Seakr Engineering's solid-state memory units to be designed into C-17 cargo jet avionics

APRIL 18, 10:04 EDT

JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. -- Avionics subsystems designers at BAE Systems Controls of Johnson City, N.Y., needed solid-state bulk memory units for in-flight monitoring and collision-avoidance subsystems aboard the U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III cargo jet.

They found their solution in the NV-VME memory family from Seakr Engineering Inc. of Englewood, Colo. BAE Systems designers announced their choice of Seakr April 17.

BAE designers will use Seakr's NV-VME memory units in the Core Integrated Processor (CIP) and the Video Integrated Processor (VIP) programs for the C-17.

First, they will use Seakr's two-gigabyte unit for the C-17's CIP systems, which perform in-flight functions from load analysis to mission planning activities. Second, they will use Seakr's six-gigabyte unit to store mapping and collision avoidance data to support the VIP Terrain Awareness Warning System (TAWS) mission.

The NV-VME family is a 6U VME architecture based upon an existing and flight-proven architecture, which has been modified for use in military, industrial, and other rugged applications, Seakr officials say.

The 500-megabyte to 12-gigabyte NV-VME family has an 8 bit proprietary Error Detection And Correction (EDAC) algorithm, traditional memory mapping functions, and optional power strobing circuits to allow powering down the flash memory devices when not engaged in a record, erase, or playback operation. The NV-VME Product Family offers capacities ranging from 500 Mbytes to 12 gigabytes and delivery from 4 - 6 months after receipt of order.

Seakr's non-volatile VME memory products have applications in many markets including space, military, computing, medical, networking, storage products, telecommunications, industrial automation, test and measurement, wireless, asset management systems, collision avoidance, and data acquisition and control systems.
