Featured products include a range of rugged LCD touchscreen displays and video management system solutions, including video format converters and analog video switches. Curtiss-Wright will also highlight its industry leading family of Fortress Flight Data Recorders (FDR) that combine cockpit voice recorders (CVR) and FDRs in a single next-generation compact unit.

With the world’s largest range of system level Flight Test Instrumentation (FTI) solutions, Curtiss-Wright will proudly present its popular KAM-500 data acquisition unit (DAU) along with the next-generation Axon DAU, the most powerful and modern solution on the market, as well as the complementary Axonite remote housings, which are designed to work with Curtiss-Wright’s TTC nDAU, TTC MnACQ, TTC MnHSD, and KAM-500 DAU family of products. As a leading supplier of high-speed cameras, data recorders, and switches for FTI applications, Curtiss-Wright will also have its HD camera on display.

For many years, Curtiss-Wright has been recognized as the world’s leading supplier of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) open architecture OpenVPX building blocks for developers of rugged deployed aerospace and defense C4ISR systems. Examples of best-of-breed rugged COTS modules on display will include the VPX3 and VPX6 OpenVPX single board computers (SBC) and the CHAMP- XD2 dual Intel Xeon D digital signal processor (DSP) board. For applications that require high-performance mission computing or networking solutions in ultra-compact line replaceable unit (LRU) packaging, examples on display will include the Parvus DuraCOR 8043 mission computer and Parvus DuraNET 20-11 rugged network router and switch.

For applications requiring high-speed storage and encrypted protection of critical data-at-rest (DAR), the Data Transport System (DTS1) network attached storage (NAS) device will be on display. This COTS DAR storage solution stores up to 4 TB and is the embedded industry’s first DAR storage solution designed to support two layers of full disk encryption (FDE) in a single device. The DTS1 has received Common Criteria (CC) certification for both the hardware and software disk encryption layers and is listed on the United States NIAP Product Compliant List and the NATO Information Assurance Product Catalogue (NIAPC).

In addition, Curtiss-Wright’s VPX3-1259 SBC will be featured in Elma Electronic’s booth (C16; Singapore Pavilion), integrated into an Elma D-Frame chassis and running a flight simulator to demonstrate its high-performance processing and integrated graphics.
