Quantum3D, Inc. and Alta Data Technologies announced the successful validation testing of Quantum3D’s newest Thermite tactical visual computer to the SAE AS15531 MIL-STD-1553, AS4111 Remote Terminals (RT) Validation Test Plan. Thermite 3, which utilizes Alta’s embedded 1553 core technology, AltaCore-1553, is the most powerful field-embedded visual computing system for military and other rugged vehicle systems. This successful test by an independent third party, Test Systems, Inc. of Phoenix, validates Quantum3D’s and Alta’s MIL-STD-1553 interface to the industry’s most accepted, stringent test standards.
“Alta is proud to work with Quantum3D to get the Thermite 3 embedded visual computer 1553 certified. Quantum3D’s leadership in the embedded computing space is well understood: Whether for powerful, vehicle-embedded solutions enabled by the Thermite 3 or man-wearable systems for the battlefield, Quantum3D’s Thermite line provides exceptional performance. We are pleased to have our AltaCore-1553 protocol engine as an integral part of Quantum3D’s newest Thermite computer,” said Harry Wild, VP of Sales for Alta Data Technologies.
“Quantum3D reviewed the 1553 marketplace and determined Alta’s product to be the best fit for our customers who demand a proven, full featured MIL-STD-1553 network interface and support toolset. The AltaCore-1553 and AltaAPI, application program interface tool kit, was easily integrated into our FPGA chip and system design to provide our customer an advanced, yet easy to use 1553 development environment. Alta’s RT Protocol Validation Software, AltaRTVal, saved man weeks in test preparation and was instrumental in a successful, first visit test for the Quantum3D Thermite product,” states Alan Simmonds, VP of Engineering at Quantum3D.
Quantum3D is currently selling Thermite 3 systems to both military and civilian customers. Alta currently sells and supports the AltaCore and its full line of 1553 and ARINC interface cards, analyzer software and RT Protocol Validation software.
