Ethernet in space and aerospace applications has some particular requirements compared to a typical office. The environment is harsher and reliability is key, but so is real-time data delivery. Curtiss-Wright rugged Ethernet switches are specifically designed for the unique requirements of aerospace networks.

These airborne Ethernet switches are deterministic, reliable and fast. They have a rugged compact form to survive the extreme conditions of the aerospace environment with wide temperature operation from -40 to 85°C.

Rapid boot-up minimizes data loss from power outages while flexible forwarding and filtering configurations can send required to multiple destinations for real-time monitoring, recording and transmission. Our switches support IEEE-1588 PTP and selected models have embedded v1 and v2 Grandmaster support and translation (thus can be used to bridge v1 and v2 networks). They support GPS and digital IRIG-B input and output for time and can be used with additional hardware to create Ethernet to PCM and PCM to Ethernet gateways. We are iNET-ready with tools for complete network monitoring and control.
