Curtiss-Wright’s open architecture Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) based rugged embedded computing solutions process data in real time to support mission-critical functions. We play a key industry role in the establishment of resources and services to ensure that our customers have access to the long lifecycle support required by aerospace and defence programmes.

We offer unmatched and comprehensive approaches for mitigating obsolescence, blocking the use of counterfeit parts, and developing
product roadmaps to ease the integration of future generations of technologies.

A recent market study recognised Curtiss-Wright as the world’s premiere supplier of rugged COTS VPX™ modules and subsystems.

Not limited to VPX, Curtiss-Wright is a technological leader in providing COTS products and open architecture solutions for mission computing, signal processing, graphics, communication fabrics, system and sensing I/O and data storage.

The ‘building block’ approach to providing solutions gives our customers great benefits with respect to cost, lead time and supportability. While providing these non-developmental items, the technology developed and the intellectual property also becomes a benefit for our customers in the ability to provide custom or point-design products when necessary.

Curtiss-Wright has products deployed in hundreds of defence programmes and continues to provide support throughout their life cycle. Product families continue in volume production for a period of five to seven years and more. During this period, products undergo continuous improvement through software revisions, reliability enhancements and component upgrades.

We realise our defence customers require knowledge, and often control, of these improvements. Application stability and predictability is essential for deployed mission-critical systems, which have an in-service life long past the volume production period.

To meet these marketplace demands, Curtiss-Wright provides a suite of Continuum™ Lifecycle Services that safeguard your programmes and mitigate the challenges associated with leveraging COTS technology for long-term, mission-critical systems.
