General Atomics Selects PT's IPnexus® Application-Ready Systems For Navy's Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) Program

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- PT (Nasdaq: PTIX), the recently rebranded Performance Technologies, a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today announced that its IPnexus® Application-Ready Systems have been selected by General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (EMS) Division to provide vital sensor processing for the next-generation aircraft recovery system aboard the U.S. Navy's CVN 78 aircraft carrier.

The Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) program integrates PT's advanced, long life-cycle computing and communications solution with existing components for deceleration during recovery operations in Navy aircraft carriers. The IPnexus system provides a high-performance sensor processing platform that enables precise data monitoring and reporting of information as well as self-diagnostics with maintenance alerts.    

"We evaluated a number of options for this critical piece of network infrastructure and found that PT's IPnexus Application-Ready Systems provide the solid foundation we needed to build a reliable sensor solution," said Dr. Gregory Chapelle, AAG principal instrument engineer at General Atomics.

PT develops mission-critical systems, sub-systems, and software for defense firms and government agencies around the world. The company's commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS)-based network communication and computing systems are engineered into a wide variety of programs comprising shipboard communications, air traffic control, radar and sensor systems, ground-based communications and government telecommunications applications.

"The AAG program represents an important design win for us and is another example of how our COTS-based solutions continue to meet the high availability and long lasting performance requirements for today's aerospace and defense communications infrastructure," said Ed Bizari, vice president of sales for Military, Aerospace, and Government Systems at PT.
