Asia Pacific Defence ReporterCurtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division announced that it has shipped its first integrated defence grade security solution to a leading defence system integrator for use on a U.S. defence platform. The fully tested, proven solution includes a suite of IP from best-in-class third-party embedded security developers. This milestone highlights how Curtiss-Wright’s enhanced Trusted COTS (eTCOTS) technologies enable customers to more quickly and cost-effectively add state-of-the art security protection to an existing system within a DoD end state application. Curtiss-Wright’s eTCOTS also provides an ideal solution for system designers seeking to rapidly address defence grade security requirements for FMS programs.

“We are very proud to announce that we have delivered our first fully integrated defence grade security solution to satisfy critical security requirements for program protection on DoD systems,” said Chris Wiltsey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions. “This important milestone provides a great example of the value of our enhanced Trusted COTS approach, which leverages leading third-party partner IP to bring advanced security capabilities to the warfighter.”

Curtiss-Wright eTCOTS solutions bring advanced defense grade security to MOSA based systems. For example, the XMC-528 Mezzanine Card, an XMC form factor (VITA 42/61) mezzanine module speeds the integration of advanced security IP into OpenVPX and legacy VMEbus system solutions using industry-standard interfaces. The same security IP suite provided by the XMC-528 mezzanine module can also be integrated directly into the on-board security FPGA resident on Curtiss-Wright’s family of security-ready OpenVPX modules – such as the CHAMP-XD3 3U digital signal processor card and select products in Curtiss-Wright’s upcoming high performance Fabric 100 range of SOSA Technical Standard aligned modules for 3U and 6U embedded computing systems that feature a 100GbE Data Plane and PCIe Gen4 Expansion Plane.
