|COTS and Custom Systems Design
To provide customers access to the highest performing technology available, designs begin with leading edge, Commercially-available Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technology based on industry standards and open system architectures. The use of COTS components as key subsystem building blocks maximizes the re-use of both common hardware and software building blocks tightly coupled with the programmatic support services we deliver. This approach decreases our customer's time to market and lowers their overall program development costs.
When a program requires a solution that goes beyond COTS, Curtiss-Wright Subsystems can repackage COTS hardware and software products into a unique, customer-specific capability & form factor. By maintaining flexibility in systems designs, CW Subsystems is able to solve the most difficult legacy subsystem upgrades, and mitigate risk by reducing development time and program costs. We are the industry leader in defining and delivering programs that meet the most stringent long-term program needs.
