Z Microsystems Provides Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Processing System to Global Aircraft Integrator
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
Microsystems, a leading provider of mission-ready computing systems,
today announced that it is providing a customized Intelligence,
Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) processing system to a global
aircraft integrator. The system will be installed into aircraft to
provide intelligence support for the end user. The total size of the
multi-year order exceeded $6 million.
Under the agreement, Z Microsystems' ISR solution will provide an
integrated system of hardware and software. The hardware, which is
designed by Z Microsystems, uses the COMx
MPU to host mission specific software, IDS displays for operator
analysis, ZX3 Servers for video ingestion, and a new fiber optic
transmission system to extend video, USB and audio to remote operators.
The software is based on Z Microsystems ZViDEO
capture software and integrates with partner technology to control
an optical sensor with EO and IR video feeds. The software provides the
capability to analyze, tag (News - Alert) and distribute video in real-time.
"Z Microsystems was selected for this program based on our long-standing
reputation for product quality and our ability to meet the customer
needs with an integrated package," said Bob Kopas, VP of Military
Programs at Z Microsystems. "This solution is applicable to any
airborne, ground-based or maritime application which processes ISR data."
The COMx MPU is a line of ultra-compact and lightweight computer
processing units with flexible configuration options in durable sealed
aluminum chassis. Based on a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) open
architecture platform, the COMx MPU design offers seamless processor
upgrades and long operational life in harsh environments. The conduction
cooled sealed chassis can house up to seven fully independent hot
swappable processing modules.
The Z Microsystems IDS
displays for this application are designed and certified for an
airborne environment, although they are also deployable on the ground or
shipboard. With built-in real-time video enhancement (RTEV) capability,
the displays permit the operators, at a push of a button on the display,
to significantly improve the streaming video when the picture is
degraded by environmental effects such as fog, sand, haze and
