United States : CURTISS-WRIGHT announces launch of PARVUS® DURAWORX® 10-10

August 26, 2014

Curtiss-Wright Corporation has announced that its Defense Solutions division, a Cisco® Systems Solution Technology Integration (STI) partner, has launched the Parvus® DuraWORX® 10-10, one of the first single unit SWaP-optimized subsystem solutions in the embedded defense and aerospace sector to integrate 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 has been developed for optimal performance in extended temperature, high shock & vibration environments. It offers system designers a scalable, all-in-one computing appliance that simplifies the consolidation of tactical computing, IP networking and situational awareness applications, while considerably reducing SWaP and allowing Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) integration.

The DuraWORX 10-10 uniquely provides new levels of computing and communications capabilities for mobile, airborne, ground vehicle applications running at the tactical network edge.

Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division, Lynn Bamford, said : "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. 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."

Dan Kent, Cisco CTO for the U.S. public sector, added : "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. 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."
