IN BRIEF: Navy to buy rugged VME chassis from Kontron for littoral combat ships, missile-defense radar

U.S. Navy shipboard electronics experts needed rugged VME chassis assemblies for an identification-friend-or-foe (IFF) system aboard Navy littoral combat ships and U.S. Coast Guard national security cutters. They found their solution from Kontron America Inc. in Poway, Calif. Kontron won a contract to provide 25 FS-1290 rugged VME chassis assemblies for embedded computing in AN/UPX-29A interrogator systems aboard littoral combat ships USS Little Rock (LCS 9) and USS Sioux City (LCS 11), as well as national security cutter USCGC Midgett (WMSL 756). Awarding the contract are officials of the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division Lakehurst, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.
