Curtiss-Wright to provide mission computer for Turkish unmanned aircraft
ASHBURN, Va., 28 Sept. 2015. Signal processor experts at Sierra Nevada Corp. in Sparks, Nev., needed small-form-factor embedded computing for a Turkish unmanned aerial vehicle. They found their solution from the Curtiss-Wright Corp. Defense Solutions division in Ashburn, Va.
Sierra Nevada awarded a contract to Curtiss-Wright to supply the Parvus DuraCOR 820 small-form-factor mission computer for use in the Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) ANKA medium-altitude long endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
The Curtiss-Wright Parvus DuraCOR 820 mission computer provides processing capabilities for the ANKA UAV’s automatic take off and landing system. The ANKA provides the Turkish Armed Forces with tactical surveillance, reconnaissance, and combat missions.
The Parvus DuraCOR 820 is a rugged tactical mission processor subsystem designed for military aircraft, ground vehicles, and fixed-site applications that require small size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP).
The DuraCOR 820 complies with MIL-STD-810G environmental conditions for high altitude, extreme temperature, water, shock, vibration, and humidity). The mission computer also meets MIL-STD-461E EMI/EMC levels, and 28-volt DC avionics power supply standards per MIL-STD-704F.
Curtiss-Wright is doing the work on this contract in Salt Lake City. For more information contact Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions online at www.cwcdefense.com.
