Curtiss-Wright Corporation (Ashburn, VA) announced that its Defense Solutions division has introduced a new fully integrated 5-slot 3U OpenVPX™ rugged mission computer designed to quickly deploy computer power on defense and aerospace platforms. The MPMC-9355-0002 Multi-Platform Mission Computer can be readily configured with up to four 2.1 GHz VPX3-1257 3U OpenVPX™ single board computers (SBCs), each of which features a quad-core 3rd Generation Intel® Core™i7 processor. The MPMC’s SBCs are flexibly connected using a fully managed Layer 2 Ethernet switch and a PCIe backplane infrastructure. The integral VPX3-652 Ethernet switch supports up to eight external Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) connections for inter-system communication.

This flexible mission computer can be “personalized” with a wide array of module options via each of the SBC’s onboard PMC/XMC expansion sites. The MPMC-9355-0002 can also be configured to support high performance graphics displays by integrating an optional VPX3-716 graphics engine that can drive up to four independent displays. Power is provided by a 3-phase 115 VAC power supply.
