High-Performance, Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) Modules

Curtiss-Wright’s open architecture, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), rugged embedded computing solutions process data in real time to support mission-critical functions. We play a key industry role in the establishment of resources and services to ensure that our customers have access to the long lifecycle support required by aerospace and defense programs. We offer unmatched and comprehensive approaches for mitigating obsolescence, blocking the use of counterfeit parts, and developing product roadmaps to ease the integration of future generations of technologies.


Canadian Manufacturing Centre of Excellence

Curtiss-Wright’s Ottawa manufacturing facility has 100,000 square feet of floor space, of which 34,000 is dedicated to production. Our 110 highly-skilled production staff members currently build over 2,500 cards on a monthly basis (the equivalent of over three million component placements each month) in our temperature-, humidity-, and ESD-controlled production area.

Our Ottawa facility allows for a very high volume of product manufacturing on an ongoing basis, which is ideal for addressing anticipated future program production needs. Our Ottawa facility also possesses a Joint Certification Program (DD2345) which provides access to military sensitive Technical Data Packages and the ability to provide design and manufacturing for U.S. programs.
