MELBOURNE, Fla., 29 Sept. 2016. Harris Corp. (NYSE:HRS) and Boeing (NYSE:BA) are developing next-generation avionics technology for current and future military aircraft to improve and protect aviators’ missions.
Harris and Boeing are collaborating on advanced core mission processing architectures, including the mission processor that manages many of an aircraft’s critical capabilities, including communications, sensors, navigation, and displays.
Harris will produce the collaborative design for this common processing hardware that, when integrated with Boeing Secure Computing Solution hardware, Boeing Phantom Fusion mission software, and a multi-level communication network, will help set the standard in modern mission computing, company officials say.
Harris will apply its expertise in custom-designed, high-speed interfaces, advanced security, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) processors, and advanced military-quality packaging to deliver high-performance, scalable mission-processing hardware based on an open-systems architecture.
“Our core processor hardware adapts to the mission needs of any military aircraft in a cost-effective way,” says Harris Electronic Systems President Ed Zoiss. “We will use our expertise in ruggedized, high-performance COTS hardware to provide the processing power and cross-platform applicability needed for mission success.”
Harris Corp. is a technology provider helping solve customers’ toughest mission-critical challenges by providing solutions that connect, inform, and protect. Harris supports customers in more than 100 countries and has approximately $7.5 billion in annual revenue and 21,000 employees worldwide. The company is organized into four business segments: Communication Systems, Space and Intelligence Systems, Electronic Systems, and Critical Networks.
