Ultra Electronics announces that its Communication and Integrated Systems (CIS)

business, based in Greenford, UK, has been awarded a £14m contract extension to its
End Cryptographic Unit Replacement Programme (ECURP).

Under ECURP Ultra is providing the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) with a high grade
cryptographic capability which supports modern modes and key delivery whilst being
interoperable with legacy devices to maintain operational availability. The devices are
software definable making them compatible with future emerging requirements.

This contract extension for the integration & installation phase of the programme will
see Ultra manage the roll-out and deployment of this critical national capability. This
will encompass delivering and integrating cryptographic units into platforms, systems
and sites across the UK MoD's inventory and estate.

Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive of Ultra, commented:
"The award of the system integration contract to Ultra ensures that the UK MoD will
realise the early benefits of a modern high grade cryptographic estate. It recognises
Ultra's extensive capability in system integration and management of complex
equipment roll-out programmes. This is a further example of Ultra delivering its
strategies for growth by winning and expanding its position on a long-term
programme."

IntervalZero’s RTX64

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
