C≤I≤ Systems offers a range of Systems and Board-Level Products for mission-critical and real-time applications.

The SA Navyís new Valour-class light frigates are being outfitted with C≤I≤ Systemsís Navigation Distribution System and Tracker Radar Console.

C≤I≤ Systemsís range of board-level FDDI data communications products is being used in the latest NATO AWACS aircraft; the latest US Navyís aircraft carrier, the USS Ronald Reagan; the US Navy's latest class of combat ships, the San Antonio class of amphibious assault vessels; the Swedish Navyís Visby-class corvettes and various German Navy ships.

Navigation Distribution System (NDS)

The Navigation Distribution System (NDS) is a dual- redundant, real-time distribution system for ship sensor data. The NDS consists of two Navigation Processor Units (NPUs) which receive and relay inertial and navigation data. The NDSís replicated design, as well as its distributed hardware and software architecture, ensure a high level of reliability and freedom from any single point of failure.

Tracker Radar Console (TRC)

The Tracker Radar Console (TRC) provides a sophisticated, graphically-orientated, human-machine interface for tracking radars such as the RTS 6400 Optronics Radar Tracker (ORT). The system simultaneously displays tracking video from several ORT sensors and overlays high-resolution graphics and symbology to facilitate searching for and tracking of targets by the operator, as well as weapons firing.

Helicopter Take-Off and Landing System (HTLS)

The HTLS assists in the take-off, landing and flying operations of the ship-borne helicopter, by measuring and displaying environmental conditions and shipís motion data. The HTLS allows the operator to set maximum values for the parameters of roll, pitch and heave and determines when it is safe for the helicopter to take-off and land, also accounting for the combat situation.

Board-Level Products (BLP)

C≤I≤ Systemsís range of PMC Network Interface Cards (NICs) is ideally suited to real-time embedded platforms and features a wide range of compatible and qualified software drivers.

Conduction-cooled (CC) versions of the boards are especially suited for harsh environments with high temperature, shock and vibration levels.

NICs are available in the following versions :

Conduction-Cooled (CC)

(-40 C to +85 C)
(-15 C to +75 C)
( 0 C to +55 C)
