ROCK-2 architecture with BuiltSAFE technology powers smart, capable platforms with high-performance, safety-critical processing, saving customers time and money
ANDOVER, Mass., June 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mercury Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRCY, www.mrcy.com) announced today the availability of the full range of flight-safety certification levels in its ROCK-2 mission computing architecture, allowing customers to focus on developing critical aviation applications, while reducing system development time and cost. As requirements for flight-safety certification increase, ROCK-2 customers now have access to the complete range of design assurance levels (DAL), from DAL-E to the highest, DAL-A, and the critical safety assurance they need for a growing number of mission-critical applications, including avionics, vetronics for defense and commercial fixed and rotary-wing platforms, ground stations, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and urban air mobility platforms (UAM).
“Customers can be assured that no matter what their safety-critical needs, the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) ROCK-2 platform will meet their flight-safety requirements,” said Ike Song, Mercury’s Vice President and General Manager for Mercury’s Mission Systems group. “Designed and built using long-life, state-of-the-art COTS components, the ROCK-2 architecture delivers on Mercury’s commitment to enable smart, capable platforms that provide customers the high-performance, safety-critical mission processing solutions they demand.”
The ROCK-2 architecture features BuiltSAFE™ technology, bringing the highest level of flight-safety assurance to aerospace and defense applications. The ROCK-2 platform is an open systems-compliant, 3U OpenVPX™ form factor that is fully compatible with the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA). Together, ROCK-2 and BuiltSAFE™ offer customers an extensive portfolio of interoperable processing hardware, software, networking, datalink, graphics and I/O building blocks with supporting flight-safety certification artifacts, so their solutions can be deployed quickly with less program and schedule risk, and at a lower total cost of ownership than traditional systems.
In addition, with both NXP® and multi-core Intel® processing options, as well as the support of multiple certifiable real-time operating systems, ROCK-2 solutions also deliver next-generation processing performance. From design to full product support, the included reusable DAL artifacts simplify the flight-safety certification process for both hardware (DO-254) and software (DO-178B/C) for greater program velocity with reduced risk.
