Designers of a wide range of manned and unmanned airborne, ground and naval platforms are seeking high compute power solutions that make the least demands in terms of size, weight, and power (SWaP). Built for optimal performance over the full -40 to +71C military operating temperature range, this highly rugged mission computer requires no active cooling. It is completely sealed and features a fanless IP67 design (dust and waterproof).

Built for maximum flexibility, the mission computer’s modular design supports high cycle insertion (100,000 mates) removable storage. To ensure that their solution meets their program’s specific and unique requirements, customers can choose from a numerous add-on mini-PCIe and PCIe104 modules, which can be pre-integrated by Curtiss-Wright without traditional NRE fees. The DuraCOR 8043 delivers an ideal balance of high performance processing and small size/weight/power envelope for demanding civil and military platforms such as ground vehicles, fixed or rotary wing aircraft, and maritime platforms.
