Budget limitations and cost-cutting mandates have led governments to adopt an Open systems standards approach with the goal of enhancing innovation and competition while streamlining deployments.
Using modular open systems architecture technologies allows developers to re-use components across multiple platforms and applications. It also lets defense program managers adapt quicker and be more responsive to integrating new technologies or satisfying updated user requirements.
Kontron is committed to meeting Open Systems Architecture challenges in defense systems with our participation in standards activities such as the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA™) Consortium and by engineering advanced products.
ANSI-VITA46 VPX is the widely used standard for cost-effective 10Gb Ethernet and PCI-Express networked systems as well as for Rugged and Long Life Cycle applications
After 35 years, VME still remains an ideal architecture for mission-critical applications requiring high reliability and extended life cycles
COMe form factors basic (125x95), compact (95x95) and mini (84x55) with common PICMG pin-out types 6, 7, 10
