COMMUNICATIONS EQUIPMENT: Rugged communications router from Parvus chosen for NATO MEADS anti-ballistic missile system

Missile defense systems integrators at Lockheed Martin Space Systems Co. in Littleton, Colo., needed a rugged integrated services router (ISR), to provide the network connectivity for the NATO medium extended air defense system (MEADS) anti-missile system. They found their solution from Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City.

Parvus officials will provide the company's DuraNET 3825, a ruggedized version of the Cisco Systems 3825 ISR, to Lockheed Martin for the MEADS tactical operations center.

Lockheed Martin Space Systems is providing battle management and command, control, communications, computers, and intelligence capability for the NATO MEADS.

With mechanical packaging enhancements designed to suit shipboard and military shock and EMI environments, the DuraNET 3825 is designed to meet MIL-S-901D grade B shock levels and MIL-STD-461 radiated emissions requirements.

Under development by Germany, Italy, and the United States, MEADS is a mobile system that will replace the U.S. Patriot and Italian Nike Hercules anti-ballistic missile systems. It will replace Hawk and Patriot missiles in Germany.

The DuraNET 3825 combines Cisco IOS software, Catalyst Layer 2 LAN switching, and Layer 3 WAN routing into one ruggedized platform.

This Internet Protocol (IP) networking device integrates embedded security processing, memory capacity, and interfaces for the NATO MEADS.

The DuraNET 3825 subsystem comes in a rugged rackmount 2U chassis fitted with circular MIL-DTL-38999 connectors. The unit brings as many as 19 Ethernet and 10 serial ports, including dual Gigabit Ethernet WAN uplink ports, a Gigabit Ethernet Switch port, 16 10/100 Ethernet switch ports, eight asynchronous/synchronous RS-232 ports, console, and auxiliary serial ports.
