Ultra-Compact, Scalable and Reliable Data Acquisition

The Axon is an ultra-compact and lightweight data acquisition system that is ideal as a remote node or as a stand alone chassis. It builds on Curtiss-Wright’s heritage as a leading supplier of rugged reliable data acquisition and works with Curtiss-Wright's other widely used DAU chassis. 

Axon uses a high-speed serial backplane (1 Gbps dedicated link per module) to ensure future high data rates are supported. This design also allows off-the-shelf data acquisition modules to be placed in ultra-miniature "Axonite" housings and located remotely. These can be separated from the chassis by up to 10 meters. Locating data acquisition closer to the sensors can significantly decrease the installation time and cost of the instrumentation while simultaneously reducing wiring weight.

Further flexibility is provided by Axon’s dual Gigabit Ethernet outputs, which simplify the addition of Ethernet nodes or allow multiple DAU chassis to be daisy chained together. An on-board processor speeds configuration, pre-flight checks, and in-service firmware upgrading.

The Axon uses hardware-based acquisition engines to minimize data loss, support deterministic operation and ensure rapid recovery in the case of a power brownout. Axon supports the same data formats and can be configured using the same setup software as other Curtiss-Wright DAUs. Data between chassis can be synchronized easily using a protocol such as the IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP). 

The Axon is ideal for use in Flight Test Instrumentation, Airborne Telemetry, Flight Data Monitoring and Space Data Handling applications.
