Performance Technologies, a developer of communication platforms and systems, has announced that its managed platform products are to be utilized as part of Raytheon Company’s ship self-defense system Mk 2 program.
Raytheon’s ship self-defense system (SSDS) Mk 2 is a surface combat direction system with commercial off-the-shelf hardware and software that has been delivered for tactical certification. SSDS Mk 2 open architecture will advance the existing design to meet the US Navy’s open architecture computing environment (OACE) category 3 requirements. OACE is the Navy’s initiative to standardize infrastructure requirements that will permit mission-critical data to be easily transmitted between multiple systems for improved combat and operational responses.
The Performance Technologies’ IP-based platform solution will feature an intelligent shelf manager that will provide remote monitoring capabilities, and an IP-based networking platform for the SSDS system. The remote management capabilities will enable system monitoring and remote diagnostic capabilities to pinpoint any potential system problems.
Edward Bizari, vice president of marketing and sales at Performance Technologies, said: Our IP-based and remote monitoring technologies continue to fit applications where critical components are required. We look forward to continuing our long relationship with Raytheon in delivering robust and reliable solutions to meet these and other very important system configurations.
