ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- General Atomics picked PT's IPnexus Application-Ready Systems for sensor processing for the aircraft recovery system on the U.S. Navy's CVN 78 aircraft carrier.
The Advanced Arresting Gear program for the carrier integrates PT's advanced, long life-cycle computing and communications solution with existing components for deceleration during recovery operations in Navy aircraft carriers.
PT said the IPnexus system provides a high-performance sensor processing platform that enables precise data monitoring and reporting of information as well as self-diagnostics with maintenance alerts.
PT, the recently re-branded Performance Technologies, has headquarters in New York.
"We evaluated a number of options for this critical piece of network infrastructure and found that PT's IPnexus Application-Ready Systems provide the solid foundation we needed to build a reliable sensor solution," said Gregory Chapelle, AAG principal instrument engineer at General Atomics.
"The AAG program represents an important design win for us and is another example of how our COTS-based solutions continue to meet the high availability and long-lasting performance requirements for today's aerospace and defense communications infrastructure," said Ed Bizari, vice president of sales for Military, Aerospace, and Government Systems at PT.
