USFF Systems for Computing and Networking Onboard eVTOL Aircraft
Multiple eVTOL aircraft developers from America and Europe have come to Curtiss-Wright seeking rugged COTS hardware to be used for prototyping as they develop their new aircraft platforms for production.
Flexible I/O System Design Reduced Cost, SWaP, and Time
A leading prime contractor of airborne imaging systems came to Curtiss-Wright with a 3U OpenVPX system architecture design problem they were doubtful could be solved, given the project’s constraints.
Successful Integration of a Launcher Video Telemetry System Using COTS Equipment
Réaltra was awarded a contract to develop a launcher video telemetry system (LVTS) that will provide the onboard live video telemetry for a launcher that is anticipated to fly in 2021.
Meeting Local Content Requirements with a Modular Motion Control Solution
In 2019, Rheinmetall Defence Australia was awarded a contract to provide a replacement of the Australian Army’s Light Armoured Vehicle in support of Phase 2 of the Land 400 project.
Large Aircraft Rapidly Deploys Customizable Mission Recording System
A manufacturer of a large military aircraft required a mission recording system to collect engineering data from around the aircraft and store it on a recorder for post-mission analysis.
New Commercial Airliner Rapidly Deploys Customizable Mission Recording System
A new aircraft development program wanted to deploy the most modern avionics systems available to ensure the aircraft could compete against the newest on the market.
Modified COTS Solution Extends Platform Lifespan and Mission Capabilities
Aerospace integrators are often called upon to upgrade aging airframes with new electronic payloads to extend their lifespan and mission capabilities.
Unmanned Underwater Vehicle NAS Protects Terabytes of Top Secret Mission Data
In search of a small form factor network attached storage (NAS) solution for a new UUV, an engineer at a defense contractor reached out to Curtiss-Wright. The UUV required a high storage capacity solution to store critical mission data on long-range missions.
Successful COTS Solution for Space Vehicle Onboard Recording and Audio Handling
This case study describes how a space vehicle designer was able to rapidly implement a system to collect all of the data from onboard computers and accommodate late changes to requirements.
Mission Recorder With Secure Data Storage for Utility Helicopter
Gathering and analyzing mission data onboard a utility helicopter requires secure data recording and storage.
USFF Mission Processors and Network Switches for ISR UAV Targeting System
As unmanned vehicles become more powerful and complex, their electronics payloads must adapt to match new mission objectives. This often forces aerospace and defense system integrators to push for reductions in size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).
Use Case: Advanced Tactical Data Link Gateway for the Modern Warfighter
TCG HUNTR software installed on a Parvus DuraCOR 8043 mission computer, displayed on a GVDU mission display, provides operators with a rugged, small form factor solution that can be used on the battlefield with minimal training and almost no expertise.
