AUVSI 2014 - Techaya Delivers Industry's Smallest Board-level Ruggedized, Managed Gigabit Ethernet Switch for Embedded Avionic & UAV Communications

Weighs 25% of compatible solutions' payload with ultra-compact footprint

Unmanned Systems 2014


LOS ANGELES--MilSource, a newly formed U.S.-based distributor of military-grade Ethernet connectivity solutions, announced availability of Techaya's MILTECH 919 ultra-compact, fully managed, board-level Ethernet switch. At 10.7 cm x 4.8 cm x .05 cm, and weighing .052 kg, it weighs 25% of existing board-level Ethernet switches used in military and avionic applications.

The MILTECH 919 features 8 triple-speed (10/100/1000Mbps) ports plus an additional 100/1000 fiber optic port. With a built-in board-to-board connector, it is an ideal solution for adding advanced switching capabilities to any OEM embedded platform with space and weight limitations. Advanced network features include virtual LANS (VLANS), traffic prioritization (QoS), bandwidth aggregation and L3 static routing. The MILTECH 919 can be remotely managed to optimize communications and prioritize critical information traffic.

"When Techaya solutions were introduced to the U.S. last year, they already had a reputation for delivering innovative Ethernet switching solutions in ultra-compact MIL-STD housing," said Ronen Isaac, General Manager, MilSource. "Techaya listened to our avionic customers and now delivers new board-level versions that radically lighten payload of weight-sensitive platforms such as UAVs, small UGVs and other aircraft."

With passive cooling eliminating the need for additional heat-syncing devices, a conformal coating, and ruggedized design, the MILTECH 919 meets MILSTD-461E, MILSTD-810F/G/GM and IP68 compliance when installed in an appropriate enclosure.

Techaya will be exhibiting at AUVSI in Orlando, booth #2454.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
