SUNNYVALE, CA – (BUSINESS WIRE) – November 29, 2021–
Spectranetix, Inc., a Pacific defense company, is proud to announce the SX-124, a robust 3U OpenVPX ™ high-performance position, navigation and time (PNT) solution. With its ability to provide time and positioning information in a GPS-failed environment by merging sensors, the SX-124 switch is a mandatory module in the next generation of Cyber / EW / SIGINT / Comms / BMS and other highly integrated systems with a requirement for modular open package of C5ISR standards of the US Army (CMOSS) and alignment with the technical standard of Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture ™ (SOSA).

The SX-124 can receive external resources or use its Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) on-board receivers as reference inputs for time and location data. Position data can be combined with internal and external inertial measurement units (IMUs). It distributes eleven 100 MHz outputs and eleven 1PPS outputs in a phase coherent manner. The SX-124 provides synchronization and positioning from an internal atomic clock with a chip scale (CSAC) and IMU. There is also a built-in clock for the day to provide accurate time stamps to the network when starting the system without GPS. The SX-124 also provides enhanced location information and can be connected to an external IMU, as well as a controlled reception antenna (CPRA). The SX-124 supports VICTORY’s standard shared PNT services from a built-in GNSS synchronization receiver with an additional built-in M-Code GB-GRAM receiver, CSAC and altimeter providing altitude information. With the possibility of future expansion to support re-air switching (OTAR), external optical gyroscope (FOG), alternative navigation (ALTNAV) and additional GNSS systems such as Galileo, the SX-124 becomes a unique offer in the market to support the need for defense. a community of high-performance guaranteed PNT (A-PNT) solution in 3U VPX form factor and compliant with the latest open set of standards. “ Reliable situational information and joint, network maneuvers require guaranteed PNT capability. Our A-PNT solution encompasses the open pntOS sensor fusion framework and supports multiple sensor connections, including GNSS receiver, GB-GRAM, IMU, FOG, CRPA and 2-channel software-defined RF receiver for added flexibility. Combined with sophisticated time and frequency characteristics and CMOSS alignment, this PNT card is another example of our commitment to CMOSS and SOSA. “Said Daniel Kilfoyle, technical director of Pacific Defense.
Spectranetix is the market leader in the development of high-performance CMOSS / SOSA products, including mission-ready systems through the parent company, with a stable product range, including SX-430 Software Defined Radio (SDR), SX-330 Single Board Computer (SBC) and the SX-310 digital signal processor (DSP) currently in use. The SX-124 Precision Navigation and Timing (PNT) card discussed in this press release and the recently announced SX-153 Dual Enclave 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet Switch card are on the road for production early next year.
