Curtiss-Wright launches solutions aircraft maintenance
Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions has launched commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based usage monitoring and predictive maintenance solutions for the avionics market, the company announced on 9 April.
The flexible COTS solutions have been launched for predictive maintenance, health and usage monitoring systems (HUMS), condition based maintenance (CBM) and data monitoring applications.
Curtiss-Wright’s customers include airframe manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, helicopter operators and government agencies.
The company is offering four distinct solution types for deploying data acquisition capabilities on aircraft. They include data acquisition systems to support a large number of configurations through the simple integration of I/O modules; Fortress flight data recorder, which can be easily expanded to support HUMS capabilities to monitor the health of the aircraft’s avionics systems; production fit instrumentation package; and COTS-based aircraft condition maintenance systems solutions.
Lynn Bamford, senior vice president and general manager, Defense Solutions division, said: ‘Customers benefit from our leadership position in the development and deployment of FTI and flight data recorder products, bringing unmatched expertise in open architecture design and rugged packaging to give MRO, fleet and OEM customers more control over their configurations and speed delivery of next generation capabilities.’
