Tech Brief: MOTS+ Environmental Protections for Operation at the Tactical Edge

March 15, 2022

To intensify extreme temperature resilience and mechanical durability without increasing pre-integration risk, cost and schedule, Mercury takes a modular open systems architecture (MOSA) approach to design subsystems that operate at the tactical edge. Our agnostic cooling approach applies the air, conduction, Liquid Flow-Through, Air Flow-Through, Air Flow-By™ and Liquid Flow-By™ architectures to a single OpenVPX board design. Applying MOTS+ rugged packaging and effective cooling technologies across a portfolio of OpenVPX™ building blocks, we  create scalable, interoperable processing subsystems that easily move from the lab to the tactical edge.
