3U VPX- or CompactPCI-based rugged computer for avionics and vetronics introduced by Aitech

MUNICH, 22 March 2012. Aitech Systems Ltd. in Herzliya, Israel, are introducing the A190 RediBuilt 3U VPX rugged computer system for aerospace and defense avionics and vetronics applications in manned and unmanned aircraft as well as in manned and unmanned ground vehicles. Aitech made their announcement this week at the Avionics Europe 2012 conference and trade show in Munich, Germany, sponsored by Avionics Intelligence and PennWell.

The sealed rugged computer for military embedded systems has two slots for either 3U CompactPCI or VPX single-board computers made by Aitech or by third-party embedded computing suppliers, Aitech officials say. The A190 RediBuilt rugged computer can accept single-board computers based on either the Intel Core i7 or PowerPC 7448 microprocessors.

The rugged computer system has been designed into a ground-based video imaging system based on the Intel Core i7 microprocessor that is being manufactured by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. in Haifa, Israel, Aitech officials say.

The A190 RediBuilt accepts power inputs based on MIL-STD-1275 and MIL-STD-704 to accommodate ground vehicles and aircraft, Aitech officials say. The rugged computer, built for military and other harsh environment applications, has a front-panel I/O board with MIL-DTL-38999 military connectors, is internally conduction cooled, and has a sealed Faraday cage and EMI/RFI filtering.

The computer also has high speed SDRAM memory, SATA flash solid-state drive data storage, graphics capabilities, I/O that includes Gigabit Ethernet, USB, serial ports, discrete I/O, CANbus, MIL-STD-1553B, and ARINC-429, and software support that includes Windows, Wind River VxWorks, Linux, and Green Hills Integrity.
