RADISYS and LCR Electronics Collaborate on Ruggedized ATCA

RadiSys and LCR Electronics, which specializes in rugged backplane and chassis systems and other components, are collaborating to deliver ruggedized AdvancedTCA (ATCA) platform solutions to the military, aerospace and government (MAG) market segments. The collaboration is aimed at high-performance command and control (C4ISR) and secured network appliance solutions.

Ruggedized ATCA standards-based solutions provide both reliability and high performance under extreme conditions for network appliances that require high bandwidth and high performance in aircraft, ships and ground mobile equipment.

RadiSys' Promentum ATCA products are already being deployed in a multitude of communications networks under stringent reliability environments such as NEBS. The military and aerospace environments and their respective network-centric applications are similar in nature.

LCR Electronics has developed and fielded ruggedized ATCA chassis tested to, and complying with, MIL-STD-810 and MIL-STD-167 specifications making them suitable for deployment in a ruggedized environment. The two companies, working together, will deliver RadiSys' Promentum building blocks in LCR Electronics' ruggedized KBWD chassis portfolio. This collaboration has already yielded an integrated system solution on two major military programs.
