Curtiss-Wright Introduces High Density Solid State Drive Module

Posted by jhadmin

HELI-EXPO 2017 (Booth #8751), DALLAS, TX – March 7, 2017 – – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today introduced the XMC-554, a rugged, high performance, reliable and power-efficient solid-state drive (SSD) solution that delivers up to 2 TB of MLC/SLC NAND flash memory. With an increasing number of sensors on airborne, land and naval platforms, the challenge of storing large amounts of data without adding unwanted weight or power, the new XMC-554 is ideal for deployed aerospace and defense applications that require high-density data storage. Because it uses solid-state memory, the card eliminates the need for traditional rotating hard disk drives (HDD) or any other associated moving parts, such as fans. Compared to an HDD, this rugged COTS mezzanine module provides significantly lower power consumption and delivers an order of magnitude improvement in reliability when used in environments with high-vibration, such as manned and unmanned rotor-wing platforms. Even better, thanks to the lower latency and higher data transfer rates provided by the MLC NAND devices, the XMC-554 also provides system integrators with a higher performance data storage solution than available from rotating disk alternatives. For secure environments that require encryption, the card’s mSATA SSD devices optionally support AES-256 encryption and ATA Secure Erase features to protect sensitive data. The XMC-554 is designed for use in data recording, video recording, mission data storage, map storage, database and data logging applications.

Curtiss-Wright Combines Quad-Core 6th Gen “Skylake” Intel® Mobile Xeon® Processing and Cisco® 5915 Embedded Services Router in Compact Chassis

Posted by jhadmin

HELI-EXPO 2017 (Booth #8751), DALLAS, TX – March 7, 2017 – – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today introduced its newest multi-function computing and networking subsystem, the small form factor DuraWORX® 8043. The rugged, compact system uniquely combines the power of the latest 6th gen “Skylake” Intel Xeon E3-based processor (with Error-Correcting Code memory) and Cisco 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) networking technology. Designed to reduce C4ISR system integration challenges (thermal, cabling, power, installation) for tactical computing, IP networking and situational awareness applications, the DuraWORX 8043 reduces platform LRU count to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) burdens in ground vehicle, fixed wing or rotary aircraft, maritime platforms. The unit enables system designers to deploy high performance Intel Mobile Xeon computing architecture and Cisco Systems IOS network routing into embedded computing applications that must perform in harsh temperature, shock, vibration, altitude, dust, water environmental and EMI conditions. It’s ideal for use in outdoor, underground or other demanding embedded computing environments that require connectivity to IP-enabled equipment such as on-board computers, cameras, sensors, radios, satcom modems, monitoring devices, and command-and-control gear.

Aerometals Receives FAA PMA for Oil Cooler Impeller using Modern Manufacturing

Posted by jhadmin

6 March 2017- Dallas, TX - Aftermarket innovator Aerometals has received FAA PMA approval for a replacement design of the Oil Cooler Impeller (P/N A26633-1), which is eligible for installation on the MDHI 369D/E/FF/500N and all variants of the Airbus Helicopters BK117 (H145). By replacing the legacy 21 piece soldered construction method being used on the OEM impeller with 5-axis CNC milled construction, the inherently weak impeller fin joints have been replaced with a one piece design. This superior product strength addressed the historical joint cracking failure mode of the OEM oil cooler impeller. This new Aerometals 5-axis machined, single piece construction, OEM interchangeable product is now available at a substantially reduced price versus the equivalent OEM part.
