Parvus Corp's display systems chosen for P-8A Poseidon

Parvus to supply display systems for P-8A Poseidon

Parvus Corporation today announced its contract with Boeing to supply the Flight Test Display (FTD) and the Instrumentation Crew station Control Panel (ICCP) for the P-8A Poseidon aircraft. Developed for the U.S. Navy, the P-8A is a long-range anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft capable of broad-area, maritime and littoral operations. The P-8A will begin flight test this Fall and initial operational capability is slated for 2013.

Boeing selected the DuraVIS(r) 4300 from Parvus to serve as the aircraft's ICCP. By combining the proven durability and power of Parvus' DuraCOR mission computer with a Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) Multi-Function Display (MFD), the DuraVIS 4300 is an ideal solution for presenting flight, sensor, mapping, advisory and other information for the P-8A aircraft. Qualified to MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-704E and MIL-STD-461E standards, the DuraVIS 4300 offers exceptional low-temperature operation (-20C) and resistance to shock and vibration profiles that will be experienced by the P-8A.

In addition, Parvus' DuraVIS(r) 3006 was chosen by Boeing to serve as the Flight Test Display for the P-8A. The DuraVIS 3006 is a rugged flat panel 6.5" TFT Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) offering daylight readability and a hardened mechanical design well suited for the high reliability applications of the P-8A aircraft. This extremely compact (1.5" thick) and lightweight (3lbs) unit is packaged in a hardened aluminum housing equipped with flexible mounting options and an anti-glare protective acrylic cover for impact protection and explosive decompression.

"The selection of Parvus DuraVIS products for the P-8A aircraft is a testament to Parvus' proven track record of supplying durable, highly-reliable mission computers and displays for demanding military and aerospace applications," said Les Goodman, president of Parvus. "We are honored to partner with Boeing to supply such a prestigious aircraft with the necessary equipment to provide maximum interoperability in the future battle space."
