Rapid Prototyping Avionics: AviBlocks

Today’s Avionics developers are increasingly challenged by accelerated development cycles, parallel development of multiple systems, integration of “compatible” LRUs and the inevitable evolution of requirements. Curtiss-Wright are offering “AviBlocks” as one common architecture, addressing multiple Avionics requirements and a Joint Development Approach that supports developers through prototyping, definition, qualification and long-tail production.

Avionics developers who have the ability rapidly prototype and adapt to evolving requirements, are able to quickly validate multiple design iterations in hardware, dramatically reducing program risks and costs. This is possible with the “AviBlocks” development approach, which leverages off-the-shelf Avionics Modular Building Blocks.

AviBlocks technology is an evolution of our industry leading Acra KAM-500 data acquisition system.
Within the AviBlocks framework, the extensive collection of KAM-500 interface modules act as “Avionics building Blocks” which allow for 

  • Rapid prototyping of new systems
  • Low risk development of production units

The new AviBlocks paradigm retains the adaptability of the KAM-500 system allowing unique specification FDAUs, MRSs, DMUs, DCUs, and RIUs to be realized without the costs typically associated with new bespoke developments.
