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.
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.
Miniaturizing Space COTS for Small Launcher Applications
This white paper discusses the need for, and challenge of, compact space COTS systems for modern space applications, in particular for small launcher applications.
Space COTS Approach for New Launcher and Capsule
NASA needed to develop a space launch system and a manned capsule to replace its previous vehicles and to meet future plans for deep space exploration, and land people on Mars. Read about the solution Curtiss-Wright developed here.
Radiation Testing of COTS Data Acquisition Electronics for Space Applications
