Great Things Come in Small Packages
The military and aerospace market maintains an insatiable appetite for smaller, lighter, and cheaper. Recent technological breakthroughs in SWaP-C reduction has yielded the introduction of USFF mission computer and networking systems.
Curtiss-Wright is a leader in small form factor Ethernet Switches and reducing the footprint of switches continues to be a priority. While platform system designers strive to increase mission capabilities, there is a continuous challenge to decrease size, weight, and power. In some platforms, even our small form factor 100in3 switch is too big. So we have gone even further.
The Parvus DuraNET 20-11 miniature Gigabit Ethernet Switch is a true game-changer in size weight and power reduction. This rugged switch is just 10in3 big, weighing around .5 lb, and its reduced size does not come at the cost of features. The DuraNET 20-11 includes 8 ports of fully managed, Layer 2 switching and static Layer 3 routing. This is accompanied by robust network security and zeroize functionality.
For your peace of mind, the DuraNET 20-11 has undergone comprehensive environmental and EMI qualification testing to MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461, and DO-160 standards, guaranteeing stability and performance. It's a switch reduced in size, not capabilities! That makes it an ideal network backbone solution for unmanned air systems, helicopters, ground vehicles, and other applications with SWaP, performance, and reliability constraints. All in a pocket-sized unit that is 90% smaller and 50% lighter.
