Thursday, October 25, 2007
Vancouver, BC, October 25, 2007--(T-Net)--AdvancedIO® Systems Inc., the leading provider of configurable 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) connectivity and packet processing solutions for real-time embedded systems, today announced an order for over $500,000 from Lockheed Martin Corporation. AdvancedIO’s V1020 udpXG™ technology will be used by Lockheed for testing avionics systems for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Lockheed Martin is the largest provider of IT services, systems integration and training to the U.S. Government and the lead contractor on the multi-national F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program. This purchase follows earlier Lockheed orders of the same AdvancedIO product.
“Lockheed Martin chose AdvancedIO’s technology because of its ability to meet this program’s high performance requirements,” said Abhay Paranjape, JSF International Program Manager for Australia and Canada. “AdvancedIO was also selected because of the flexibility of its standards-based products and their team’s responsiveness while supporting us through the critical design phase.”
Rob Kraft, VP, Marketing for AdvancedIO, stated that “we are pleased that the largest defense contractor in the world has selected AdvancedIO Systems. Our contract with Lockheed Martin further validates that AdvancedIO’s scalable and configurable technology is able to meet the immediate and evolving needs for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and standards-based high-speed connectivity in high-performance embedded systems.”
The V1020 udpXG™ is a 10GbE connectivity and packet processing solution optimized for embedded systems. It provides increased bandwidth at reduced processor utilization using a software interface based on open standards. Industries such as defense, aerospace, telecommunications, and others use AdvancedIO products to practically solve their emerging high-speed data movement challenges with a lower total cost of ownership.
