Today's Aerospace and Defense Applications Demand High Performance in Small FORM FACTORS

With the continued proliferation of small Unmanned Airborne Systems and the ever increasing pressure to find ways to be more and more competitive in the deployed military market, the number of platforms that require low size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) solutions are exploding. In response to this growing need, Curtiss- Wright has developed a series of products that either miniaturize classic airborne platform components, or allow the ability to consolidate these components into a single miniaturized solution.

To help describe the fit of these products, a high level view of a classic, generic airborne electronics architecture is shown below. Typically there are two major groupings of electronics on any platform: the flight electronics and the mission electronics. Flight electronics cover major functions that have to do with the movement and management of the aircraft such as flight computer, flight surface actuation, health management, air data computers, air data logging, flight display, etc. Mission electronics encompass functions such as sensors (EO/ IR, radar, lidar, EW, etc.), sensor processing, mission data recording, communication, mission display, and the mission processor. These two categories, while very different in function, do share some capabilities such as PNT (position, navigation and time) and in some cases a common data bus.
