On Board Data Networks

RUAG Space together with our partner TTTech offers high-performance onboard data network electronics based on Time-Triggered Ethernet for space missions. ...

This product family comprises the Avionics Hosting Unit (AHU), Switches and End-Systems. The AHU provides slots for 3rd party single board computers as well as room for future expansion with interface boards. The TTEthernet technology allows fast and highly reliable on-board data transfer on space missions, like the future space station “Gateway” by NASA and its partners.

Your benefits:

• Off-the-shelf subsystem solution
• Small form factor (3U) and low weight
• High reliability
• Time-Triggered Ethernet allows to use the same cable for critical and non-critical data
• Compatibility with terrestrial best-effort Ethernet
• TTEthernet technology as an open standard was ratified by NASA, ESA, CSA and JAXA as the “International Avionics System Interoperability Standards” (or IASIS) for deep space applications
