Broadest Range of MOSA Solutions for Aerospace & Defense Programs
Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions offerings are based on the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA). These open architecture solutions eliminate proprietary interfaces through the use of widely supported consensus-based standards for the major system interfaces between systems and components. From rugged COTS components and modules to ready-to-integrate subsystems, our full suite of solutions, and our product road map, all adhere to MOSA. Curtiss-Wright MOSA Solutions include fully integrated CMOSS/SOSA aligned systems, as well as 3U and 6U OpenVPX system building blocks. For system development we offer complete system architecture services, Quick Reaction Capabilities, and development platforms such as our 3U OpenVPX CMOSS/SOSA aligned enclosures and CMOSS/SOSA Starter Kits.
We offer the most comprehensive range of open standards based small form factor subsystems and modules, including the PacStar® 400 Series of modular Tactical Battlefield Communications solutions, the ultra-compact Parvus® family of processing and network line replaceable units (LRUs), and a complete line of data acquisition solutions. Our MOSA based rugged data solutions support high-density secure data storage protected with either Type 1 Top Secret or NSA-certified Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) encryption. Designed for use on platforms that experience intense shock and vibration, such as helicopters and ground vehicles, our family of video management systems and rugged touchscreen LCD displays delivers optimal performance in harsh environments.
Whether in the air, on the ground, or at sea, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions MOSA technologies deliver high reliability and performance for the most demanding deployed applications, such as Battle Command, Mission Analysis & Planning, SIGINT, RADAR, EW, Flight Test, Jamming, Comms, Fire Control, Vehicle Electronics and Human Machine Interfaces.
