ASHBURN, Va., 1 Oct. 2015. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions Division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the Parvus DuraWORX mission computer and Cisco IOS network router for embedded computing in ships, aircraft, and ground vehicles operating at the tactical network edge.

The quad-core 4th gen Intel Core i7 based DuraWORX 80-41 comes in a fanless and waterproof IP67 small-form-factor chassis, which not only reduces size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP), but also eliminates the need for individual processing, switching, and network router subsystems.

The DuraWORX 80-41 has a managed secure Cisco 5915 embedded services router (ESR), and can resist the effects of extended temperatures, dust, water, humidity, high shock and vibration, and extreme electro-magnetic interference.

The rugged mission computer meets MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, DO-160G, MIL-STD-704F, MIL-STD-1275D, and CE Mark. The box can support C4ISR command and control, image processing, and surveillance requirements, while aggregating cameras, sensors, and computers.

It features IPv4/IPv6 routing protocols, firewall and intrusion detection functionality, encryption per AES/NSA Suite B, remote VoIP phone services, and Mobile Ad Hoc network (MANET) routing for on-demand network connectivity to UHF/VHF/Wi-Fi/tactical radio.

The system integrates Curtiss-Wright's small-form-factor Parvus DuraCOR 80-41 computer and DuraMAR 5915 router products into one chassis. The LRU also adds options for Parvus DuraNET-based Ethernet switching and PCI Express/104 I/O card-based expansion for MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, CANbus, and Video frame grabber.

Options include Cisco IOS or Vitesse CE Services-based network switch to increase Ethernet port count and add managed Layer 2 switching capabilities.
