COTS Data Acquisition for Launchers, Re-Entry Vehicles, and Satellites

Space COTS

Space applications typically put considerable stress on electronic systems due to the harsh environmental conditions and in particular because of the effects of radiation. Mitigating against these effects can be expensive but increasing commercial pressures are putting a focus on keeping costs to a minimum for space missions. Using COTS systems is a great way to lower costs as bespoke systems are generally very expensive and inflexible.  


Flexible Systems for Challenging Requirements

Curtiss-Wright has a well-proven range of space data acquisition systems with Space COTS, radiation-tolerant COTS systems and rad-hard options. By combining COTS with a space-qualified approach, significant savings can be realized while meeting the needs of the mission.
