Curtiss-Wright to Equip T-6 Texan II Trainer Aircraft With New Recorder System

Curtiss-Wright has received a contract from Scientific Research Corporation to provide a new recorder system for the military’s T-6 Texan II trainer aircraft.

The company will equip the trainer aircraft with its Fortress CVR25 recorder, a solution that combines cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder capabilities.

Designed for military fixed and rotary wing platforms, the Fortress CVR25 recorder also performs data acquisition and real time data processing for post-flight analysis, Curtiss-Wright said Wednesday.

Data collected by the recorder system will be used in flight safety and pilot training programs such as the Air Force’s Military Flight Operations Quality Assurance, Aircraft Structural Integrity and Aircraft Safety Program.

In a statement, Lynn Bamford, president and chief executive officer of Curtiss-Wright, said the contract award represents the company’s ability to utilize its experience in commercial markets to deliver critical solutions to adjacent markets.

“We look forward to working with SRC to further enable the benefits of our modern-day flight recorder technology for additional applications serving the military aircraft market,” Bamford added.

The delivery of the Fortress CVR25 solution will support SRC’s work on upgrading the trainer aircraft.

Headquartered in Davidson, North Carolina, Curtiss-Wright supplies products and services for land, air and sea platforms. The company’s portfolio includes computing and networking modules, flight and data recorders, video solutions, motion control solutions and test and monitoring solutions.
