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. Products are manufactured from batch-controlled components, ensuring product traceability, meeting with the demands of space missions, while at the same time minimizing the cost to the end-customer. Typical applications that use space COTS data acquisition includes launch vehicle DAS and space vehicle DAS.
The data acquisition and transmission systems consist of a chassis, a backplane controller and user selected modules. They are driven by hardwired finite state machines with a ‘works once, works always’ operation to make them extremely reliable. This low power design results in less heat and, coupled with its compact size and MIL-SPEC ruggedness, makes it ideal for installing in locations that have limited space are subject to harsh environments. This mature architecture has remained stable for over a decade thanks to the future proof design philosophy. Supporting products include quick access recorders and Ethernet switches.
