Performance Improvements For RACE++ Series Systems


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623

: 28 June, 2010  (New Product)
Mercury Computer Systems is offering defence users the ability to enhance capabilities for users of RACE++ systems
Mercury Computer Systems has announced a track record of success in upgrading systems performance for currently deployed defence applications using RACE++ Series technology. Mercury systems are deployed on more than 300 defence programs – more than 200 of these are based on RACE++ switch-fabric technology.

Mercury consults with each customer to determine the best solution for a specific set of needs. For those who need a rapid, low-risk tech refresh, the RACE++ Series PowerPC 7448 Multicomputer module is a high-performance drop-in product upgrade that adds significant improvements in processor speed, L2 cache size, and memory available per processor. This module uses the same fabric as existing, long-deployed RACE++ systems, delivering compatibility across generations and straightforward software migration.

“Mercury offers customers a choice for their performance migration requirements – either to continue to leverage their investment in RACE++ or to migrate to OpenVPX solutions,” said Steve Patterson, Vice President of Defence Product Line Management at Mercury. “Many of our customers are looking for upgrades to currently deployed systems, tech refreshes that can be put in place quickly and with minimal risk to the overall program. For these customers, we have an upgrade path to PowerPC 7448 processors that delivers a 30-50 percent increase in performance through simple board swaps.”

Mr Patterson continued: “Other customers need a larger performance gain in embedded computing to support advanced sensing and imaging technology. Mercury provides implementations based on VXS and OpenVPX, offering application portability and five-fold increases in bandwidth and processing performance facilitated through Mercury’s open software suite.”

Systems integration services from Mercury are available to support these upgrades, further mitigating the program risk. radar systems on both manned and unmanned platforms, as well as signals intelligence applications, have recently taken advantage of the RACE++ tech refresh capability.
