A comprehensive lifecycle management strategy is the key to safeguarding programs and mitigating the challenges associated with leveraging COTS technology for long-term mission-critical systems. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions' Continuum Lifecycle Services help identify and reduce the risk of COTS component obsolescence. They also provide control over product configuration changes when required, and extend the availability of product builds and repairs to meet program demands.

Proactively protecting the lifecycle of your military program and technology upfront can significantly reduce long term maintenance costs and improve your return on investment (ROI), resulting in product and financial sustainability. We offer Industry-leading lifecycle services, including longevity of supply (LOS) and longevity of repair (LOR) for our COTS boards and systems.


The Continuum Support Center (CSC) provides around the clock access to support documentation such as:

  • Manuals
  • Product release notes
  • Pinout configurator utilities
  • Firmware updates
  • Software downloads (for Software Upgrade Program subscribers only)

The CSC website is also the hub for the delivery of all Continuum Lifecycle Services. Information such as product health reports and baseline configuration data packages is all available online. In addition, customers can also view, approve, or reject engineering change proposals via the CSC website.
