Designed for a wide range of demanding applications and platforms, such as unmanned systems, that require an extremely size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) optimized mission computer, Curtiss-Wright's DuraCOR 311 Mission Computer combines 64-bit quad-core Intel “Baytrail” Atom™ modular mission processing capabilities with integrated Intel HD graphics in a lightweight, ultra-small form factor rugged design. The new ultra-small mission computer weighs less than 1.5 lb and is less than 40 cubic inches in size - a fraction of the size/weight of traditional mission computers. Today, system integrators increasingly demand more and more processing power in the smallest possible rugged system envelope.
The DuraCOR 311 comes with a full complement of standard I/O interfaces (including USB, Ethernet, Serial, DIO, Video, and Audio). I/O expansion is supported by three Mini-PCIe expansion slots and the broad ecosystem of rugged COTS Mini-PCIe modules (including MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 avionics databus interfaces). The DuraCOR 311 also features MIL-performance circular connectors and a fully dust and waterproof chassis. It is pre-validated through extensive environmental, power, and EMI compliance testing per MIL-STDs and DO-160. Both systems are designed to meet the demanding MIL-STD-810G, MIL-STD-461F, MIL-STD-1275D, MIL-STD-704F and RTCA/DO-160G environmental, power and EMI standards.
