A class of modular open standards approach-compliant packaged commercial off-the-shelf (PCOTS)-distributed computing subsystems from Curtiss-Wright Controls addresses DOD targets for military ground vehicle hardware. The rugged subsystems meet goals for increasing use of PCOTS electronics, which call for shorter equipment fielding times and capabilities with military value that can be improved in low-risk increments. PCOTS systems feature small computers; a high-capacity network infrastructure; a range of packaged solutions from 150 to 778 in³ (3810 to 19,760 mm³) and with 1 to 5 processing modules; and alternate modules to change system functionality. Designed for operation in harsh ground vehicle environments, PCOTS systems operate from -40 to +49°C (-40 to +120°F) and are compliant with vibration, shock, altitude, humidity, salt, fog, fungus, sand, and dust.
