During the early phases of a project, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions can provide on-site product training and product consulting services. We can also support the development of repair, maintenance, and technology refresh strategies for the anticipated service life of a project. In addition to the reliability data that we provide as standard with each new product, if needed, further reliability assessments can also be made for specific environments or operating temperatures. This Failure Modes, Effects and Criticality Analysis (FMECA) can identify the most likely types of failures and their effect upon the product.
A FMECA is used in combination with the reliability analysis to assist in overall system design. It also enables the prediction of future logistics requirements, both in the field and at base depot, to optimize the availability of the equipment in its end-use application. We also offer a full range of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) documentation, repair, and rovisioning recommendations.
Rapid Prototyping, a Curtiss-Wright value-add service, is designed to help accelerate your time to market. Our expertise and experience can be leveraged to fit your specific requirements with device-level integration, application analysis, COTS or Modified COTS (MCOTS) chassis & backplane solutions, and/or system integration. Our Rapid Prototyping service can mitigate your schedule and budgetary risks with quick-turn working prototypes, enabling your team to focus on other critical tasks.
With a wide range of solutions, including fully integrated systems for out of box operation, and chassis, backplane, application troubleshooting, benchmarking, as well as driver porting and interoperability testing, Curtiss-Wright's Rapid Prototyping reduces risk while dramatically accelerating ramp-up time. Contact us to learn how Curtiss-Wright can help you with rapid prototyping solutions that reduce your program risk.
The combination of Curtiss-Wright's breadth of experience and expertise in the delivery of market-leading embedded computing products makes us a one-stop provider for hardware, software, and support service reports. This wealth of knowledge is applied to Quality Reporting services that feed directly into a customer's Performance Based Logistics and Integrated Support Logistics needs.
Services include Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) reports in accordance with MIL-HDBK- 217F Notice 2 reliability prediction models for Integrated Circuits, Electromagnetics and Interconnect, and using the DoD Reliability Analysis Center's PRISM RACRates for Passives, Discretes, and Digital Oscillators.
MTBF analysis can be expanded to encompass FMECA and root cause analysis.
Training and Consulting Services
Curtiss-Wright Training Services deliver custom-developed training courses to help increase development staff productivity and shorten the overall design phase. Training courses ranging from an introductory level to speciallized topics are available.
