Yorba Linda March 3, 2015 - IXI Technology, an established leader in the design, manufacture and support of tactical data communications solutions for military and government agencies, today announced it has won a multi-year, firm-fixed price, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract for its advanced Data I/O Converter system. IXI's Data I/O Converter converts data from the Naval Tactical Data System (NTDS) to fiber for the AN/SLQ-32(V) shipboard electronic warfare system that provides electronic support and countermeasure protection for U.S. and international navies.
IXI's Data I/O Converter is a critical component of the AN/SLQ-32(V) 6 system and is used to convert information from non-open architecture legacy systems to an open architecture Linux system via an Ethernet local area network (LAN). IXI's Data I/O Converter is the only solution verified and certified by the AEGIS certification authority for interface to the AEGIS Combat Management System. The Data I/O Converter links weapons, radar and other critical systems to Windows or UNIX/Linux-based computers over Ethernet. It allows for the freedom and flexibility of transferring data to systems that are not directly connected to the military I/O channels. Moreover, the Converter provides real-time, highly-reliable communications and control that military systems demand, without the costly cable connections associated with these systems.
"We're very pleased to continue supporting the Navy's electronic warfare systems with our state-of-the-art Data I/O Converter," said Michael Carter, CEO of IXI Technology. "The need to translate the wealth of tactical information acquired by aging technology into useful and timely data is paramount for today's military operations. Our IXI Technology Data I/O Converter enables users to take advantage of these efficiencies by translating data from legacy military systems into industry-standard protocols that work with present-day technology."
