Versatile Vehicle Management System
MULTI-PLATFORM SOLUTION: AIR, LAND AND SEA
Vehicle control is becoming more critical as the level of autonomy of the platforms increases. New solutions are required to meet the demanding safety requrements while reducing volume, weight.
Key to success is an unprecedent level of integration, achieved by powerful computing architectures and partitioning techniques to perform a broad set of functions on a single hardware platform.
Connectivity, high computing power and scalability are the essential features that are required to fulfill the requirements of future Vehicle Control Systems.
Controlling a vehicle means first of all be capable to determine its position and instruct it to move to follow a defined route. Although GNSS based navigation is widely used, it does not provide the suitable level of integrity and availability required by safety critical applications, as the satellites signals can be jammed, spoofed or subject to degradation due to propagation issues. The solution is High Integrity Inertial Navigation.
Inertial Navigation Systems calculate direction moved over time, with a varying degree of drift, and with the use of high precision oscillators provide continuity of time. The great advantage of the Inertial Navigation System is that it cannot be spoofed or jammed.
Civitanavi is leader in the design and development of ITAR free, high accuracy, true solid state inertial sensors for navigation and vehicle stabilization. Civitanavi sensors are widely used by a broad range of applications, from industrial to avionic. ONEBOX solution, by providing additional computing power and connectivity provides the fundamental building block around which a Vehicle Control System can be built.
ONEBOX advanced architecture is capable to host a large number of applications, providing the basic services required by a safety critical application and the resources for high integrity inertial sensing and navigation. Space and weight are saved by drastically reducing the number of equipment required while providing an enhanced level of flexibility thanks to the virtualization of these equipment through software functions.
A NEW APPROACH TO SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT
ONEBOX is an integrated, high computing power platform which provides all the basic services required by safety critical applications – redundant resources, redundancy management, data consolidation – along with native high integrity (multiple redundant) high performance Inertial Navigation functions.
ONEBOX triple redundant multi-core processors and EMI power supplies modules pave the way for a new generation of avionic. By allowing a wide range of possible configurations, ONEBOX gives the opportunity to fulfill the requirements of an incredible amount of system configurations.
