Missile Applications

Meet limited space, low weight, and power requirements


Engineered for limited space, power, and weight requirements

Missile applications typically present unique challenges for electronic systems that must meet limited space, low weight, and power requirements while working reliably in very harsh environments. Curtiss-Wright has decades of experience meeting such needs with dozens of missile programs.

Rugged Instrumentation System Solutions for Applications with Limited Space

This white paper examines the challenges and solutions for implementing a compact data acquisition package, with a particular focus on missiles, and proposes a modular solution to best meet tight space and installation time requirements without compromising system flexibility.

Securing Telemetry Data with Commercial Encryption Standards

As the world realizes that all of our data is at risk of being exploited, organizations are under pressure to protect it, no matter the classification. However, this can be expensive and time-consuming, or limit foreign military sales, depending on the approach. This paper describes strategies for encrypting data-at-rest and in motion, with a particular emphasis on encrypting telemetry data for applications such as flight and missile test.

Meeting Missile Program Upgrade Requirements with Power-Efficient, Future-Proof Transmitters

This case study describes how an organization overcame a number of challenges to successfully meet a missile's upgrades objectives, including increasing the missile’s range, ensuring low-risk transmitter qualification programs, and ensuring there is no transmitter interference with other onboard electronics.


Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure

Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
