CAMBRIDGE, England, 5 Feb. 2009. Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing in Cambridge, England, is introducing the military VME Cougar radar input and scan converter military board product, which provides an open standards approach for capturing, converting, and mixing radar video in military radar applications.

The two-slot Cougar defense embedded computing system can implement a wide range of radar input/scan conversion configurations with four PMC/XMC expansion slots to host the user-selected mix of mezzanine modules appropriate for their particular application.

Available mezzanine modules include Curtiss-Wright's Osiris B radar video input card, XMC-710 video capture and graphics display card, Eagle-2 radar scan conversion module, and an optional PMC-659 mixer card.

The Cougar military VME bus board uses the Intel Core 2 Duo-based host single board computer; Windows or Linux software support; a range of ruggedization levels including air-cooled and conduction-cooled ; and sampling rates as fast as 50 MHz on each of two analog inputs, which can be mixed with as many as eight digital radar inputs.
