Triumph Group Inc., which has major manufacturing operations in Connecticut, has won a $77 million federal defense contract to produce digital electronic control units in West Hartford for certain U.S. Army aircraft.

Triumph, of Berwyn, Pa., on Thursday afternoon said the Defense Logistics Agency, a combat agency of the U.S. Department of Defense, awarded the five-year contract to its integrated systems operation to service the Army's entire UH-60 Black Hawk and AH-64 Apache fleet.

Triumph's West Hartford-based engine and control business at 1 Charter Oak Blvd., will produce about 3,100 of the digital-control units.

The contract will allow the Army to complete upgrades to the "highly utilized fleets," also providing additional engine control capability to the units, the company said.

Triumph first received the logistics contract in 2013 as part of its participation in the Army's Universal Control Technology Program. Since then, Triumph has provided 6,000-plus control units for the Apache, Black Hawk, Jayhawk and Seahawk aircraft fleet used by the Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.

Founded in 1993, the company says it designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs and overhauls aerospace and defense systems, components and structures to service the global aviation market.

Triumph also has a mechanical solutions site in Windsor.
