Curtiss-Wright Controls, Inc., a leading manufacturer of mission critical systems for defense and aerospace applications, has received a contract from the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) to supply advanced rugged computer processing modules for use in an advanced, large Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) demonstrator being developed for the Robotic Vehicle Control Architecture (RVCA) for a Future Force Army Technology Objective (ATO). The Curtiss-Wright Controls processor modules will be used to host the battle command software for the UGV.
Under the terms of the agreement, Curtiss-Wright Controls’ Embedded Computing group will provide the U.S. Army with its innovative VPX6-1952 single board computer technology.

“Curtiss-Wright Controls is proud to provide our advanced, high performance VPX single board computers for use by TARDEC,” said David Adams, co-chief operating officer of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “The operational advantages expected from the U.S. Army’s RVCA ATO and the use of robotic unmanned ground vehicles promise to significantly improve the safety of the war fighter.”
