Curtiss-Wright’s data concentrator units (DCU) are ideal for solving the problem of combining incompatible output signals during new or retrofit aircraft systems integration. Risk is reduced with a highly flexible design and by using our wealth of experience developing, verifying and certifying RTCA/DO-178B software and DO-254 hardware for customized flight critical and non-critical systems.
Curtiss-Wright designs and manufactures DCUs that can consolidate control of multiple subsystems into a single box, lowering system weight and complexity. Products such as the DCU 4800 can be made to form the data hub for most of the avionics equipment on an aircraft while Curtiss-Wright’s Remote Electronics Units (REU) are perfect for use as individual controllers for single systems. These controllers can be developed quickly and in situations where some requirements may change thanks to our AviBlocks modular prototyping model.
