Networked from Ground to Air - ITC 2018 Demo

December 05, 2018

Loading...

This video gives an overview of the “Networked from Ground to Air” demo that was shown at ITC 2018.

It features Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading airborne data acquisition system (DAS) supporting emerging new standards with a Chapter 7 and iNET components, a high-speed Ethernet-based architecture that enables line-of-sight communications to enable flight test engineers to reconfigure test articles during mission. For example, the data recorder, camera sources, parameters and image downlink bit-rates can be modified remotely. The demo showcases Curtiss-Wright’s latest hardware, including high speed DAUs, switches and recorders, and rugged IP cameras and multi-mode transceivers.

  • Complete infrastructure supports dozens of synchronized cameras
  • Optimized for space constrained platforms

Network IP Cameras

  • 1920 x 1080 (60 fps)
  • H.264 or H.265 Encoding
  • Video is Captured Directly onto the Network
  • Logical Routing using Existing Switch Architecture

DATA CONVERSION AND TELEMETRY

Network Gateway

  • Converts data for transmission from Ethernet to PCM
  • Supports DARv3, iNET TmNS, IRIG-106 Chapter 4/7
  • Mode switching changes data streams to optimize downlink efficiency

Multiband Transmitter

  • L,S & C-Band in one unit, ultra-high efficiency, LDPC and Space Time Coding

iNET AND CONTROL

Bi-directional Ethernet link, TmNS compatible

  • Extends the aircraft Ethernet network to the ground
  • Data from the network to be received on the ground directly as Ethernet packets without having to convert to PCM first
  • Supports reconfiguring of the triband transmitter while in flight via SNMP messages

Control and reconfigure hardware e.g.

  • Change frequency of transmitters
  • Switch video streams
  • Configuring your network traffic remotely
