Reliable and Flexible Data Capture is Key
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, with changing requirements that can cause significant delays. Reliably capturing data is essential to avoid expensive additional flights or the loss of months of program data. Curtiss-Wright provides a comprehensive range of cutting-edge COTS and customizable systems that have been engineered to meet these challenges. When you use our systems, you automatically get an expert partner with decades of experience that can extend your system architect/design team to deliver a future-proof total system solution.
This white paper discusses the challenges hypersonic vehicle testing faces and proposes how flight test instrumentation (FTI) can aid in overcoming them.
Organization Successfully Deploys Total System Solution from Data Acquisition to Real-Time Analysis and Post-Test Validation
An experienced designer and manufacturer used multiple hardware vendors for their FTI system for a new jet. Learn the challenges they encountered and how they overcame them.
Meeting Missile Program Upgrade Requirements with Power-Efficient, Future-Proof Transmitters
This case study describes how an organization overcame challenges to successfully meet a missile's upgrade objectives, including increasing the missile’s range, ensuring a low-risk transmitter qualification program, and reducing transmitter interference with other onboard electronics.
Exploring the Telemetry Network Standard (TmNS)
Flight test instrumentation has changed dramatically over the last decade. The increased data and desire to access more control over onboard systems from the ground has led to significant recent interest in using a bi-directional, Ethernet-like telemetry protocol. This white paper presents an overview of the Telemetry Network Standard (TmNS), its core benefits, and a comparison to 5G.
