Curtiss-Wright Drive Technology

This video discusses the creation of an electromechanical system that has to fulfill three requirements: move heavy materials, work precisely, and operate under high safety requirements.

Meet key program requirements with modular motion control solutions

Curtiss-Wright's "building block" approach to aiming and stabilization systems delivers the target and turret stabilization needed for the critical precision drive systems onboard many of today's combat vehicles. In this case study, learn how Rheinmetall Defence Australia partnered with us to meet the needs of Land 400 Phase 2 with a custom, high-precision motion control solution.

Achieve faster, more precise control of mission-critical defense systems

The number of complex defense systems that can benefit from a ruggedized, scalable motion control solution for greater control and increased stability is almost endless. Here are just seven.
