Curtiss-Wright Corporation today announced that its Defense Solutions division, a Cisco® Systems Solution Technology Integration (STI) partner, has introduced the Parvus® DuraWORX® 10-10, one of the embedded defense and aerospace industry s first single unit SWaP-optimized subsystem solutions to combine Intel® Core i7-based processing and a Cisco 5915 Internetwork Operating System (IOS)-managed defense-secure network router in a single subsystem. This Commercial-Off the Shelf (COTS) modular and scalable platform is designed for optimal performance in extended temperature, high shock & vibration environments. It provides system designers with a scalable, all-in-one computing appliance that simplifies the integration of tactical computing, IP networking and situational awareness applications, while significantly reducing SWaP and enabling Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) consolidation.
The DuraWORX 10-10 uniquely delivers new levels of computing and communications capabilities for mobile, airborne, ground vehicle applications operating at the tactical network edge. It s designed to support C4ISR command and control, image processing and surveillance requirements while aggregating peripheral devices (cameras, sensors, computers) from external and embedded IP networks into a manageable, highly secure IP network. The DuraWORX 10-10 extends the Cisco enterprise networking infrastructure beyond the reach of traditional fixed networks into mobile and embedded systems applications.
Today s military system integrators have two seemingly contradictory challenges: deploy more networked intelligent capabilities for the warfighter and reduce the space, weight, power and cost of those systems, said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. Our new DuraWORX 10-10, with its high performance mission computer and Cisco IOS network router housed in a single compact chassis, offers system integrators a means to achieve both goals without compromising performance or budget.
Cisco congratulates our STI partner Curtiss-Wright for its innovative new DuraWORX 10-10 rugged subsystem that uniquely combines Cisco embedded services router and switch technology with a Curtiss-Wright mission processor system in a modular SWaP-optimized package, said Dan Kent, Cisco CTO for the U.S. public sector. Curtiss-Wright is a market leader in delivering Cisco IOS-based solutions that meet the special requirements of prime defense contractors and civil agencies seeking to deploy data, video, and voice services in demanding tactical vehicle and aircraft applications.
