  • September 15, 2011 -- Flight-control computer for avionics in helicopters and UAVs introduced by Curtiss-Wright
    SANTA CLARITA, Calif., 15 Sept. 2011. Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems (CWCES) in Santa Clarita, Calif., is introducing the Versatile Flight Control Computer (VFCC) for high-performance and low-power conduction-cooled embedded processing in size-, weight-, power-, and cost (SWaP-C)-critical applications aboard military and commercial aircraft such as helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The VFCC is designed form demanding avionics applications such flight controls, vibration management, engine controls, mission computing, and actuator control, Curtiss-Wright officials say.
  • September 16, 2011 -- 3U VPX conduction-cooled power supply for rugged deployed military applications introduced by X-ES
    MIDDLETON, Wis., 16 Sept. 2011. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPm2120 conduction-cooled, VITA 62, 3U VPX power supply for rugged military applications. The XPm2120 takes a MIL-STD-704 input voltage of 28 volts DC and provides as much as 300 Watts of power on the 3.3-volt, 5-volt, and 12-volt rails at 90 percent efficiency with 12 volts as the primary power distribution rail in the system. The slim 0.8-inch pitch XPm2120 integrates MIL-STD-461E for electro-magnetic interference (EMI) filtering. The XPm2120 can operate input voltages from 16 volts to 50 volts steady-state while maintaining as much as 300 Watts of isolated output power.
  • September 19, 2011 -- Cross Match issues order for Eurotech embedded modules to produce handheld biometric identity device
    COLUMBIA, Md., 19 Sept. 2011. Engineers at Cross Match Technologies Inc. in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., needed an embedded computing module with which to ramp up production of a handheld device for homeland security and defense. They found their solution from Eurotech, a supplier of embedded technologies, products, and systems. Cross Match officials issued a $1.5 million purchase order for the Eurotech Catalyst TC module, based on the Intel Atom processor E6xx series. Eurotech will deliver the Catalyst TC modules over the next 12 months.
  • September 20, 2011 -- FPGA-based PCI Express single-board computer for signal processing and data acquisition introduced by BittWare
    CONCORD, N.H., 20 Sept. 2011. BittWare Inc. in Concord, N.H., is introducing the S5-PCIe, a PCI Express single-board computer for high-performance signal processing and data acquisition. The S5-PCIe is based on the Stratix V field-programmable gate array (FPGA) from Altera Corp. in San Jose, Calif, provides two VITA-57 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) sites for additional I/O and processing, and two optional QSFP+ cages for serial I/O.
  • September 22, 2011 -- Dot Hill, Phoenix International join hands to provide rugged data storage for Joint STARS and AWACS
    LONGMONT, Colo., 22 Sept. 2011. Data storage specialist Dot Hill Systems Corp. in Longmont, Colo., is joining hands with Phoenix International Systems in Orange, Calif., to develop and build a ruggedized data storage system for two major U.S. airborne military surveillance systems. Dot Hill and Phoenix International have signed an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement to integrate Dot Hill's 3000 series redundant array of independent disks (RAID) controller with Phoenix International rugged data storage technology for deployment on the Northrop Grumman Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint-STARS) aircraft, as well as the Boeing Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) surveillance aircraft.
