On 28th July 2011, ACRA CONTROL was acquired by Curtiss-Wright Controls and is now the ‘Acra business unit’ of a new division called Curtiss-Wright Controls Avionics & Electronics (CWC-AE). CWC-AE supplies rugged data acquisition, recording and controller sub-system solutions for aerospace and ground applications. These branding and organizational changes have zero implications for ITAR, export licences or any other factor that could affect how we do business with you. More information on the full range of products and the extensive wealth of experience and resources now available can be found at https://www.curtisswrightds.com/avionics/.
Acra provides the most widely-installed Flight Test Instrumentation system in the world with more flight hours than any other. Our reputation is built on reliable and innovative COTS products – a result of sustained investment in R&D and engineering expertise. This combined with AS9100 quality processes and strong program management ensures top class capabilities in aerospace projects of any size. Our customers include all of the major aerospace prime contractors and test agencies with products supplied to over 300 different platforms in 40 countries worldwide.
Risk is lowered using proven COTS hardware with short delivery times and tightly integrated software. Customers benefit from a solution that saves time during flight test programs. Commissioning and calibration times are reduced using specially designed software tools that simplify flight line inspections, pre-flight checks and system reconfiguration.
Our products are designed specifically for the FTI community with full environmental qualifications and software that supports the full test program lifecycle. The compact and high performance hardware is perfect for harsh locations with limited space. A common product line reduces the inventory of spares required and the modularity means they are adaptable and upgradeable resulting in a lower cost of ownership.
Industry leading support is provided by a large, highly trained and experienced team of application engineers. Our dedicated program management department offers worldwide services including technical support visits, product training, documentation, program management, acceptance tests and system integration.
