|Fully Integrated/Qualified 3-Slot OpenVPX(tm) Mission Computer combines VICTORY-compliant Network Switch and Vehicle Maintenance Services with Power Architecture(r) processor in WSMR-tested RAD-Tolerant Subsystem|
ASHBURN, Va. Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division has introduced a new rugged mission computer that has been fully qualified for a program of record to the ground combat vehicle environment, including nuclear hardening. The MPMC-9331 Multi-Platform Mission Computer, based on the popular 3U OpenVPX small form factor architecture, is designed to satisfy demanding compute-intensive combat vehicle applications such as Ballistic Fire Control. The MPMC-9331 provides three (3) payload slots, two of which are pre-integrated with a VICTORY (Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability)-complaint networking and vehicle maintenance module and a powerful Power Architecture processor module. The third payload slot is available for system expansion to meet the customers unique application requirements.
We are very excited to introduce the aerospace and defense markets first nuclear hardened VICTORY-compliant, Fire Control & Mission Computer solution, said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. This powerful and rugged COTS subsystem, that has been fully qualified for a program of record, leverages todays leading technology to reduce the system integrators design risk while speeding their combat vehicle applications development schedule.
Successfully tested for RAD-tolerant operation at the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), the mission computer comes pre-qualified and fully configured with Curtiss-Wrights industry leading COTS VPX3-671 VICTORY Ethernet Switch and Power Architecture-based single board computer (SBC) modules. The MPMC-9331 is designed to satisfy the US Armys requirement for Common Ethernet Line Replaceable Module (CEL) solutions. With integrated VICTORY network and vehicle maintenance services, this powerful, yet SWaP-C-optimized, mission computer eases the deployment of interoperable off-the-shelf processing for demanding combat vehicle applications. Even better, because its pre-qualified and RAD-tolerant tested, the MPMC-9331 reduces program development time and risk, thereby accelerating time to deployment.
WSMR Tested for Radiation-Tolerant Operation
Through the careful selection of its COTS components, the MPMC-9331 mission computer supports radiation-tolerant operation if exposed to a nuclear event.
The MPMC-9331 also meets the US Armys Direct Support TMDE (Test, Measurement, & Diagnostic Equipment) Reduction Application standard for logging and maintenance.
