Vetronics processing and network switch for military ground vehicles introduced by Curtiss-Wright
ASHBURN, Va., 7 Nov. 2014. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the Ground Control System (GCS) processing and network switch subsystem for use with the U.S. Army Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) standard vetronics architecture.
The integrated commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) GCS combines rugged processing and Gigabit Ethernet networking to modernize legacy and future military ground vehicles.
The subsystem is based on the small-form-factor 3U OpenVPX embedded computing standard, and is part of Curtiss-Wright's family of multi-platform mission computers.
It has 3U OpenVPX fire control processor, Ethernet switch, and power supply modules packaged in one, easily upgradeable rugged enclosure. This complete hardware and software solution is for fire control, turret control, weapons control, and vehicle control applications.
VICTORY is the U.S. Department of Defense mandated approach for eliminating stovepiped vetronics architectures and increase interoperability. The GCS has been compliance tested as a VICTORY shared processing unit.
