Curtiss-Wright Showcases Industry-Leading Flight Test Instrumentation Hardware and Software Solutions at International Telemetering Conference (ITC) 2023

FTI solutions on display will include a compact TSPI unit, a TmNS-compatible bi-directional RF communication system, a compact and modular all-in-one telepack, and real-time FFT processing for telemetry bandwidth optimization

 

International Telemetering Conference (ITC), Las Vegas, Nevada (Booth #925) – October 24, 2023 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions Division, a leading supplier of flight test instrumentation (FTI) solutions engineered for success, will demonstrate its latest fully integrated FTI system solutions at the International Telemetering Conference (ITC), October 24-26, 2023. During the technical sessions of the conference, Curtiss-Wright subject matter experts will present several technical papers that cover a broad range of FTI topics. 

“Curtiss-Wright leads the flight test instrumentation industry in supplying comprehensive, reliable, and flexible solutions,” said Brian Perry, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions Division. “Flight test programs are complex, with ever-increasing demands for more data. Any delay or unplanned extra flight adds cost and increases the risk of schedule slips. Our leading technologies meet the need for more data, while our fully integrated system approach mitigates the risk of delays by ensuring the entire FTI technology chain works together.  This provides our customers with a complete, proven, and future-proof system solution from a single trusted supplier.”

Live In-Booth FTI Solution Demonstrations 

At ITC, Curtiss-Wright’s booth will feature several live demonstrations of advanced FTI technologies, including:

  • TmNS air to ground system solution: This demonstration highlights QoS features, data on demand, data slice retrieval, and obtaining TSPI data. 
  • Tactical time-space position information (TSPI) acquisition and recording: The highly accurate small form factor nTTU-2600 unit will demonstrate its TSPI acquisition and recording capabilities.
  • Miniature Airborne Telemeter System (MATS): This modular telepack solution includes encryption and transmitter modules in one complete system.
  • MnACQ-2700 data acquisition and encoding: This demonstration of Curtiss-Wright’s new MnACQ product family features CH10 UTH and TmNS support and a new high-speed bus acquisition module.
  • Axon / ADAU data acquisition and recording: The demonstration includes recorder, CAN-FD, and real-time FFT processing modules, as well as how to daisy-chain chassis without using a separate switch module.
  • IADS RT Station and Post Test Explorer: IADS RT Station’s and Post Test Explorer’s new features and benefits for FTI applications are shown in this demonstration.
