Curtiss-Wright’s DuraWORX 10-10 combines Intel Core i7-based processing and a Cisco 5915 in single system

Curtiss-Wright Corporation   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 is targeted 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.

The DuraWORX 10-10 integrates the capabilities of Curtiss-Wright's DuraCOR 80-40  mission computer and DuraMAR 5915  network router line replaceable unit (LRU) subsystems in a single highly rugged enclosure. Parvus DuraNET 30-2020  or DuraNET 20-10  Ethernet switches can also be integrated in the system to increase Ethernet port count and add managed Layer 2 switching capabilities.

The DuraWORX 10-10 is highly scalable and easily expandable. Options include support for DuraNET Ethernet switching and system expansion via PCIe104 I/O cards for payload specific interfaces (e.g. MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, CANbus, Video frame grabber, etc.). Application engineering services are available for modified COTS (M-COTS) configurations at minimal/no NRE for pre-integration of PCIe/104 I/O cards.
