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 at 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. Parvus will supply NIITEK with the Intel Core 2 Duo-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.
NIITEK 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.
