Small SWaP Space-time navigation information system to capture positioning data offered by Curtiss-Wright


ASHBURN, Va. – The Defense Solutions Division of Curtiss-Wright Corp. in Ashburn, Virginia, features the MiTSPI nTTU-2600 Miniature Array Tactical Time-Space Position Information System for applications requiring size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints such as flight testing, test missile and hypersonic test.

The compact MiTSPI nTTU-2600 provides position information for location and orientation in space to capture critical data involving navigation, inertial measurement unit (IMU), and global positioning system ( GPS) GPS.

MiTSPI nTTU-2600 provides user-defined space-time position information to support real-time telemetry over Ethernet and Chapter 4 pulse-code modulation. It also supports simultaneous recording for post-flight data recovery.

Curtiss-Wright’s MiTSPI family of miniature space-time position information stack subsystems provides 4x accuracy in an envelope 1/10 the size of legacy units typically deployed on existing military platforms. The system weighs 1.5 pounds and measures 3.29 x 3.14 x 4 inches.

The MiTSPI nTTU-2600 transmits real-time position information in serial and Ethernet space-time at data rates as fast as 20 megabits per second and features a 100Base-T Ethernet interface. It supports a MINS-600 output rate of 1 megabit per second.

The unit’s data logger has a pulse code modulation output to transfer data to a transmitter. For more information, contact Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions online at
