SOSA-aligned 3U VPX avionics mission computer for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters introduced by Mercury

June 13, 2022
With Intel Core i7 safety-certifiable processors, AMMP delivers 40x more performance than today's systems, while drawing 50 percent less power.

ANDOVER, Mass. – Mercury Systems Inc. in Andover, Mass., is introducing the Avionics Modular Mission Platform (AMMP) SOSA aligned, DAL-certifiable, 3U OpenVPX mission computer for fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, ground stations, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The 3U VPX AMMP adheres to the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA) open-systems embedded computing standard, and is safety-certifiable to Design Assurance Levels (DAL).

Featuring the latest Intel Core i7 safety-certifiable processors, AMMP delivers as much as 40x more performance than current-generation avionics computers while drawing 50 percent less power.

Mercury's modular scalable mission computer uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine automation to help improve decision accuracy and response times for aircraft pilots.

Mercury's AMMP supports real-time safety-critical applications such as mission management, sensor fusion and processing, surveillance, and 5G communications.

The computer comes with Mercury's BuiltSAFE commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) multi-core single board computers, avionics I/O, video processing, and software.

The AMMP comes with ARINC-429 Avionics I/O to capture and distribute HD video. Its configurable 3U boards can run several mixed-safety workloads, and the system runs Green Hills, Lynx and Linux software board support packages.
