JARVIS Modular Mission Computing, BuiltSAFE™

It can cost over $2B to maintain technology on a modern aircraft

JARVIS was designed to solve that problem

With a unique software-defined hardware architecture, JARVIS is a revolutionary approach to mission computing.

Based on identical, reconfigurable and self-testing “JARVI” modules JARVIS reduces sustainment costs, speeds integration, reduces risk and accelerates the deployment of airborne applications. Aligned to the FACE technical standard, JARVIS seamlessly integrates into existing aircraft computing ecosystems.

Meet JARVI. The Heart of JARVIS.

Each JARVI compute module is a low-power individual high-performance compute node that can be deployed standalone or combined with other JARVI modules to form a powerful mission computer. JARVI modules are dynamically reconfigurable. Even the backplane interconnect is software selectable between Ethernet and ARINC/AFDX. JARVI modules are smart enough to self-diagnose errors and failover in real-time. They allow for remote control and monitoring and each JARVI module is field replaceable at Organization-level (O-level), making JARVIS computers simple and cost-effective to maintain.

Lower Cost

The modular design of JARVIS significantly reduces overall mission computer lifecycle costs. The unique software-defined architecture and the common, reconfigurable, O-level replaceable modules reduce development costs for system integrators and sustainment costs for operators.

In fact, one operator has estimated that JARVIS saved them over $300 million in lifecycle and maintenance costs alone. This is a significant savings considering the US department of defense spends over $2 billion dollars for each of its technology sustainment programs.


Store More and Share Faster

One JARVI module to stock. One part number to maintain. Average system repair time: 12 minutes.

JARVIS provides Weapon Replaceable Assembly (WRA) fault detection and isolation at the system or LRU and Shop Replaceable Unit (SRU) fault detection and isolation at the board. Built in test (BIT) detects 95% of failures and identifies failures to a single module with a simple visible indicator light. JARVIS eliminates the need for expensive automatic test equipment (ATE) and specialized technicians.

Reduce Risk

With a smart, automated failover mechanism JARVIS identifies, prioritizes, and distributes application resources to healthy modules if a module stalls or fails.

This shortens ground time and ensures critical flight applications remain online even if other systems go offline. One spare JARVI module delivers quadruple (4n) redundancy. JARVIS is delivered with complete DO-254 and DO-178 artifacts certifiable up to DAL-A to streamline the certification process and mitigate operational risk.  FIPS 140-2 and NSA Type-1 advanced encryption options protect mission systems and data.

One System. Infinite Possibilities.

The JARVIS architecture is flexible enough to provide high-performance computing for manned and unmanned rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, ground vehicles and other platforms. JARVI modules can be programmed to take on a range of personalities and assembled together into a JARVIS system that delivers  mission management, platform management, flight maintenance, navigation, sensor fusion the list goes on.  Additionally, the reconfigurability and upgradeability of the JARVIS architecture future-proofs the platforms that deploy it.
