COTS Systems Reduce Design Risk

Forecasting short lead times and low development costs, GE Intelligent Platforms’ family of cost-off-the-shelf (COTS) systems suit a range of military vehicle platforms including UAVs, manned and unmanned ground vehicles, and launch vehicles. The CRS-C2P-3CC1 and CRS-C3P-3CB1 are two- and three-slot pre-validated, application-ready cPCI-based systems. They are available in a range of application-specific configurations in rugged, convection-cooled or base-plate cooled 3U chassis. The computers come standard with a Freescale-based single-board computer and VxWorks operating system. I/O includes Ethernet, serial, USB, MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429, plus discrete I/O.
