SALT LAKE CITY, 6 March 2007. Parvus Corp. won a contract from the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) in Panama City, Fla., to develop a ruggedized version of the Cisco 3825 Integrated Services Router (ISR) for installation onboard the Navy's Littoral Combat Ship (LCS).
While complementing capabilities of the Navy's larger multi-mission surface combatants, LCS will be networked to share tactical information with other Navy aircraft, ships, submarines, and joint units.
Designed to meet MIL-STD-901D Grade B shock levels and MIL-STD-461 EMC standards, the ruggedized Cisco 3825 routers will incorporate mechanical packaging enhancements for naval military installations.
The Navy chose Parvus to couple proven commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology from Cisco Systems with Parvus's systems engineering knowledge with harsh military environments, company officials say.
