LEESBURG, Va., 7 June 2009. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Leesburg, Va., is launching an anti tamper program for military embedded systems called Trusted COTS to protect critical program information in deployed embedded systems, in response to U.S. Department of Defense's (DOD) mandate to protect all military critical technology and data.

Curtiss-Wright Controls will develop standards, methodologies, and tools help systems designers at Curtiss-Wright and the company's partners to use anti tamper hardware and military security software components.

"Our approach will be to provide layers of protection by developing the IP [intellectual property] and partnership relationships with the key suppliers needed to build a portfolio of enabling technologies that our customers can use in their protection plans," says Lynn Patterson, vice president and general manager of the Curtiss-Wright Modular Solutions segment.

DOD directive 5200.39, handed down last year, says military systems must protect critical program information. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright online at www.cwcembedded.com.
