[Avionics Magazine 09-29-2016] Harris Corporation and Boeing are developing next-generation avionics technology for current and future military aircraft to improve and protect aviators’ missions. The two companies 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 integrates with Boeing Secure Computing Solution hardware, Boeing Phantom Fusion mission software, and a state-of-the-art multi-level communication network to improve modern mission computing. Harris will deliver high-performance, scalable mission processing hardware based on an open-systems architecture.
“Our core processor hardware adapts to the mission needs of any military aircraft in a cost-effective way,” said Ed Zoiss, president, Harris Electronic Systems. “We will use our expertise in ruggedized, high-performance COTS hardware to provide the processing power and cross-platform applicability needed for mission success.”
