Aircraft OEMs and operators who want flight recorders need trusted solutions to meet certain regulations. These can change and it can be difficult to ensure your investment will be future proof. For older aircraft, high maintenance costs, lack of functionality or the push to upgrade systems and reduce weight can mean a new recorder is required.

Curtiss-Wright has been a leading designer of proven cockpit voice and flight data recorders for over 60 years. Our Fortress product line today meets all current and anticipated regulations (including ED-112A and 25 hour voice / datalink recording). They are designed to be compact and lightweight and have a modular interface design to allow rapid customization for particular aircraft needs. This modularization facilitates additional functionality which can help reduce LRU count by integrating functionality into the recorder to further lower weight and free up space and can add functionality such as image recording, encryption and additional data for programs such as usage monitoring.
