Application Story: UEI's Modified Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) Sensor Interface Unit (SIU) & US Navy
The US Navy’s LCAC (Landing Craft Air Cushion) fleet is a vital part of Navy operations and is responsible for transporting weapons systems, equipment, cargo and personnel of the Marine Air/Ground Task Force both from ship to shore and across the beach. The LCAC is designed to make it uniquely suited for this mission. However, the fleet is over three decades old and faces obsolescence challenges. To solve these challenges, the Navy introduced the LCAC SLEP (Service Life Extension Program), which would overhaul the LCAC’s existing legacy systems with newer equipment. To do so, the Navy needed rugged, reliable, and flexible data acquisition and control hardware. Learn more.
