Parvus Rugged Subsystems to Be Deployed in Boeing 737 Business Jets

ARINC Engineering Services, LLC Uses DuraCOR 820 Mission Computers and DuraMAR 3230 Mobile Routers for Boeing 737 Communication Upgrades

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - Eurotech subsidiary Parvus announced that its DuraCOR 820 mission computer and DuraMAR 3230 network router subsystems are to be deployed as part of a satellite and communications upgrade for the Boeing 737 Business Jet. Initial units were purchased by Boeing Company subcontractor ARINC Engineering Services, LLC and will be delivered during Q1 2011.

To fulfill the contract, Parvus is providing the units via the Parts Manufacturer Approval Procedure (PMA) Order 8110.42C as specified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The PMA clears the DuraCOR 820 computer and DuraMAR 3230 router for use on any Boeing 737 platform. A favorable audit of Parvus' AS9100 aerospace quality certified manufacturing and MIL-STD system qualification documents support the PMA acceptance for civil aviation use.

ARINC Engineering Services, LLC selected the DuraCOR® 820 rugged mission processor system as it is optimally designed for space/weight-constrained airborne deployments where reliable high performance computing is required. The DuraCOR 820 also delivers compliance to MIL-STD-810G environmental conditions (high altitude, thermal, shock, vibration, humidity), MIL-STD-461E EMI/EMC levels, and 28VDC avionics power supply standards (MIL-STD-704F).

The DuraMAR® 3230 was also an ideal choice for the Boeing 737 as this Cisco IOS-managed mobile network router provides an ultra-rugged chassis optimized for harsh vehicle and aircraft installations. The unit integrates Cisco Systems' 3200 mobile access router technology together with Parvus PC/104+ Gigabit Ethernet switch cards to expand LAN port count and consolidate switch and router functions into a single hardened subsystem designed to MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461E environmental conditions.
