Challenges in Aerospace Instrumentation
The challenges facing developers are often the same - ensure a system can collect, process and store data reliably each and every flight. But systems can be complex and often you are faced with a new or unusual requirement that may not be solved with existing products on the market. At the same time, systems need to be developed and installed quickly, and be capable of adapting to changing needs, both during and after the development cycle.
Risk can be lowered by using proven COTS systems that deliver data reliably and that are flexible to allow for rapid reconfiguration when requirements change. Working with an expert partner can also help to ensure your system meets your requirements correctly while strong support will lower risk in the event of unforeseen problems. Choosing a partner with a track record for delivering robust customized COTS solutions can help ensure data is delivered reliably.
Curtiss-Wright offers a wide range of COTS product with the capability to customize offerings where required. We use modular systems to develop and deliver systems quickly and to ensure systems can be adapted quickly to meet any new requirements. Our total systems solution helps to remove integration issues while our decades of experience in the industry mean we can help you meet your programs needs. We have decades of experience developing rock solid systems for harsh environments such as engine bays and high radiation environments of Earth orbit.
Deploying our systems means getting an expert partner to deliver a total solution with less risk of losing data and having to suffer the schedule and financial costs.
Curtiss-Wright is the largest rugged data acquisition provider in the world and has been producing systems for decades. Deploying such systems means less risk of losing data, having to repeat a flight or losing weeks or compromising the integrity of a maintenance program and suffering the schedule and financial costs.
