Lockheed Martin contracts with Parvus to ruggedize Cisco wireless access points for Zumwalt-Class destroyer

Parvus to Develop MIL-STD Qualified Version of Cisco Access Point for U.S. Navy

Amaro (UD), December 17, 2008 – Lockheed Martin has awarded Parvus, US-based subsidiary of Eurotech Group focused on the defence sector, a $700,000 contract to develop, test and supply a pre-production ruggedized version of the Cisco Aironet wireless access point for Zumwalt, the U.S. Navy’s lead ship of next-generation destroyers.
Under the contract, Parvus will repackage Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) Cisco Aironet technology to meet unique harsh environmental and electromagnetic interference conditions onboard the destroyer to provide secure Wi-Fi network connectivity for the crew. Parvus will qualify the equipment to MIL-STD-810F, MIL-STD-461E and other military standards, as specified by the Navy, to ensure reliability under various adverse conditions.
Parvus was selected by Lockheed Martin for its considerable experience in developing rugged computing solutions for the U.S. military, including ruggedized versions of Cisco networking products.
