SAN JOSE, Calif., 4 Aug. 2008 Officials at Quantum3D, Inc. and Alta Data Technologies in Rio Rancho, N.M., today announced the successful validation testing of Quantum3D's newest Thermite tactical visual computer to the SAE AS15531 MIL-STD-1553, AS4111 Remote Terminals (RT) Validation Test Plan.
Thermite 3, which uses Alta's embedded 1553 core technology, AltaCore-1553, is a field-embedded visual computing system for military and other rugged vehicle systems. Test Systems Inc., of Phoenix performed the test.
"Quantum3D reviewed the 1553 marketplace and determined Alta's product to be the best fit for our customers who demand a proven, full featured MIL-STD-1553 network interface and support toolset," says Alan Simmonds, vice president of engineering at Quantum3D in San Jose, Calif. "The AltaCore-1553 and AltaAPI application program interface tool kit, was easily integrated into our FPGA chip and system design to provide our customer an advanced, yet easy to use 1553 development environment. Alta's RT Protocol Validation Software, AltaRTVal, saved man weeks in test preparation and was instrumental in a successful, first visit test for the Quantum3D Thermite product,".
Quantum3D is currently selling Thermite 3 systems to military and civilian customers. Alta currently sells and supports the AltaCore and its full line of 1553 and ARINC interface cards, analyzer software, and RT Protocol Validation software.
