Mission Computer

The Rugged Micro Mission Computer (MC-10) is a hardened stand-alone system that delivers powerful performance in a lightweight and miniature footprint. At less than 81in³ (6.7” x 4” x 3” including connectors) and 2lbs, this micro package is today’s solution for the mobile environment. Low power consumption, configuration flexibility, and cost efficiency make it an ideal solution for demanding applications in the military, industrial and commercial markets. Utilizing reliable Intel CPUs, the MC-10 has a robust I/O including digital video, (2) gigabit ethernet, (4) USB 2.0, (2) RS-232/RS-485, HD Audio, and GPIO. Designed with modularity in mind, the MC-10 can be customized with application specific expansion capabilities such as 1553, ARINC 429, CANBus, GPS, additional comm or GPIO ports, and video frame grabbers. The MIL-SPEC design ensures operability in environmental conditions as defined per MIL-Standards 461, 704, 810, 1275, 3009, and DO-160.
