Rochester, New York (July 2, 2013) Vanteon Corporation, an electronic systems design and engineering company, continues to expand its role in avionics development, with the recent award of a contract for data processing of aircraft navigation and antenna stabilization information.
Vanteonâ€™s new client is currently in the process of integrating a surveillance radar system into an aircraft to support maritime and overland surveillance. The system requires ARINC 429 label information from an Inertial Navigation System (INS) for antenna stabilization and from a Flight Management System (FMS) for navigation/stabilization data. Vanteon was selected to perform conversion of the native MIL-STD-1553 data into two ARINC 429 data streams for the radar system. Vanteonâ€™s services included the C/C++ programming of a conversion box utilizing a Linux operating system kernel to control and perform the label conversions.
Vanteonâ€™s years of experience in embedded software development for avionics applications proved to be ideal for this contract. Chris Courtney, Program Manager at Vanteon, states, “Our delivery on this project has been well received by our clientâ€™s engineers and management. We provided a needed set of capabilities and deliverables while the client was able to remain focused on other areas in the system. This style of collaboration works great for all parties involved.â€ť
