POINT MUGU, Calif., 31 Oct. 2014. U.S. Navy avionics experts needed rugged general-purpose processors for a rapidly deployable electronic warfare (EW) system for U.S. Marine Corps fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. They found their solution from General Micro Systems Inc. (GMS) in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.
Officials of the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division at Point Mugu, Calif., have awarded a $3.6 million contract to GMS to provide the company's S902R Golden-Eye III and S905R Raider III rugged processor and data-storage systems.
The GMS Golden-Eye and Raider embedded computing equipment are for the AN/ALQ-231(V) Intrepid Tiger II reprogrammable communications jammer for Marine Corps fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. GMS will provide 105 Golden-Eye and 145 Raider systems for the Intrepid Tiger II program.
