Z Microsystems, a provider of mission-ready computing systems, has been awarded a contract worth $6 million to provide a customized intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance processing system to a global aircraft integrator.
Under the agreement, Z Microsystems’ ISR solution’s hardware and software will provide intelligence support for the end user, the company says.
The hardware, which is designed by Z Microsystems, uses the COMx MPU—an ultra-compact and lightweight addition to the multi platform computer processing units—to host mission specific software, imaging development systems displays for operator analysis, the company’s ZX3 Servers for video ingestion and a new fiber optic transmission system to extend video, USB and audio to remote operators.
The software is based on Z Microsystems ZViDEO capture software and integrates with partner technology to control an optical sensor with EO and IR video feeds, and provides the capability to analyze, tag and distribute video in real-time, the company says.
“Z Microsystems was selected for this program based on our long-standing reputation for product quality and our ability to meet the customer needs with an integrated package,” said Bob Kopas, Z Microsystems vice president of military programs. “This solution is applicable to any airborne, ground-based or maritime application which processes ISR data.”
