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.
Next Generation Data Acquisition System for a Sounding Rocket
Sounding rockets can carry experiments to altitudes that are often unsuitable for balloons and satellites and are much more cost-efficient since they do not require expensive boosters or extended telemetry and tracking coverage.
Rugged, Encrypted Data Storage for an ISR Pod
A customer sought a secure data storage solution that could maintain reliability under extreme temperatures and vibration, and be available off the shelf.
Saab's Target Towing Video System Upgrade
The project involved upgrading their existing video system that helped provide situational awareness during the target towing process.
Solving Display Computer Thermal Challenges in a Jet Trainer Aircraft
This case study examines the problem of needing a graphics display computer for a space-constrained jet trainer aircraft with limited onboard space and no room to support a fan-cooled system.
Meeting Missile Program Upgrade Requirements with Power-Efficient, Future-Proof Transmitters
This case study describes how an organization ensured there was no transmitter interference with other onboard electronics.
