using commercial off-the-shelf technologies to build systems that will operate in a variety of harsh conditions,” said Mike McCormack, president and CEO, CP North America. “Expeditionary workstations with high-speed processing capabilities are an indispensable part of the operation of UAS solutions used in a diverse spectrum of military and commercial applications. The lower costs and improved efficiencies CPT can provide are ideal for multi-year programs that require revision control and hardware consistency.”

CPT is supplying Phenix with Tactical Portable Computing Systems for the Phenix Visual Line of Sight Operations line of helicopters that provide versatile vertical take-off and landing capability at its quietest. These UAS solutions significantly lower flyaway and total cost of ownership to both defense and civil operators by using certified and proven Commercial Off-the-Shelf technologies (COTS).

“Our advanced ‘modular off-the-shelf’ coaxial design of UAS solutions deliver enhanced performance, reliability, and sustainability in an efficient and affordable multi-mission package,” said Brian Riese, president, Phenix Solutions. “Our partnership with CPT goes hand-in-hand with our strategy to use certified and proven best-of-breed technologies for any operator wanting to increase earning potential, lower costs, and keep their pilots safe.”
