Rugged Chassis recently deployed in Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense testing.

Since 1972, US-based Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions has been an innovative leader in system architecture for computing platforms. The company announces that the U.S. military and Lockheed Martin recently deployed custom versions of the 709 Series of air-cooled rugged Electronic Enclosures in tests with the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense system.

Electronic Enclosures feature configurable, customizable design

Ideal for applications in harsh military and missile testing environments, the 709 Series of Electronic Enclosures is a durable rack-mount Rugged Chassis equipped with features to improve mean time to repair ( MTTR), while the system's major components are configured as Line Replaceable Units (LRU's) to maximize customizability. The standard 709 Series Rugged Chassis model accommodates up to 20 slots for VME64, VME64x, VXS, VPX, VXI, or CompactPCI cards, and ranges in size from 8U to 15U high and 20.5 inches deep. Available in AC/DC or multiple-output power configurations of up to 2000W, the 709 Series of Electronic Enclosures can also be configured with three different cooling options: pressurized, evacuation, or combination push/pull. Optional engineered solutions to maximize function and performance in extreme environments include a front mounted LCD display, system health monitoring unit, and custom configured I/O.

Durable Rugged Chassis withstands harsh military environments

Featuring either overlapping bolted or welded construction, the EIA rack-mountable 709 Series of Electronic Enclosures is engineered to meet military specifications for shock and vibration including Mil-S-901, Mil-Std-810, Mil-Std-167, Mil-Std-704 and Mil-Std-461 standards. Embedded inside the 709 Series, COTS cards are isolated from contaminants, shock and vibration typically found in harsh deployed environments. The 709 Series of Electronic Enclosures can be optionally configured to include an internal card cage shock isolation system and meet drip-proof and splash-proof requirements. The Rugged Chassis can also be outfitted with shock isolated peripheral bays and can be configured to meet the highest EMI requirements.

Electronic Enclosure selected for Lockheed Martin system

The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense system detects, tracks and intercepts ballistic missiles from the sea. A world leader in systems integration and in the development of air and missile defense systems and technologies, Lockheed Martin selected an Electronic Enclosure from Carlo Gavazzi Computing Solutions that was custom configured for the application and designed to withstand extreme shock and vibration.
