NIITEK chooses rugged mission computers from Parvus for mine-hunting ground-penetrating radar system

SALT LAKE CITY, 8 July 2012. Ground-penetrating radar specialist NIITEK in Dulles, Va., needed a rugged mission computer subsystem for the company's Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Husky Mounted Detection System (HMDS). They found their solution from Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City.

Parvus won a $4.9 million contract from NIITEK to supply the Parvus DuraCOR mission computer for NIITEK's GPR HMDS. With the latest contract, Parvus surpasses a $15 million in orders for the company's rugged COTS DuraCOR embedded computers for the GPR HMDS detection system in military and humanitarian land mine road clearance applications.

Parvus will supply NIITEK with the Intel Core2Duo-based DuraCOR 810-Duo subsystem pre-integrated with application-specific PC/104-Plus I/O cards as a turnkey system complete with environmental stress screening (ESS).

Parvus has been supplying DuraCOR computers to NIITEK since 2009. All new units ordered are expected to ship this year, company officials say. Parvus is a subsidiary of miniature computer expert Eurotech in Amaro, Italy.

NIITEK’s recently won a potential $161 million U.S. Army sole-source contract to provide the GPR HMDS, spares, and replacement systems. The contract also is for future Army, Marine Corps., and foreign military sales. of the ground-penetrating radar system for detecting land mines.

The Parvus DuraCOR mission computer is designed for command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) on manned and unmanned land vehicles. The rugged computers offer a MIL-STD qualified and modular open architecture, and meet MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, and MIL-STD-704/1275.
