OnTime Networks has had their Ethernet Managed Switches selected by Rheinmetall Defence Australia (RDA) for the LAND 400 Phase 2 Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle program.
The OnTime Networks Advanced Mission Management System uses a Modular Open System Architecture (MOSA) and will be configured as Video Processing Units for this application.
Between 2023 and 2026, OnTime Networks will deliver the VPU and Ethernet Switches for the 8×8 Boxer Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRV) for the Australian Army.
Øyvind Holmeide, OnTime Networks’ CEO, stated; “The selection by Rheinmetall is a significant milestone for OnTime Networks. Our platform is configured as a ruggedized Video Processing Unit designed to operate reliably in the harsh climatically and noisy electrical demanding environments of military applications.
“Furthermore, the Scope of Supply will provide an advanced GVA compliant architecture to Rheinmetall’s Boxer platform allowing enhanced situational awareness and network-centric operations for demanding applications in Command, Control, Communications Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR).
“Achieving highly accurate connectivity onboard can dramatically enhance vehicle communication, networking, and sensor integration for mission capability and critical decision-making.”
