Curtiss-Wright Fortress can function as a traditional FDR, cockpit voice recorder, datalink recorder or airborne image recorder, or a combination of the four. It also allows operators to use the data captured for predictive maintenance.
Curtiss-Wright is now a leading supplier of data acquisition avionics for space vehicles worldwide, providing fully integrated data acquisition systems aboard launchers and re-entry space vehicles.
Aaron Frank and Ivan Straznicky look at VITA 47 for ruggededization and reliability. The VITA Standards Organization’s ANSI/VITA 47 targets the Environments, Design and Construction, Safety, and Quality for Plug-In Units.
The risk of failure for avionics equipment on-board spacecraft due to radiation exposure is a critical issue for launchers, re-entry vehicles, space habitats and satellites
Performance is all about eliminating bottlenecks to minimize latency and maximize throughput. To maximize overall system performance requires the fastest, most efficient processor-to-processor data paths.
There is significant commonality between unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and UUV environments with standard rugged military commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded solutions often applicable to both.
Introducing the Smart Backplane subsystem (KAM/CSB/12U), a rugged multi-slot chassis designed specifically for data acquisition, data processing, and recording in radiation-intensive space environments.
Curtiss-Wright MnACQ-2000 stackable networked encoding units support next-gen low-Earth orbit spacecraft
Curtiss-Wright is delivering its rugged, space-qualified data acquisition and network technologies for NASA’s Orion spacecraft and the Space Launch System (SLS).
Gen 4 PCI Express (PCIe) with standard MultiGig RT2 VPX connectors can now meet the increased bandwidth requirements
To build equipment that can handle the challenges of rugged environments, engineers need to make the right design decisions for their components, chassis, and software. Here's how to get the job done.
