ECRIN SYSTEMS, YOUR PARTNER FOR RUGGED COMPUTERS AND COMPLEX PROJECTS
The aero-defence & security industry is famous for very long product lifecycles and strong technological challenges that largely rely on innovation and the use of COTS modules.
In France, this sector shows a dynamic development with several aeronautic manufacturers and numerous Tier 1 equipment manufacturers.
The government requirements, via the DGA and the Ministry of Defence, but also the major European defence electronics players with dynamic exportation activities (Thales, Safran, Airbus, Naval Group, Nexter, Dassault, etc.) contribute to this positive situation.
Since a few years, the Defence sector has started a deep change looking for COTS/MOTS products based on solutions adapted to specific constraints:
- Extreme environment with extended temperature range, shocks and vibrations constraints, humidity, salt spray, EMC…
- More and more compulsory qualifications: MIL-STD-810F, DO-160, STANAG, BUREAU VERITAS, …
- Long-term support throughout the program (technology watch, EOL, LTB, component stocking, MCO…)
- "Built In Test" softwares, …
Implementation of a gateway function for interfacing a long-range camera embedded in an armoured wheeled or tracked vehicle. Severe MIL-STD-461 and MIL-STD-810 constraints in an ultra-compact footprint.
Noise reduction and improved heat dissipation. The integration of an air-water exchanger into a waterproof marine cabinet requires reducing the size of computers and improving the airflow inside the cabinet. Bringing modularity to a very compact computer to fulfil different needs.
Design of a conduction-cooled computer, whose mission is to ensure the management of Video and Audio flows, to be embedded in an armoured vehicle of the French Army.
The French Naval Aeronautics was looking for a system to monitor and record the information flow on the various ARINC buses of the KC135.
Provide video processing boxes that are added to an existing sights configuration to improve performance.
