Thanks to ever increasing semiconductor integration and creative engineering, more subsystems functionality can be squeezed into a single compact system than ever before. Military vehicles are taking advantage by combining modular systems. Some embedded subsystems can now support I/O expansion combined with network processing, Ethernet switching, and IP traffi c routing in a single box..
Merging Computing and Comms to Address Military Vehicle SWaP Requirements
The military has a strong directive when it comes to military electronics – reduce SWaP. Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) is a major driving force behind the development of modern computer equipment destined for the battlefi eld. Whether the computing device is worn by the soldier or mounted in a vehicle, the size, weight and power of the device is critical for determining its effectiveness for the warfighter.

Lockheed Martin relies on the DuraNET 3825 from Parvus Corporation to provide network connectivity for the NATO MEADS program. The ruggedized Cisco router from Parvus was selected because it combines the powerful features available in Cisco IOS® software, Catalyst® Layer 2 LAN switching, and flexible Layer 3 WAN routing into a single ruggedized platform.NATO Missile Defense Program Deploys Rugged Routers - DuraNET 3825
Parvus creates cockpit display systems for the P-8A Poseidon aircraft that can withstand any environmental challenge to meet the Navy’s stringent requirements. By combining the proven durability of Parvus’ DuraCOR mission computer with its legacy COTS Multi-Function Display, Parvus provides Boeing with rugged display systems that can meet future mission requirements.Rugged Displays for Boeing P-8 Poseidon Maritime Mission Aircraft (MMA) - DuraVIS 4300 & DuraVIS 3006
Parvus develops the Aurora Common Mission Computer for Aurora Flight Sciences that provides a robust computing solution, meets stringent military requirements, and withstands different environments encountered by various UAVs. By leveraging COTS technology, Parvus provided a computing platform to improve efficiency and sustain future growth.
