Add Assured PNT Hub Capabilities to Ground Vehicle Upgrades

Curtiss-Wright

The U.S. Army's GPS modernization programs require an assured Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) hub capable of delivering PNT to multiple devices on a VICTORY network backbone. Curtiss-Wright's second generation DuraDBH-672 Digital Beachhead™ Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch and vetronics computer directly addresses these requirements by supporting an integrated M-Code Ground-Based GPS Receiver Applications Module (GB-GRAM-M).

  • GPS Receiver Support:
    • MPE-S Type I/II GB-GRAM
    • M-Code GB-GRAM
    • SPS C/A Code PolarisLink
    • External GPS and 1PPS input
  • M-Code Benefits:
    • Higher power signal
    • Improved jamming resistance
    • Improved message formats
    • Signal modulation for higher accuracy and speed

Digital Beachhead
The recently introduced DuraDBH-672 Digital Beachhead is designed for system integrators seeking a rugged Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) optimized COTS solution for implementing VICTORY. Compared to the original Digital Beachhead, the DuraDBH-672 reduces overall size by about 50% while also reducing system weight and cost and adding I/O expansion capabilities for specialized databus requirements (i.e. MIL-STD-1553). The DuraDBH-672 supports both ground vehicle and airborne platform applications with MIL-STD-704/1275 power compatibility and MIL-STD-810G environmental requirements for tactical land vehicles and aircraft platforms.
