Network Server System

Astronautics has developed a Network Server System (NSS) that provides a modular, open architecture, core processing system platform for real time communication with aircraft mission and avionics systems that supports the hosting of Astronautics, operator, and 3rd party-developed applications. The NSS consists of dual Integrated Network Server Units (INSU), Airborne and Portable Maintenance Access Terminals, Personal Identification Device Readers, and a Printer. Each of the two INSUs hosts dual processors including a PowerPC using a Green Hills Integrity DO-178 Real Time Operating System (RTOS) in an open computer architecture with many interfaces to ensure strong connectivity to a variety of aircraft systems.
