To address environmental and functional requirements of military vehicle and aircraft applications
Eurotech subsidiary Parvus has launched the DuraMAR 5915, an ultra-rugged Commercial-Off the Shelf (COTS) mobile router subsystem based on the new 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) card from Cisco Systems.
Eurotech said the new offering is optimised for Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), and is designed for MIL-810G Shock, Vibration, Thermal, Altitude, Humidity.
The DuraMAR 5915 enables prime contractors and civilian agencies to deploy Cisco Mobile Ready Net capabilities, including data, video, and voice services virtually anywhere LAN or WAN connectivity may be required, particularly in mobile, airborne, ground, manned or unmanned vehicle applications.
It couples Cisco’s latest mobile networking technology with advanced rugged enclosure design to address environmental and functional requirements of military vehicle and aircraft applications.
The DuraMAR 5915 is suited for IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness applications, including those seeking a migration path for Cisco 3200-based router subsystems.
The DuraMAR 5915 features dual WAN uplinks and is available as either a standalone 5 port (2+3) network router or with an integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch option to scale port density to 19 Ethernet Ports for higher port density application requirements; modular, open architecture rugged COTS PC104 hardware design.
With software built upon the Cisco 3270 IOS architecture, the DuraMAR 5915 supports extensive IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols, IP multicasting, Radio Aware Routing (RAR), Dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP) and Mobile IP routing for transparent connectivity to a roaming vehicle network in Comms on the Move (COTM) applications.
An onboard AES hardware encryption engine offloads encryption processing from the router to provide secure and scalable data, video, and voice services.
Leveraging stackable PC104 subassemblies and a modular enclosure design, the DuraMAR 5915 unit requires no active cooling, provides interfaces over MIL-C-38999 style connectors, and features ground/marine vehicle voltage inputs, spikes, and transient levels, as well as MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC filtering.
