Airbus Chooses DDC’s MIL-STD-1553 Components for A350 XWB Flight Control!

Bohemia, New York (March 2010) Data Device Corporation (DDC) has been selected by Airbus to supply MIL-STD-1553 components for its new generation A350 XWB aircraft. Considered a standard, MIL-STD-1553 has caught the attention of commercial aircraft manufacturers, such as Airbus, who seek to capitalize upon 1553’s inherent reliability, robustness, maturity, and superior EMI performance.

Airbus based its selection on DDC’s decades of experience supplying MIL-STD-1553 data bus boards, components, and software solutions for military, commercial, and aerospace applications, and competitive pricing. Another important consideration was that DDC’s products facilitate achieving RTCA/DO-254 Level A certification, a significant factor in the avionics industry.

“DDC was selected for its ability to provide reliable components for critical primary flight control systems, and for its combination of industry expertise, experience, support, and manufacturing capability”.

“DDC is proud to have achieved the high standards required by Airbus to become a valued member of the team implementing MIL-STD-1553 solutions on the A350 XWB. DDC looks forward to working closely with Airbus and we are confident that our decades of MIL-STD-1553 experience will be a strong contributing factor to the success of the project”, stated Mike Hegarty, DDC’s Principal Marketing Engineer.
