ASHBURN, Va. – Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions in Ashburn, Va., is introducing the VPX3-673 assured position, navigation, and timing (PNT) high-performance single-board computer to provide PNT services on military ground vehicles and related vetronics.
These commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based modules and line-replaceable unit (LRU) solutions are for system integrators seeking to deploy PNT services to ground vehicles operating in GPS-denied environments rapidly and cost-effectively.
The rugged VPX3-673 will deliver a GPS receiver (SAASM GB-GRAM Type II, upgradeable to M-Code), chip scale atomic clock (CSAC), and an on-board inertial measurement unit (IMU) to eliminate the need for several in-platform boxes or bolt-on technologies to field navigation warfare capabilities.
Curtiss-Wright also announced an enhanced version of the company's DBH-672 Digital Beachhead integrated rugged LRU to add support for a GPS receiver (SAASM GB-GRAM Type II, upgradeable to M-Code), CSAC, and IMU to the earlier model's built-in VICTORY infrastructure switch and shared processor unit features.
These PNT products are SWaP-optimized for combat and tactical wheeled vehicles. Curtiss-Wright's PNT solutions meet legacy GPS distribution requirements and are compatible with standard DAGR accessories, such as RA-1/RA-2 antennas, crypto variable fill cables, and all serial interface cables.
They are designed to support legacy and future technology, including interfacing to mission equipment, as well as anti-jam antenna and tactical communications.
