Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit, (Booth #1407) - Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, in collaboration with Harris Corporation and Green Hills Software, will present two demonstrations of COTS-based, Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE)-conformant Airborne Digital Mapping Solutions at the 2018 Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit. The demos will include both Intel® and Power Architecture® based rugged embedded solutions. These Digital Moving Map solutions simplify and speed the integration of situational awareness and high-performance digital mapping functions into embedded commercial and military avionics systems.

Both demonstrations, hosted at Curtiss-Wright’s booth (#1407), will feature Harris’s popular FliteScene Digital Moving Map software and Green Hills Software’s industry-leading INTEGRITY®-178 Time-Variant Unified Multi-Processing (tuMP™) real-time multicore operating system. One of the demos will run on Curtiss-Wright’s Power Architecture VPX3-152, a DO-254 DAL A safety-certifiable single board computer (SBC).

“We are very pleased, along with Harris and Green Hills Software, to demonstrate rugged digital mapping solutions that offers a complete FACE-conformant FliteScene software solution that must also meet the DO-254 and DO-178C DAL A assurance objectives for avionics systems,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “These digital mapping solutions eliminate the cost and design risk associated with deploying new capabilities while delivering on the promise of the FACE open avionics Technical Standard to make software systems more robust, interoperable, portable, and secure.”

Rugged OpenVPX SBCs and Graphics Modules
The Power Architecture®-based demo will feature Curtiss-Wright’s VPX3-152 SBC, a rugged 3U OpenVPX™ module. The VPX3-152, which features an NXP® QorIQ® T2080 multicore SOC, was designed from the ground up to be cost-effective and to support DO-254 DAL A safety certifiable for critical defense and aerospace avionics applications.

Both the VPX3-152 and the VPX3-1258 will be running Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY-178 tuMP, the only operating system in the world that is conformant to the FACE 2.1.1 Technical Standard and the first true multicore operating system to conform to any version of the FACE Technical Standard. INTEGRITY-178 tuMP conforms to both the FACE Safety Base and Security Profiles for the C, C++ and Ada programming languages. INTEGRITY-178 tuMP is also the only multicore operating system that meets all of the requirements defined in the current standard for ARINC-653, Supplement 4, which requires multicore operation as defined in Section 2 of the Supplement 4 standard: “Multiple processes within a partition scheduled to execute concurrently on different processor cores,” and also support “Multiple partitions scheduled to execute concurrently on different processor cores”. The INTEGRITY-178 tuMP operating system has successfully met the DO-178 DAL A certification objectives multiple times across several different multicore SOC architectures, with each SOC having a different core design. Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY-178 tuMP is the world’s most advanced and proven high-assurance multicore operating system and it is available for all of Curtiss-Wright’s DO-254 safety-certifiable products including its Power Architecture, Intel®, and Arm®-based SBCs.

“Green Hills Software is a proud partner of Curtiss-Wright, supporting all of their safety-certifiable multicore processor boards,” said Dan O'Dowd, founder and chief executive officer of Green Hills Software. “The INTEGRITY-178 tuMP innovative multicore design, service history and certification pedigree when combined with Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading safety-certifiable hardware solutions provide the civil and military aviation industry a comprehensive and trusted end-to-end solution.”

The Intel-based digital moving map solution being demonstrated will feature Curtiss-Wright’s VPX3-1258 SBC. This rugged 3U OpenVPX module features a field-proven 4th Gen Intel Core i7 (Haswell) processor. Pin-compatible with Curtiss-Wright’s previous, and also our future generations of Intel SBCs, the VPX3-1258 delivers Quad-Core (8-thread) performance at 2.4 GHz. With up to 16 GB of dual-channel high-speed ECC-protected DDR3 memory, the VPX3-1258 SBC also includes an integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 GPU, offering single-slot discrete GPU performance, or can be used with external graphics modules for additional graphics capabilities and interfaces.

The demonstrations will also feature Curtiss-Wright’s rugged VPX3-716 3U OpenVPX graphics module. The VPX3-716 is an industry-leading rugged 3U OpenVPX high performance graphics processor based on the AMD Radeon™ E8860 Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). The E8860 meets the long lifecycle availability required for military programs through the use of a suite of software drivers and 20-year component supply program. Designed for high reliability, the VPX3-716 is especially well-suited to support embedded training, moving maps, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), 360 degree situational awareness, Degraded Visual Environment (DVE) and other graphics, video and compute-intensive applications.

Curtiss-Wright also offers a DO-254 safety certifiable graphics module, the VPX3-719. This 3U OpenVPX module is ideal for avionics applications that require video capture and HD-SDI video interfaces. It supports extremely low latency video capture, graphics generation and overlay, and display output conversion. The VPX3-719’s AMD Embedded Radeon E8860 high-performance GPU is supported with up to six independent and simultaneous graphics outputs selectable from 4x DVI, 2x HD-SDI, and 2x analog RGBHV or STANAG interfaces. The module provides 2 GB of dedicated video memory, accelerating applications with complex textures and mapping data, and also supports multi-channel video capture with the ability to transfer captured video directly to the GPU memory for the lowest possible display latency.

All of Curtiss-Wright’s DO-254/DO-178C safety certifiable products including its family of Power Architecture, Intel, and Arm-based SBCs, graphics, switch and I/O modules are designed specifically to address avionics applications and are available with re-usable DO-254 design artifacts that help speed and ease the system certification process while greatly reducing program risks and costs.
