CHARLOTTE, N.C., 21 May 2012. Curtiss-Wright Controls Inc.’s rugged single-board computers are being used in a U.S. Air Force target recognition system. The processing systems were delivered under contract to an unnamed defense contractor as part of a tactical fighter jet modernization plan.
The high-performance commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) single-board computer technology from Curtiss-Wright plays a role in the advanced friendly target recognition system, according to David Adams, co-chief operating officer for Curtiss-Wright Corp.

Curtiss-Wright personnel manufactured the processor modules at the company’s Motion Control facility in Ottawa, Canada.
