Aircraft upgrade programs require system integrators to achieve key objectives including
- reducing the Size, Weight, Power and Cost of vehicle and aircraft electronics
- delivering a rugged mil-qualified design
- hitting aggressive delivery schedules
- leveraging COTS, standards-based technology
- addressing unique platform requirements in a cost-effective and expeditious way.
Modified COTS, or MCOTS, can play an integral role in the success of your upgrade program. With MCOTS, modular, open-architecture-based mission computers can be tailored to meet your requirements, often without traditional NRE fees, in a matter of weeks.
For example, a base DuraCOR mission processor has two slots for MiniPCIe cards and an interlocking chassis enabling added modular segments. Using stacked PCIe104 cards, high-capacity, removable storage and spare connector pins, a range of new and legacy I/O interfaces are available.
Enabled by existing rugged Mini-PCIe and PCIe104 modules, DuraCOR systems can be tailored and configured in virtually limitless combinations and a turnkey mission system can quickly be ready for platform integration.
All of this modular flexibility comes in a SWaP optimized package with an Intel Core i7 mission processor workhorse.
With MCOTS mission computers, military and aerospace contractors can leverage the full potential of modular COTS open architecture. For your next vetronics or avionics upgrade, turn to Curtiss-Wright to help you reduce SWaP, program risk, development time, and expense.
