1/24/2006 - VMETRO has received a contract to supply digital signal processing boards to BAE Systems in Nashua, NH for the Airborne Reconnaissance Low (ARL) Communications Intelligence (COMINT) Upgrade program, a two-year effort to provide an upgraded COMINT capability to the US Army ARL fleet. VMETRO's Phoenix VPF1 Dual PowerPC, Dual Virtex-II Pro FPGA VME/VXS Digital Signal Processors and PMC-FPGA02 Xilinx Virtex-II FPGA PMC Modules will be contained within the system provided to the Army for installation aboard the ARL platform. The VPF1 and PMC-FPGA02 boards will run the signal processing algorithm as well as perform real-time processing of the sensor data. This initial contract is valued at approximately $850K. Along with this award, this design is being included in similar future programs as part of BAE Systems' common platform initiative.
