ASHBURN, Va., 25 July 2014. The Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va., is introducing an enhanced Parvus DuraMAR 5915 rugged mobile IP router subsystem for network switching in deployed military and commercial aerospace embedded computing applications such as tactical ground vehicles, helicopters, and fixed wing aircraft.

The new version of the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) SWaP-C optimized DuraMAR 5915 has an integrated Cisco ESS 2020 Gigabit Ethernet switch.

The 23-port (2x Routed, 21x Switched) Parvus DuraMAR 5915 (2X series) reduces power consumption while delivering expanded port count by combining a Cisco 5915 embedded services router and a Cisco ESS 2020 Ethernet switch in one line replaceable unit (LRU). The DuraMAR 5915 also can reduce user training requirements.

Designed for use in harsh conditions, the rugged, compact unit is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G, MIl-STD-461F, MIL-STD-1275, MIL-STD-704F, and RTCA/DO-160G standards.

The DuraMAR 5915 enables system integrators to deploy Cisco mobile ready net capabilities, including data, video, and voice services, virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required, especially in mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle and sensor applications.
