Today’s defense applications demand smaller, faster and smarter technology to maximize performance while minimizing size, weight and power (SWaP). What’s more, defense technology must provide strong, dependable protection against environmental, cybersecurity and anti-tamper vulnerabilities, and a well-supported lifecycle throughout the duration of today’s defense programs.
Curtiss-Wright addresses these industry challenges through our full line of rugged, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processor cards supporting Intel, NXP Power Architecture and Arm processors, as well as AMD & NVIDIA GPGPUs. Curtiss-Wright supports the long lifecycle of defense and aerospace programs by offering most single board computers (SBCs) with backwards pin-compatibility to enable easy system upgrades from older products, as well as lifecycle management services to proactively mitigate longevity challenges.

Curtiss-Wright processor cards are supported by a range of Board Support Packages (BSPs), Signal & Data Processing Libraries, device drivers, and other libraries and source code. For programs with DO-254 requirements, our selection of commercially designed, safety-certifiable SBCs are delivered with a full artifacts package to reduce the risk, cost and development time required to reach certification.
