The CR-6900 MIL Series
Gigabit Ethernet Switch, Router, and GPS Time Server platform has been designed from the ground up to perform in the harshest environments providing reliable connectivity for land, air, and sea mission-critical defense applications. With up to 48 GbE ports and 4 10GbE ports, the CR-6900 provides the right mix of performance and scalability to meet the demanding requirements of today’s aerospace and military industries.
Our rugged, high-performance system was selected by sensor solutions specialist HENSOLDT Sensors GmbH to provide its military-grade, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) with a solution for a mobile and all-terrain ground-based Target Acquisition Radar System (TRML). The HENSOLDT Mobile Air Surveillance and Defense Radar System is part of a larger deployable air defense system provided by several major defense systems companies, with the primary mission for rapid response, high precision, and highly mobile detection and tracking of targets. The radar system is based on the latest AESA radar technology (AESA = Active Electronically Scanned Array) for short and medium-range detection and air defense.
Today’s military and aerospace networking solutions need to be innovative and highly reliable. The CR-6900 19” 1U MIL Series is a COTS fully-managed Layer 2/3 Ethernet switch with an embedded Router and GPS time server capability (IEEE 1588 PTP, NTP, IRIG, 1PPS, 10MHz), in a rugged housing. It is specifically designed to provide reliable, high-performance connectivity for extremely demanding size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints in harsh environmental conditions as well as highly accurate time and frequency, derived from GNSS satellites for legacy and IP-connected devices in parallel. The system offers unmatched flexibility and scalability so that the user can have the desired configuration in one unit at the heart of the new Air Defense solution, which will be deployed on fixed and mobile ground platforms.
