The ROCK-3 series of systems are small form factor, scalable, modular , rugged, pre-integrated, Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) systems optimized for C4ISR applications such as a
- Mission Computer
- Display Processor
- Video Image Processor
- Data Recorder
- I/O Signal Concentrator
- Communications Controller
Based on VNX (VITA 74) the ROCK-3 provides a smaller, lighter, less power hungry cousin to the ROCK-2 family and communicates seamlessly with it. The ROCK-3 mission computer family extends ability of the system architect to deploy the right compute power at the right Size, Weight and Power (Swap) for any deployment. These ROCK-2 and ROCK-3 families provide the system designer with the widest continuum of safety certifiable mission computer products on the market.
A scalable architecture
Extensible from single module to entire complex system, or system of subsystems, VNX provides the ability to create required computing solutions for any deployment including distributed and/or redundant topologies. CES has designed a family of VNX enclosures for the ROCK-3 with varying numbers of board capacity to support compute requirements for a wide variety of mission computers.
Because safety matters
Similar to the ROCK-2, the ROCK-3 will provide a straightforward path to DO-178 and other safety certifications. Even if you don’t need to provide safety certification, why would you trust your mission to a design that wasn’t done to that level of engineering?
