WASHINGTON, 11 Oct. 2011. Embedded computing specialist Aitech Defense Systems Inc. in Chatsworth, Calif., is offering support and a 12-year guarantee of availability for all boards and systems that Aitech develops from initial production date. Aitech's three-phased COTS Lifecycle+ program ensures that Aitech will not obsolete its component parts and support over at least 12 years, so systems integrators can keep systems using Aitech parts running well into the future.
Each of Aitech's standard products has three extended product lifecycles, each with a guaranteed minimum support period of four years, company officials say. The active phase is the initial product lifecycle, in which the product and Aitech support are available for all existing and new programs. The supported phase extends this product availability and support for existing, program-specific designs for a minimum of another four years.
Extended support is available through an agreement tailored to each user to provide services and support based on the application. This adds another four years and brings program to a minimum 12 years of support.
