Press release date: March 4, 2014

ASHBURN, Va. – Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division has begun shipping early access units of the recently introduced VPX3-652 GbE Switch module to key customers in the aerospace and defense industry. The cost-effective 3U VPX Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Switch solution, which speeds and eases the integration of modern networking technology into defense platforms, is scheduled for full production in Q2 2014.

“The market has responded quickly and enthusiastically to the new VPX3-652 GbE Switch module, which has already been designed into a number of important customer programs,” said Lynn Bamford, Sr. VP/GM, Defense Solutions division. “With more ports, faster power-up and lower power consumption than alternatives, this small form factor module meets the needs of our customers looking to save valuable space and weight in today's cost conscious environment."

The VPX3-652 GbE Switch features an extremely low power and fast boot architecture and dramatically lowers the cost of adding network connectivity into new and legacy platforms. This rugged COTS GbE Switch solution is designed to meet the continuing technology refresh requirements of defense and aerospace systems integrators facing pressure to decrease their system size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C). It provides up to 20 ports of Ethernet connectivity in a single 3U slot with a very low power footprint. The VPX3-652 GbE Switch is ideal for use in space-constrained embedded C4ISR and Electronic Warfare (EW) subsystems to support network communications, both within the subsystem and to connect externally to other subsystems within the platform.

Curtiss-Wright End-to-End System Solutions
The VPX3-652 VPX module complements a wide range of Curtiss-Wright COTS solutions for the defense industry, including our wide range of Intel and Power Architecture single board computers (SBC), graphics controllers, and our FPGA and DSP engines.  With modules available in VME, VPX, and mezzanine PMC/XMC form factors, as well as our complete family of fully integrated subsystems, these solutions are designed for immediate deployment in the most rugged environments.
