The origin of Curtiss-Wright stretches back to a windy December day in 1903, when inventors
Wilbur and Orville Wright launched their homemade flying machine
into the air above Kitty Hawk, N.C. Another historic year in
aviation came in 1929, as the Wright Aeronautical Company merged
with Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company to form the Curtiss-Wright Corporation.
Curtiss-Wright Controls, a division of Curtiss-Wright Corporation,
emerged in the late 1960s as a natural growth of our decades of
expertise in precision design, engineering and machining of
propellers and transmission systems. Since then, we have focused
our efforts on the design, engineering and production of
mechanical, hydraulic and electromechanical control and actuation
systems for aerospace, industrial and defense applications. Today,
our company is a recognized leader in high-quality cost-effective
motion control solutions.
Curtiss-Wright Controls Integrated Sensing produces a wide range of sensors and subsystem solutions for
aerospace, defense and industrial applications.
Systems integrators and platform manufacturers in the aerospace,
defense and industrial markets turn to us for solutions that are as
cost-effective as they are cutting-edge.
Curtiss-Wright Controls Integrated Sensing is the global leader in
the field of high-precision engineered controllers and sensors. We
specialize in the production of high-performance linear variable
differential transformers, solenoids, avionics, control
electronics, fire detection systems and manual controllers. Our
diverse products range from potentiometric position sensors in jet
aircraft to aircraft cargo hold smoke detectors to Formula 1
racecar sensors and joysticks on powered wheelchairs.
Our products are designed as component- and subsystem-level
solutions that integrate seamlessly with our customers’ existing
infrastructure. These intuitive solutions ultimately reduce the
number of suppliers while increasing the harmony across every level
of integration. Better still, each and every one of our products is
developed and manufactured with the functionality and reliability
you’ve come to expect from Curtiss-Wright Controls Integrated
