MilDef Supports First AbMN-Modified MC-130J

Small form factor USB Matrix from MilDef Inc. provides rugged, flexible input and output for advanced Airborne Mission Networking (AbMN) secure communications suite.

Sept. 28, 2020 – BREA, Calif. MilDef Inc, provider of rugged, customized electronics solutions for the defense market, has custom designed a USB Matrix for Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) for use in the first MC-130J to be equipped with the Airborne Mission Networking (AbMN) secure communications suite.

AbMN provides US Air Force operators a single set of critical mission data, eliminating the need to monitor multiple systems. With four inputs and four outputs, MilDef’s SSW2101 USB Matrix enables the AbMN suite with seamless, instantaneous switching.

The USB Matrix is part of MilDef’s 19”/2 product line of rugged mountable computer, network and power devices. Designed for interoperability and open architecture implementations, modular 19”/2 products easily integrate into existing system infrastructures and communicate seamlessly across existing transmission mediums.

Rugged 19”2 electronic solutions are ideal for aircraft like the MC-130J for several reasons:
● Withstand harsh conditions such as high-elevation temperatures and extreme vibration
● Can be mounted in a space envelope that is half of a standard 19” rack
● Meet unique power requirements of aircraft
● Shielded down to MIL Standard 461
● Can be customized to any specification

“MilDef’s goal is to enable warfighters with rugged, SWaP-optimized, modular electronics for maximum mission flexibility,” said CEO Björn Karlsson. “We’re happy to be able to contribute greater interoperability to this groundbreaking project.”
