Curtiss-Wright expands space COTS capabilities through licensing agreement with Réaltra

(5 March 2018 - Curtiss-Wright) Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division has announced a new licensing agreement with Réaltra, a division of Realtime Technologies.

The agreement enables Réaltra to complement existing activity undertaken by Curtiss-Wright’s Aerospace Instrumentation facility in Dublin, Ireland. Under the agreement, Réaltra can market, manufacture, and deliver the Curtiss-Wright Acra KAM-500 range of Space COTS radiation tolerant products into space applications and address customer development choices that are not sufficiently aligned with Curtiss-Wright’s product roadmap or available resources. Curtiss-Wright will continue to have first option on any identified opportunities and will continue to deliver space technology solutions to Curtiss-Wright customers. Danny Gleeson, a principal in Réaltra, will also continue to serve in his space market consultancy role for Curtiss-Wright.

"Our new licensing agreement with Realtime Technologies’ new Réaltra division promises to significantly expand the use of Curtiss-Wright’s cost-effective Space COTS data acquisition technology into the space market,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “We look forward to further growing our Acra KAM-500 business in this exciting market.”

The license agreement provides Curtiss-Wright with the opportunity to accelerate the growing use of its products in the space market by utilizing Réaltra’s resources. Réaltra, a new division of Realtime Technologies Ltd., is focused on providing cost effective electronic systems solutions for the space market. Realtime Technologies is a world-class manufacturer of high-end electronics based in Dublin and has manufactured electronic systems for the Curtiss-Wright Aerospace Instrumentation Dublin facility for more than 10 years.
