Space data acquisition and onboard handling
Increasing commercial pressures are putting focus on keeping costs to a minimum for space missions. This has led to a widespread use of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) development and operational flight instrumentation for space launchers and vehicles.
Curtiss-Wright's space qualified COTS use highly ruggedized modular data acquisition and telemetry systems that balance low cost with high reliability and leverage a flight test heritage of 20+ years.
Our launch vehicle data acquisition on board data handling has been proven successful on many missions, including SpaceX Falcon 9 and Dragon, ESA IXV and ULA Delta V, and have been selected for future use on many more.
