DSEI 2015: Kontron Showcases Versatile Line of Rugged HPEC, OpenVPX, Modular Building Block and Application-Ready Computing Platforms

Kontron, a global market leader for embedded computing technology (ECT), delivers feature-rich advanced products for mil-aero applications proven in harsh environment. Kontron’s decades of experience in engineering high-performance, mission critical computers gives defence system developers a great blend of both COTS and specialised systems design that can be custom-tailored to meet the most demanding requirements.

Kontron is also taking leading role as a driving force enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). On 15 September, from 1500-1530h, Vincent Chuffart, Product Portfolio Manager at Kontron, presents: Computing meets the IoT.

At DSEI, Kontron, on booth S3-285, shows defence system benefits achieved through decades of experience engineering rugged, high-performance mission critical computers:

  • New highly-integrated 3U VPX SBC, the VX3058, integrates the advanced 8-core version of the Intel Xeon-D processor and features Dual 10 GbE, PCIe 3.0 and high speed DDR4 memory, 
  • Turn-key VX3058-based Kontron StarVX HPEC platform enables workload consolidation into a single rugged server using parallel virtual machine (VM) execution to meet exploding compute-intensive system demands,
  • COBALT system platform provides a versatile modular, building block solution for evolving defence programme requirements, 
  • TRACe HMI is adaptable, EN50155-certified and fanless panel PC display that delivers maximum interoperability for on-board military computers, 
  • Large rugged standards-based portfolio of application-ready VME, VPX and Computer-on-Module platforms, and 
  • Live demos of COBALT rugged box-level platform running advanced situational awareness in mission-critical systems, Rackmount CompactPCI supporting common LRU’s resulting in reduced TCO, and SYMKLOUD cloud infrastructure platform for virtualisation applications in below-deck naval systems.
