Designers at Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems in Marietta, Ga., are choosing PC Card memory from the Raymond Engineering Operations of Kaman Aerospace Corp. in Middletown, Conn., for the global map system in the C-130J cargo turboprop. Raymond`s PC card memory system, based on Flash memory, is called the Sentinel Enhanced Mass Memory Unit (EMMU). Initial production calls for 53 systems and 104 Sentinel memory cards. The EMMU, a growth version of the Raymond Model 9510 SCSI data transfer system, accommodates two Sentinel Type III Flash memory cards and includes an intelligent high-speed SCSI interface. Each card weighs less than four ounces and can provide as much memory as 300 megabytes. - J.K.
