Curtiss-Wright Introduces New 25-hour Flight Data Recorder and Cockpit Voice Recorders for the Defense Aviation Market

Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a leading supplier of flight data recorder solutions engineered to succeed, today introduced a 25-hour flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR) designed for use on military fixed-wing and rotor aircrafts. The latest additions to Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading compact, lightweight Fortress® product family, the extremely rugged Fortress FDR-25 and Fortress CVR-25 are designed in accordance with RTCA/DO-178C and RTCA/DO-254 (DAL D) standards and meet or exceed all current FAA and EUROCAE ED-112A standard requirements. These recorders provide aircraft system integrators with a cost-efficient solution that leverages advanced technologies developed for compact commercial and military platforms. For many applications, these recorders provide form and fit replacements that require no change to the airframe. They are ideal for use on new aircraft, or for upgrading older platforms requiring flight data recorders that satisfy commercial regulatory compliance.

“We are proud to lead the industry in bringing extended operation and greater survivability for flight recorders to the military aircraft market,” said Chris Wiltsey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions division. “Our Fortress FDR and CVR products build on Curtiss-Wright’s long legacy in the flight recorder market, with new cost-effective, lightweight and compact modern recorders that meet the latest regulations.
