Intel Atom-based Tactical Mission Computer Subsystem with MIL-STD-1553 Displayed by Parvus at AFCEA West
Optimally designed for Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-constrained military / aerospace vehicle and aircraft installations, the new DuraCOR 820-A small form-factor rugged processor delivers processing and multimedia performance comparable (or better) to Pentium M-based DuraCOR solutions, but with less power consumption, double the RAM memory capacity, and dual Flash Solid State Disks (SSDs). The system is equipped with a 28V high efficiency power supply compliant with MIL-STD-1275 and MIL-STD-704 voltages, spikes, and surges, which makes the unit compatible with not only airborne, but also military ground vehicle platforms. System I/O includes 1x Gigabit Ethernet, 1x MIL-STD-1553, 3x USB 2.0, 2x RS-232, 2x PS/2, 8 DIO, and VGA, which are brought out through lightweight, high-density MIL-38999-like connectors, making the product an ideal solution for a variety of unmanned and manned command and control (C2) applications.
The DuraCOR 820-A offers a compact mechanical design (~3lbs weight, ~ 3.0” height) very similar in form factor to flight-qualified legacy Parvus DuraCOR 820 systems currently deployed in unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) and other military applications. The unit is fanless, conduction cooled and designed for use under extended temperature (-40 to +71C) and other demanding MIL-STD-810F environmental conditions (thermal, shock, vibration, altitude, humidity). The new 820-A model offers enhanced ingress protection from dust and water immersion, along with improved filtering and shielding from EMI/EMC conditions. The system is designed to meet and will undergo MIL-STD-810F and MIL-STD-461E environmental and emissions/susceptibility qualification testing as it prepares for production.
For application flexibility, the unit comes with a 4GB industrial SSD pre-loaded with a Linux or Windows Embedded operating system, as well as a 16 GB Compact Flash disk for file storage. The unit is based on a modular PC/104-Plus open architecture, making it possible to customize/special order and meet program-specific I/O requirements. For programs requiring additional I/O expansion capabilities, Parvus offers the DuraCOR 810 and DuraCOR 810-Duo platforms, which feature up to 6x PC104(+) expansion slots.
The DuraCOR 820-A is currently in pre-production. Official pricing is not yet available. MIL-STD qualification testing should begin later in Q1 2010 with production to follow.
