Space Data Handling
Curtiss-Wright helps reduce costs, development time, and risk by using a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) approach that utilizes an extensive library of proven IP and decades of rugged system design experience. Our designers optimize systems for low cost of ownership based on a customer’s application and the procurement life of the platform. The Curtiss-Wright Space COTS versatility has been fully proven – no other COTS system has been qualified and used successfully in such a wide variety of space missions for both Development Flight Instrumentation (DFI) and Operational Flight Instrumentation (OFI) requirements.
Space Data Acquisition Solutions
Our commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) data acquisition, video, and transmission products combine the cost savings of commercial designs with innovative radiation-tolerant strategies to deliver trusted systems at up to 75% lower cost than custom designs. Reduce size, weight, and power (SWaP) demands with custom modules that eliminate the need for separate avionics boxes and allow for efficient management of power budgets. Our space COTS and Smart Backplane products have been proven on multiple space applications, including EASA Vega-C, NASA Orion SLS & CRV, Boeing CST-100 Starliner, SpaceX Falcon 9 and Dragon, ESA IXV, ULA Delta V, and Rocketlab Electron.
