6U VME64x Airborne Computer

The 6U VME64x Airborne Computer is a single slot, 64-bit PowerPC-based computing system with a wide variety of inputs and outputs as well as multi-function interfaces. The Airborne Computer host board uses a dual-core NXP MPC8640D processor and provides three Gigabit Ethernet channels, two serial UARTs, NAND and NOR flash memory.

Two companion XMC adapters provide multiple I/O options. As standard, the first companion XMC adapter provides two dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553B channels, nine ARINC 429 channels (six input and three output), four RS-232/422/485 channels and 2 MByte of Parallel Non-Volatile Random Access Memory (NVRAM). The second companion XMC adapter provides the modern Xilinx Artix-7 series FPGA which is configured with a dual-channel high-speed 160 MSps Analog-to-Digital converter, eight RS-422/485 channels and 32 Low Voltage Transistor-Transistor Logic (LVTTL) I/O signals routed to the backplane connector, as well as eight SMD LED signals from the User FPGA. This FPGA is user-programmable.

The 6U VME64x Airborne Computer will also be available with a quad-core NXP T2080 or T4080 processor.

Naval Mission Systems

CI Systems Naval Mission Systems are custom designed to meet the unique requirements of the user and its vessels. We provide a complete solution including Operations Room and Bridge layout design, custom Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room console design and ergonomic layout of equipment to provide safe, effective and efficient operation of the vessel.

We can also provide mockups of the ship Operations Room and Bridge consoles, or of the entire Operations Room and Bridge spaces including bulkheads and windows, to allow an ergonomic assessment of the design prior to manufacturing and assembly.

CI Systemss Operations Rooms and Bridges are designed to comply with international standards for warship design :

  • Stainless Steel or LRTP materials for Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room consoles
  • Stainless Steel or LRTP materials for Navigation Bridges
  • Ergonomic Design of Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room consoles
  • IMO Guide for Bridge and Equipment/Systems Design
  • International Association of Classification Societies Standard for Bridge Design, Equipment and Arrangement
  • IMO Guidelines on Ergonomic Criteria for Bridge Equipment and Layout
Our Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room console designs range from commercial marine standard to fully MIL-SPEC qualified ruggedised equipment. We design and manufacture our Mission Systems to meet the user's specific needs and concept of operations.

CI Systems and its suppliers will procure and integrate a complete range of navigation sensors and other mission system equipment that meet all classification and user requirements.

CI Systems offer either full naval navigation solutions based on a proven Naval Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS-Warship) or based on an IMO-certified commercial ECDIS charting system.

As a Naval Mission Systems integrator we are able to select the best of industry technology from a wide variety of local and international equipment suppliers to meet the user's needs. We ensure that all of the selected equipment will operate in an integrated Operations Room and Bridge system solution as well as is optimally supportable throughout its lifespan.

Multifunction Naval Console (MNC)

CI Systems offers standard commercial operator consoles or custom units to meet the user's specific requirements. Our products are designed to commercial marine standards or to full military standards.

CI Systems will work with the user to analyse the physical space constraints for the consoles and equipment suite and design an integrated console that optimises the operator station ergonomics. Rapid prototyping of the design for MIL-STD 1472 Human Factors evaluation can be provided as well as mockups for operational evaluation and training. We will also carry out sightline studies for IMO bridges and complete bridge space arrangement mockups.

When consoles are provided as part of a complete integrated vessel mission system, we will optimise the operator interfaces for both video and physical human machine input (HMI) devices to provide seamless operation between different operator modes.

CI Systems offers a complete turnkey solution for all the user's operator console needs, from operational concept, equipment selection, ergonomic analysis, prototyping, engineering design, production, integration, acceptance testing and qualification.

Our Multifunction Naval Consoles can be used for Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room operator consoles and are designed to comply with international standards for warship design :

  • Stainless Steel or Lightweight Reinforced Thermoplastic (LRTP) materials for Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room consoles
  • Stainless Steel or LRTP materials for Navigation Bridges
  • Ergonomic Design of Operations Room, Bridge and Machinery Control Room consoles
  • IMO Guide for Bridge and Equipment/Systems Design
  • International Association of Classification Societies Standard for Bridge Design, Equipment and Arrangement
  • IMO Guidelines for Ergonomic Criteria for Bridge Equipment and Layout

Mechanical Housing Assemblies

The Mechanical Housing Assembly (MHA) is a versatile, rugged enclosure for Single Board Computer (SBC) based embedded systems, as used in varied Military, Naval and Industrial applications. We manufacture both air- and conduction-cooled MHAs which can be configured for use with standard 3U or 6U CompactPCI, VME, VPX or other custom backplanes.

Universal Fibre Hub (UFH)

The Universal Fibre Hub (UFH) is a multi-format I/O signal concentrator and redistribution unit. It is highly configurable and is suitable for use in a wide range of I/O monitoring and control applications.

Remote Video Monitoring System (RVMS)

The Remote Video Monitoring System (RVMS) allows a user to view and capture images from remote locations where there is no electrical power or terrestrial communications infrastructure.

FDDI to Ethernet Bridge (Shortform Specification, A4 and Letter)

The FDDI to Ethernet Router interconnects Fibre Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) and Ethernet Local Area Networks (LANs).

It also provides for host access to the FDDI and Ethernet network segments for communication and management purposes.

Universal Tracking Platform (UTP)

The Universal Tracking Platform (UTP) provides an integrated solution for monitoring and reporting the geographic position, movement parameters and internal health of a vehicle, or any entity capable of movement.

Helicopter Take-off and Landing System (HTLS)

The Helicopter Take-off and Landing System (HTLS) assists in the take-off, landing and flying operations of the ship-borne helicopter by measuring and displaying weather conditions and ships 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. It displays live video from cameras on the flight deck to aid the operator in landing the helicopter. The HTLS also provides for recording of data as well as for training of the helicopter landing crew. 

Platform Management Systems (PMS)

The Platform Management System (PMS) is an integrated vessel control and monitoring system, providing centralised management of sub-systems by means of a computer network. Access to the functions of the PMS is via a man-machine interface, using a graphical environment to display information effectively. 

Information Management System (IMS)

The Information Management System (IMS) is a ship-borne network, based on SAFENET, that manages the transfer of time-critical command and control messages, multimedia streams and background file transfer from many sources to many destinations. The IMS architecture supports unicast, broadcast and reliable multicast data transfer types. It also provides for network synchronisation and message timestamping as well as sophisticated built-in test and network management.
