Navy chooses 6U VME single-board computers from GE for shipboard tactical training system

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 1 April 2012. U.S. Navy embedded computing experts needed 6U VME single-board computers for real-time data processing in the Navy's Battle Force Tactical Trainer (BFTT) that provides training and simulation capabilities to Navy ships. They found their military embedded systems solution from GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala.

GE won a $1.85 million Navy order for PowerXtreme Power7E single board computers -- one of a range of PowerXtreme 6U VME single board computers using PowerPC processor technology from Freescale Semiconductor in Austin, Texas. Although the Power7E no longer is a standard offering, GE still makes it available to existing customers, company officials say.

The BFTT is a flexible, interactive single ship-, group-, or force-level tactical combat system trainer to enhance naval combat readiness. BFTT provides training for complex modern shipboard combat systems.
