highly engineered solutions: built rugged from the ground up to perform reliably in harsh conditions

Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions is well recognized around the world as an industry leading supplier of innovative, highly engineered solutions. Our rugged and reliable products are found in many of today’s most critical air, ground, naval and industrial applications. 


In the Air
Curtiss-Wright products are deployed in a wide array of today's most demanding airborne platforms and applications, Actuators, sensors, pilot controls, data concentrators, recorders and COTS modules are just some examples of the numerous solutions that we provide for fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, UAVs and space vehicles. Whether enduring the intense heat of a desert tarmac, the sub-zero temperatures encountered during high-altitude flight, or the extreme shock and vibration of spacecraft launch, our products deliver optimal performance under the harshest conditions.

On the Ground
Curtiss-Wright has a long, well-established history as as a leading supplier in support of the critical capabilities required by modern ground defense platforms. From in-vehicle networking, mission computing, and fire control processors, to complete turret drive stabilization and ammunition handling systems, we design and deliver systems and components needed to ensure that ground vehicles have the technical edge in today’s battlefield.

At Sea
Defense Solutions products support a vast array of ship building programs. In fact, Curtiss-Wright technology is serving today on every U.S. Navy submarine and aircraft carrier. We provide pumping, power, and propulsion to the most advanced submarines and aircraft carriers. On shipboard, our helicopter handling and storage systems enable the deployment of rotor-wing platforms in the harshest sea conditions. 

In Industry
Because of their reliability and use of leading-edge COTS technologies, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions products are frequently used in industrial applications that require a rugged, dependable solution. In one example, our technology is used to stablize cameras for high-speed imaging and high voltage cable inspection.
