Today’s defense applications demand smaller, faster, and smarter technology to maximize performance while minimizing SWaP. What’s more, technology must provide strong, dependable protection against environmental and security vulnerabilities, and a well-supported life cycle throughout the duration of today’s defense programs.

Curtiss-Wright addresses these industry challenges through our full line of rugged, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processor cards that support Intel, NXP Power Architecture, and Arm processors. Our 6U VPX single board computers (SBCs) and digital signal processing (DSP) cards are designed to deliver the significant processing power required for the most demanding C4ISR applications, such as radar, signals intelligence (SIGINT), and image processing.

Curtiss-Wright supports the long life cycle of defense and aerospace programs. To simplify system upgrades, our 6U VPX SBC portfolio offers backwards pin compatibility with previous card generations. Plus, our industry-leading lifecycle management services proactively mitigate longevity challenges to make the most of your investment.

Curtiss-Wright processor cards are supported by a range of Board Support Packages (BSPs), Signal and Data Processing Libraries, device drivers, and other libraries and source code.
