A comprehensive lifecycle management strategy is the key to safeguarding programs and mitigating the challenges associated with leveraging COTS technology for long-term mission-critical systems. Curtiss-Wright's Continuum Lifecycle Services help identify and reduce the risk of COTS component obsolescence. They also provide control over product configuration changes when required, and extend the availability of product builds and repairs to meet program demands. Read more about the types of lifecycle services available.

Proactively protecting the lifecycle of your aerospace or defense program and technology upfront can significantly reduce long term maintenance costs and improve your return on investment (ROI), resulting in product and financial sustainability. We offer Industry-leading lifecycle services, including longevity of supply (LOS) and longevity of repair (LOR) for our COTS boards and systems.
