Curtiss-Wright Combines Quad-Core 6th Gen “Skylake” Intel® Mobile Xeon® Processing and Cisco® 5915 Embedded Services Router in Compact System

Version 2


    Designed for deployed air, ground and maritime platforms, new DuraWORX 8043 delivers 32 GB of ECC DDR4 memory and Intel Iris™ Pro Graphics GPU with Cisco IO Router


    HELI-EXPO 2017 (Booth #8751), DALLAS, TX – March 7, 2017 – – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division today introduced its newest multi-function computing and networking subsystem, the small form factor DuraWORX® 8043.  The rugged, compact system uniquely combines the power of the latest 6th gen “Skylake” Intel Xeon E3-based processor (with Error-Correcting Code memory) and Cisco 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) networking technology. Designed to reduce C4ISR system integration challenges (thermal, cabling, power, installation) for tactical computing, IP networking and situational awareness applications, the DuraWORX 8043 reduces platform LRU count to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) burdens in ground vehicle, fixed wing or rotary aircraft, maritime platforms. The unit enables system designers to deploy high performance Intel Mobile Xeon computing architecture and Cisco Systems IOS network routing into embedded computing applications that must perform in harsh temperature, shock, vibration, altitude, dust, water environmental and EMI conditions. It’s ideal for use in outdoor, underground or other demanding embedded computing environments that require connectivity to IP-enabled equipment such as on-board computers, cameras, sensors, radios, satcom modems, monitoring devices, and command-and-control gear.
