Mercury Systems and TTTech to Provide Leading UAV Manufacturer with Safety-Certifiable Next-Generation Flight Computers and Network
Mercury’s BuiltSAFE™ configurable, flight-safety certifiable ecosystem includes mezzanine sites for design maneuverability and multiple OpenVPX compute zones enabling processing solutions with different levels of safety certification to converge into a single subsystem. TTTech’s highly integrated flight-safety-certifiable deterministic Ethernet TTE-End System is packaged as an open systems compliant PMC mezzanine for ease of integration. Both Mercury’s and TTTech’s certifiable building blocks have Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) compliance.
Mercury processing solutions with BuiltSAFE™ capabilities bring the highest level of flight-safety assurance to aerospace and defense applications. The proven, reusable DAL-certified artifacts for mission computing, avionics, networking and datalink communications processing save time and cost while decreasing risk.
“Mercury’s and TTTech’s combined flight-safety-certifiable processing solutions enabled us to create exceptional value for our customer by solving more of their engineering and flight certification challenges,” said Ike Song, Mercury’s Vice President and General Manager for Mercury Mission Systems. “By leveraging open system architectures, our customer was able to access a more sophisticated and comprehensive mission-critical processing solution with lower program and technical risk.”
TTTech’s TTE-End System A664 Pro board delivers deterministic Ethernet and uniquely integrates IEEE 802.3 Ethernet, rate-constrained ARINC 664 p7 and time-triggered SAE AS6802 into one physical infrastructure. The TTE-End System is certifiable to civil aerospace standards including RTCA DO-254/DO-178C DAL A and DO-160G.
“Mercury’s and TTTech’s open systems, top-down approach to building in flight-safety compatibility enabled our customer’s schedule and development budget to shrink,” said Christian Fidi, TTTech’s Director Product Management, Sales and Marketing. “All the processing and networking capabilities required for this comprehensive, mission-critical processing solution was quickly architected using pre-engineered, open systems building blocks and is wholly ready for flight-safety certification.”
