Advanced Design Updates Navy Operational Readiness Test System and Outdated Technology
Yorba Linda, CA, October 17, 2013… IXI Technology, an established leader in the Aerospace, Defense, Industrial and Telecommunications Industry, today announces the introduction of its IXI Technology Data Display Computer (SDDC™). The SDDC is a rugged general-purpose computer designed to meet harsh environmental conditions. The SDDC has passed rigorous military and industrial test requirements for environmental conditions, design and safety, including electromagnetic interference (EMI), and is ready for immediate orders.
In addition to industrial and general military applications, the SDDC is a direct replacement for the OJ-454(V)/UYK Data Display Console and ORTSNET workstation used in the Aegis Operational Readiness Test System (ORTS). In this configuration, the SDDC runs ORTS Network Emulation Terminal (ORTSNET) software, providing status, maintenance direction, fault reporting, indication and display, and readiness assessment of the Aegis Weapon System.
The SDDC can be configured with 4GB to 16GB of memory and features a large 19-inch display for optimal viewing. The SDDC has a backlit 102-key keyboard and a three-button HULA pointing device. The keyboard and pointing device are environmentally sealed and can be operated by workers with heavy gloves when required in tough environmental conditions. The SDDC contains one Blu-ray read/write drive and two removable solid-state hard drives. Audio communications are supported with microphone and headphone jacks, and an integrated speaker provides an audible alarm. Dual copper Gigabit Ethernet and dual fiber Ethernet ports provide LAN connectivity through locking sealed connectors.
For added flexibility, the SDDC can be configured with an upgraded processor, expansion cards, mass storage devices, a rear-mounted USB 2.0 port and connectors as required. Other I/O options are available such as MIL-STD-1397C NTDS, ATDS TADIL A, MIL-STD-1553, IRIG-B, and others. The rear panel has multiple connector plates that can be customized for specific connectors.
The SDDC can run standard, IXI Technology, or customer proprietary software, depending on the application. IXI Technology has a full staff of software engineers that can develop or assist in the development of custom software.
In addition to meeting MIL-STD 810 and 901D, the SDDC is designed to meet UL, CE and CSA listed safety standards and can operate from 0℃ to 50℃.
