About Us


Who We Are

At Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions, we have one simple goal. To help you succeed.

On this site, you will find valuable information about our capabilities, products, and services. In their design, and resulting from the applications and programs they support, many of these solutions are complex. That's also true of the platforms, programs, and missions we support. We try very hard not to let that complexity get in the way of ensuring our mission and core value stay quite simple. In other words, to support your program, our solutions are engineered to help you succeed.

What We Do

Curtiss-Wright's Defense Solution division is a trusted, proven leader, delivering superior products and services that meet the defense and aerospace industries' toughest challenges with best-in-class value. Our solutions address air, ground, and naval defense applications, and are focused on growth segments with a high demand for advanced technology, enhanced safety, security, and performance. As a leading Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) solutions supplier for battlefield platforms and communication systems, we are uniquely positioned to benefit from the DoD's commitment to maintaining technological superiority on the battlefield.

Our products include future-proof open system architectures, communications and processing systems for the tactical edge, flight test and operational aerospace instrumentation, storage and recorders, enclosures and consoles, and stabilization and motion control solutions. For the U.S. Navy, the division supplies MIL-SPEC integrated subsystems and Naval Nuclear Instrumentation and Control solutions. Avionics solutions include flight data recorders, and aircraft sensor data management products and services. As an industry leader, Defense Solutions takes an active role in industry standards organizations, serving, for example, as a Principal Member of The Open Group SOSA Consortium and as a member of the VITA Standards Organization's Board of Directors.

How We've Grown

Our strategy at Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions is to drive customer success by leveraging our best-in-class solutions and our world-class engineering team. At times, however, engineered to succeed means adding to our portfolio of innovative technologies through acquisition. We are constantly searching, through our Mergers & Acquisitions team, for organizations that complement our engineering culture and add to our portfolio of solutions to meet customer needs. We support our customer's success by delivering what we have today and an eye toward innovations you may require tomorrow.
