The unit has been qualification tested for extreme MIL-STD-461F EMI/EMC and MIL-STD-810G thermal, shock, vibe, humidity, altitude, and ingress conditions, as well as RTCA/DO-160G airworthiness tests for low temperature and high altitude operation. Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are brought out over rugged MIL-DTL-38999 connectors on the front panel and optionally Tactical Fiber Optic Cable Assembly (TFOCA II) connectors on the rear. Managed and unmanaged switch configuration are available for configurable or plug and play Gigabit Ethernet LAN applications.
Designed for rugged extremes, this Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP)-optimized Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) solution is well suited for C4ISR technology refresh and situational awareness upgrade programs. To enhance reliability, the unit features no moving parts, a near cable-less internal design, all industrial temperature grade components, EMI filtering, and a sealed dust/ waterproof aluminum chassis with isolated MIL-STD-1275/704 power supply that protects against vehicle/aircraft voltage surges, spikes and transients.
The DuraNET 1268 features an onboard microprocessor for local/remote control and port monitoring, as well as support for Quality of Service (QoS) traffic prioritization, Virtual Local-Area Network (VLAN) trunking, Telnet remote CLI management, and Rapid Spanning Tree (RSTP) redundancy. To enhance security and system management, the unit integrates recoverable data zeroization capabilities for declassifying switch data, along with RS-232 Command Line Interface (CLI) and Ethernet management ports. Status LEDs indicate zeroization signal, power, and port link/speed/activity.
