Aerospace Instrumentation Brochure
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, and it can be difficult to know how to meet program needs. It’s not unusual for requirements to change during a campaign and cause significant delays, and data must be captured reliably no matter what – otherwise expensive additional flights will be needed or months of program data could be lost. Read our brochure to learn how you can reduce your risk with commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions.
Instrumenting an electric vertical take off and landing vehicle
An eVTOL had a strict design target to be as light and compact as possible to accommodate the unique all-electric design (including propulsion) and operational requirements. This left little room for installing FTI, forcing equipment mass and wiring to be kept to a minimum. Read the case study to learn more about the challenges integrators faced and how an FTI system was installed successfully on time in the extremely limited space available.
Reliable and flexible data capture is key to fight test and monitoring
Modern aerospace instrumentation systems can be highly complex, with changing requirements that can cause significant delays. Reliably capturing data is essential to avoid expensive additional flights or the loss of months of program data. Curtiss-Wright provides a comprehensive range of cutting-edge COTS and customizable systems that have been engineered to meet these challenges. When you use our systems, you automatically get an expert partner with decades of experience that can extend your system architect/design team to deliver a future-proof total system solution.
