Before submitting an RMA request, have you contacted our Technical Support Group? Some issues can potentially be resolved without sending the material back to Curtiss-Wright.
Please ensure that your failure report provides sufficient information so that our technicians will understand the error. If you are uncertain if the failure report is sufficient, or if there is a concern that the observed failure may not be caught by our standard factory test for the card or system, we strongly suggest you discuss the issue with our Technical Support Group first. This will avoid a product potentially being returned back to you as 'no fault found.'

- Ensure products for different RMA numbers are not packed in the same shipping package.
- Ensure a copy of your purchase order is sent to email@example.com
3. Labeling Your Package
