05 May 08. Quantum3D, Inc. introduced the Sentiris 5140 XMC mezzanine card. This product is thenewest member of the Sentiris family of COTS graphics modules, which is designed for use in general computing applications as well as air, ground and maritime vehicles. The new Sentiris model is a continuation of Quantum3D’s commitment to high-performance, portable computing solutions for military and civilian applications.

06 May 08. Raytheon Company’s Surface Launched Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile successfully completed its first acquisition and tracking mission March 3, marking the first phase of system field testing at White Sands Missile Range, N.M. This phase of the system field test included government-provided targets, which were used to complete five planned mission runs. The mission system configuration consisted of two integrated fire control stations, two fire units, two SLAMRAAM sensors and a sensor emulator.

01 May 08. Rockwell Collins has delivered the 25,000th ARC-210 radio to the U.S. military. The ARC-210 is now fielded on more than 180 platforms worldwide and is operating in more than 40 countries. Domestically, ARC-210s are installed in a wide range of aircraft and helicopters across all the U.S. military services and the U.S. Coast Guard. The ARC-210 provides two-way, multi-mode voice and data communications over a 30 to 512 MHz frequency range. It also includes embedded Ultra High Frequency and Very High Frequency anti-jam waveforms and other data link and secure communications features, providing the user with total battlefield interoperability and high-performance capabilities in the transfer of data, voice and imagery.

May 08. ACT/Technico offers the VME RAIDStor, a single-slot 6U network attached storage (NAS) blade that provides the same automatic, transparent data replication and re-sync of traditional box-level RAID storage modules in a more compact footprint. With network access for up to 18 slots (up to 1/2 terabyte per slot) in a 19″ chassis, the SATA-based VME RAIDStor is suitable for use throughout many industries in a number of high availability, data intensive applications including message processing, network-centric military environments, redundant self-hosted Web servers or storage repositories as well as transaction processing and logging. The blade can be configured in a single-star topology where the VME RAIDStor is connected to one network, or in dual-star where two networks are present, providing completely redundant network paths as well as port failover services enabled or disabled with a single command for continuous system availability. The VME RAIDStor, which comes in either conduction- or convection-cooled versions, is configurable to RAID level 0 (data stripping) for increased capacity performance as well as RAID level 1 (data mirroring) for data redundancy and availability. Dual PMC-mounted solid state flash SATA drives and an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C enables the VME RAIDStor to operate effectively in rugged environments.
