Common Mission Processor (CMP)

The CMP is an open architecture, 3U OpenVPX chassis designed for upgradability and sustainability.  The CMP is designed to meet the harshest rotary and fixed wing environmental conditions and the most stringent safety and security requirements.  The CMP provides a mission and graphics processing platform for integration of on-board sensors, data links and defensive avionics implementing software developed in accordance with the FACE™ standard.

Designed with the use of composite material and advanced Air Flow Through cooling techniques, the CMP brings an extremely lightweight and highly reliable solution for avionics integration.

Special Mission Processor (SMP)

The SMP is a highly versatile, highly integrated avionics processor designed for extreme military environments.  The SMP combines safety-critical processing, integrated graphics and video processing and Windows® based processing in a single LRU.  The SMP is qualified for MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD 461, MIL-STD-704 as well as TEMPEST and DO-178B Level A.

The SMP is designed to Open Systems Standards to allow implementation of Third-Party Software and hardware. The SMP has been deployed to enable integration of capabilities such as Common Terrain Following Radar System, Radio Frequency Countermeasure (RFCM) system, and Airborne Mission Networking (AbMN).

High Performance Embedded Processor

The Advanced Mission Computer II (AMCII) is a second generation embedded mission computer that provides critical core processing nodes as well as I/O processing and the optical network hub for interface to various subsystems throughout the aircraft.

The Integrated Core Processor (ICP) is one of the world’s smallest deployed liquid cooled, airborne super computer. The ICP provides the primary embedded computing elements capable of managing all aircraft subsystems and sensors. The ICP has the processing power to handle all sensor processing and mission planning. It is enabled with a high-speed photonic data network for low latency subsystem communications.
