Using MCOTS: Creating the Perfect Module for Any Requirement
March 02, 2016Download PDF
Curtiss-Wright recently engaged with a customer that required custom backplane requirements for a new mission computer based on 3U VPX hardware. Their goal with this new system was to further reduce size, weight, and power (SWaP) in their next-gen mission computers, as well as be able to bid into Foreign Military Sales (FMS). This requires Trusted Boot and other Trust Architecture features not supported on their legacy systems. Not only that, our customer wanted to be able to add their own functionality to the system, and needed a specific backplane PCI Express (PCIe) configuration that differed from those available on our standard product.
Our customer received state-of-the-art VPX3-133 SWaP-optimized modules modified to meet all their custom requirements. In addition, Curtiss-Wright takes schedule very seriously, and ensured the delivery of these modules met our customer’s time to market requirements. The support, relationship, and attention to detail we provided went over and above any of the competition. Our customer continues to have no issues with their hardware. Curtiss-Wright partners very closely with this company and continues to work with this customer to bid this mission computer into fast jet platforms.
