Using a Diminished Visual Environment (DVE) system enables aircraft pilots to visualize the landing area in poor conditions, allowing them a safe, on time descent to their target destination.
The rapid change in both sensor and video system technology in the last decade has pushed aircraft operators to evaluate their system architecture to maximize performance and reduce complexity and system weight.
Wide-area persistent surveillance pods collect massive amounts of data due to the long mission ranges and proliferating number of sensors. When a large systems integrator needed a solution to capture this high speed data, they contacted Curtiss-Wright.
This case study describes how a rotorcraft manufacturer upgraded its existing flight data recorders with one designed to accommodate enhanced data acquisition needs and meet current and upcoming regulations.
When 30 year old airborne surveillance and control equipment mounted on the underside of an aging helicopter required replacement, the manufacturer needed a trusted, proven leader they could rely on to provide mission critical processing technology in harsh environments.
This case study describes how an operator of a 5th generation fighter found room to install aircraft monitoring instrumentation to help examine performance and rapidly identify any future issues.
When a large system integrator needed a SWaP optimized, rugged, network attached storage system with NSA approved encryption, for a UAV tey contacted Curtiss-Wright for a trusted, proven solution.
When NAVAIR ran into obsolescence issues with aging radar consoles, they contacted Curtiss-Wright to provide a long term replacement solution for consoles located in a number of lab locations.
This case study describes how a manufacturer of an electric VTOL aircraft selected and installed a suitable flight test instrumentation (FTI) system quickly to help meet a rigorous schedule.
Tactical Air Support, Inc. needed a cockpit accessible rugged data recorder and a pre-integrated mission computer to upgrade its fleet of F-5AT Tiger II Military supersonic tactical fighters. Read about the solution Curtiss-Wright developed here.
