Fortress OEM

Multi Purpose Flight Recorder with Integrated 3rd Party Card

Recorders are built to meet the latest regulations and often designed with any upcoming changes in mind. To ensure they meet the requirements of new and old aircraft, some modifications may be required, or additional data formatting hardware used. Curtiss-Wright has been manufacturing recorders since 1957 and introduced the world’s first to obtain RTCADO178 approval for solid state recorders.

Fortress OEM provides an aircraft recording solution supporting parametric flight data, 4 channels of cockpit voice recording and CPDLC recording for up to 25 hours each and image recording for 2 hours minimum.

Fortress OEM is designed in accordance with RTCA/DO-178C and RTCA/DO-254. It meets all current and anticipated FAA and EUROCAE requirements and has a 90 day ultrasonic locator beacon (ULB), certified to TSO-C121b.

Through the provision of an expansion slot with internal interface to the Fortress processor card, Fortress OEM can be adapted to support different interface and functional requirements such as the expansion of data acquisition interfaces, the inclusion of Health and Usage Monitoring capability and data/audio encryption capability.

Fortress OEM attaches directly to an airframe to eliminate the need for heavy mounts and easily integrates with other systems to provide additional functionality such as

  • High speed (<45 seconds) and license free flight data download at the gate via a Gigabit Ethernet link
  • Reachback capability for FOQA/FDM/FDAP Aircraft Performance and Engine Condition Trend monitoring programs
  • Health and Usage Monitoring
  • Integrated Data Acquisition
  • Encrypted recording

The Fortress OEM is supported by dedicated Recorder Independent Power Supply, Cockpit Area Microphone, Cockpit Area Camera and Cockpit Control Unit. Variants of the Cockpit Control Unit support dual recorder installations, enabling data and image distribution to two installed Fortress OEM recorders.
