Parvus’ DuraCOR 820 Receives Editor’s Choice Award from Military Embedded Systems Magazine

Salt Lake City, UTAH - July 2, 2009 — Parvus Corporation today announced that Military Embedded Systems magazine, providing technical coverage of COTS technology over the whole program lifecycle, has selected the DuraCOR 820® for its coveted Editor’s Choice Award. The DuraCOR 820 is a rugged, ultra-small tactical mission computer measuring less than 3.0” in height and 3.0 lbs in weight.

The DuraCOR 820 serves as an ideal high-performance computing subsystem for space/weight-conscious manned and unmanned systems. Designed for military and aerospace ground mobile and airborne deployments, the DuraCOR 820 features a conductively-cooled 1.4GHz Intel Pentium-M processor and solid state disk pre-loaded with a Linux or Windows XP Embedded operating system. This corrosion/splash-resistant unit is qualified to reliably operate in ambient temperatures of -40ºC to +71ºC, 15G operating shock, 95% humidity, 60,000 ft altitude, and aircraft/helicopter vibration profiles.

Chris Ciufo, OpenSystems Media Group Editorial Director and Editor of Military Embedded Systems magazine, selected the DuraCOR 820 for the award because of the system’s extensive rugged capabilities.

“For years Parvus has been bringing rugged Small Form Factor (SFF) products to the civilian and military markets. The company’s latest effort, the DuraCOR 820, is a svelte 3" high and weighs about 3 lbs,” said Ciufo. “The ‘little cube that could’ is designed for command and control on the move, unmanned vehicle operator control, or C4ISR applications.”
