Harris to Advance Next-Generation Avionics Technology with Boeing
- Supports Boeing Phantom Works' efforts to develop common mission computing architecture
- Employs open-systems approach to create scalable, integrated core processor hardware
- Promotes cost-effectiveness through high-performance, ruggedized commercial components
Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS) and Boeing (NYSE: BA) are developing next-generation avionics technology for current and future military aircraft to improve and protect aviators’ missions.
Harris and Boeing are collaborating to create advanced core mission processing architectures. The mission processor manages many of an aircraft’s critical capabilities, including communication, sensors, navigation and displays. Harris will produce the collaborative design for this common processing hardware that, when integrated with Boeing Secure Computing Solution hardware, Boeing Phantom Fusion mission software and a state-of-the-art multi-level communication network, will help set the standard in modern mission computing.
