Designing a graphics-intensive application isn’t an easy feat. Sourcing hardware from multiple vendors and satisfying unique application demands, all while maintaining a low power, high reliability SWaP-optimized footprint creates a variety of roadblocks for the integrator that affect budget, time to market, and program risk. Systems that require safety certifiable graphics make the situation even more complicated and time consuming as your integration team struggles to navigate the regulating authority’s complicated set of requirements. What if you could get all your graphics needs fulfilled at one vendor who has everything you need to simplify your graphics experience?

We offer a one-stop-shop model, which eliminates integration challenges and expensive run-time licenses while simplifying procurement, streamlining support and lowering your total cost of ownership. We offer DO-254 certifiable graphics modules, as well as artifact kits, to ease your certification process. Not only that, we offer 15+ year lifecycle support to give you peace of mind and keep your programs working for the long haul.

Curtiss-Wright's family of graphics controllers and video frame grabbers are specifically designed for providing man-machine interfaces where graphics and sensor imagery must be combined. Our modules:

  • are supported with standards-based OpenGL software interfaces for all popular operating systems
  • support a wide range of graphics and video functions, from simple graphics output, to multi-head, high-performance 3D rendering with capabilities for video acquisition, processing, distribution, recording, and display functionality.
  • are ideal for use in the most advanced rugged deployed applications such as 3D terrain mapping, target acquisition/tracking and helmet mounted displays, as well as a wide variety of command and control applications
  • Can be used in safety critical applications with available design artifacts to meet DO-254 and DO-178 safety certifiable requirements
