The challenges facing developers are often the same - ensure a system can collect, process and store data reliably each and every flight. But systems can be complex and often you are faced with a new or unusual requirement that may not be solved with existing products on the market. At the same time, systems need to be developed and installed quickly, and be capable of adapting to changing needs, both during and after the development cycle.

Curtiss-Wright provides aerospace instrumentation that is proven for decades in the harshest of environments. We have deep experience providing systems to just about every program, aircraft and application type. Our partnership approach helps you get the best system to meet the program needs. Our ability to modify our commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions ensures unique needs can be addressed without the expense of a full bespoke system.

Curtiss-Wright uses a COTS approach that utilizes modular systems and offers a range of components to build complete systems solutions with ease. Our manufacturing and support systems facilitate rapid development, adaptability and scalability as well as lower cost prototyping and short product runs.
