Ensure safe & efficient aircraft operation with reliable air data computing in the harshest environments
Aircraft rely heavily on proven air data computers (ADCs) to provide trusted airspeed and altitude parameters that are essential to safe and efficient operation. Our selection of ADCs leverages high-accuracy sensors and high-TRL, fully rugged designs to provide stable data, while digital filtering technology reduces pneumatic noise in air pressure to mitigate rotor downwash effects without adding weight like a mechanical solution would. Equipping diverse fleets has never been simpler, with a single unit being usable on up to fifteen different platforms through a simple pinout selection. Built using over 40 years of proven experience developing air data solutions, Curtiss-Wright ADCs are engineered to succeed.

Rotorcraft Fleet Logistics Optimization
An operator of a diverse fleet of rotorcraft required a sensing solution that could give the accurate data they needed to reliably perform various missions. The solution compensated for downwash enabled pilots to have better information at low speed and reduced the inventory needs across a fleet of six different aircraft.
Optimally Utilizing Glass Cockpit Displays
In contrast to mechanical displays, glass cockpit displays rely on computerized systems that integrate multiple data inputs and controls. They can present more information in the available space than conventional instrument panels. However, existing onboard systems may not output data in the correct format to integrate directly into these displays. This white paper will discuss how glass cockpit displays can be optimally utilized and how line replaceable units (LRU) such as flight recorders and air data computers (ADC) integrate with these modern systems.
