|Curtiss-Wright Completes VICTORY Validation of Rugged Mobile IP Router Subsystem DuraMAR 5915|
Curtiss-Wright Corporation (NYSE: CW) today announced that its Defense Solutions division, a Cisco® Systems Solution Technology Integration (STI) partner, has successfully completed validation testing to VICTORY (Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability) specifications for its Parvus DuraMAR 5915 mobile IP Router subsystem which is based on the Cisco 5915 Embedded Services Router (ESR) running the Cisco Advanced Enterprise Internetwork Operating System (IOS®).

The compliance testing results confirmed that the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) DuraMAR 5915 effectively supports the U.S. Army’s VICTORY initiative. The rugged SWaP-C (space/weight/power/cost) optimized DuraMAR 5915, an ITAR-Free product, supports VICTORY-compliant networking backbone architectures and is believed to be the first Router Component Type device to be successfully validated to VICTORY.
“As an active member of the VICTORY standards body, Curtiss-Wright is proud to be able to announce the first successful VICTORY validation testing of a network router, our rugged, SWaP-C optimized Parvus DuraMAR 5915,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “The DuraMAR 5915 helps system integrators extend the Cisco Systems Enterprise Networking Infrastructure beyond the reach of traditional fixed-networks into mobile and embedded networking applications at the extreme edge of the network, and its adherence to the VICTORY standard helps reduce SWaP-C while enhancing system interoperability to increase the warfighter’s effectiveness.”
The DuraMAR 5915 subsystem complements Curtiss-Wright’s Parvus DuraNET 30-2020 Cisco IOS-based Ethernet Switch, Parvus DuraNET 20-10 20-port GbE Switch, and Parvus DuraCOR 80-40 Core i7-based mission computer subsystems in IP networking technology refresh and situational awareness upgrade applications deployed at the tactical network edge. When optionally integrated with a DuraCOR mission computer, the DuraNET 5915 forms the basis of a DuraWORX system to deliver further levels of LRU and SWaP-C reduction. Initially validated against VICTORY specification v6.1, the DuraMAR 5915 is also slated to be reviewed to the newer v6.1.1 recently adopted by the VICTORY Standards Organization (VSO).
