CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 20, 2013

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With key positions on nearly
every aircraft flying today, UTC Aerospace Systems will exhibit a range of
products on booth 3F19 at the Avalon Air Show in Victoria, Australia from
February 28 to March 3. Products on display will span military and civil
markets and offer critical benefits such as enhanced safety, increased
precision and extended situational awareness.  UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit
of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The Vireo^™ unmanned aerial system (UAS) will make its Australian debut at the
show. The company's Vireo^™ and Optio^™ UAS are applicable to a wide variety
of markets and offer low-cost, effective and flexible surveillance from a
variety of sensors including electro optical and infra-red.  These systems
deliver actionable data to law enforcement, government agencies, agriculture
producers and first responders. 

Also on display on the UTC Aerospace systems stand will be:

  o The DB-110 real-time, digital, tactical reconnaissance solution that
    provides long-range, dual-band EO/IR imaging sensor and fixed and mobile
    intelligence exploitation systems.  The day/night sensor is suitable for
    use on fast-jets, large UAVs and business jets.  Multiple countries
    worldwide have already selected the DB-110 for their operations.
  o The Intelligence Exploitation System (IES), in wide use with both NATO and
    other countries.  As the core ground station, the IES ingests data from
    multiple sensors, (including the DB-110 sensor), disseminating the
    resultant fused intelligence rapidly to relevant personnel.
  o Stabilized gimbal technology - used to support force protection for
    helicopters, fixed wing aircraft and small UAVs.
  o The TERPROM^® digital terrain system is a software-based system that
    successfully blends and interprets the inputs of a diverse array of
    sensors to provide the aircraft pilot and crew with full situational
    awareness, enabling them to fly far more safely and effectively - even in
    areas where GPS is not available. It is in use with 14 nations worldwide
    on over 5,000 aircraft.
  o A range of micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS)-based inertial
    measurement units (IMU) and integrated inertial navigation/GPS systems. 
    These extremely small, rugged and lightweight units deliver proven,
    consistent, precision guidance with low manufacturing costs and swift
    production start-up times to a wide variety of weapons and platforms,
    including smaller munitions.
  o The company's boltless wheel and DURACARB^® carbon brake system now being
    delivered for the C-130 military transport aircraft.  The proprietary
    DURACARB^® carbon material provides longer life, higher performance and
    lower cost of ownership than traditional steel braking systems. Boltless
    aircraft wheels employ a lock-ring design which substantially lowers
    maintenance time and cost and reduces parts count when compared to
    traditional bolted aircraft wheels.
