When Size, Weight & Power matters, Unitronix supply and support compact and configurable computing systems and switches for rugged environment applications.
These small, quiet, powerful, and rugged small form-factor tactical systems offer tremendous SWaP advantages. As an active participant and leader in the VITA standards committee, our supplier Mercury is a member of all three vehicular integration for C4ISR/EW interoperability (VICTORY) working groups, who develop and validate a more efficient and cost effective set of open standards for C4ISR equipment integration on Army platforms.
These next generation Nano technology (VITA-74) is the first standards-based approach to small form factor conduction-cooled, rugged systems. Aside from SWaP advantages, our Nano product line offers multiple I/O configuration options which meet military standards.
These small form-factor tactical systems focus on specific markets including portable computing, man-wearable systems, unmanned vehicles (UVs), ground vehicles, helicopter and military robotics.
Engineered for Compact Spaces
The Nanopak i7 packs an embedded Intel® 6th generation Core™ i7 processor, up to 32GB DDR4 memory, and 1TB FLASH storage in a small, light-weight, rugged form factor. Engineered to address the performance and compatibility challenges of unmanned vehicle, ground vehicle, man-wearable, and shipboard applications, the Nanopak i7 provides multiple I/O configurations in an environmentally resilient, noiseless chassis.
The NanoPak i7 processor supports AVX 2.0 instruction, enabling fast fused multiply-add operations for better performance on signal processing, media and floating point computations, face recognition, compression, and encryption.
The Nanopak i7 supports a myriad of field applications including real time control, data recording, small storage, virtualisation and communication systems, and mobile robotics. Customisable I/O with multiple networking, storage and interface options including two GigE, Wi-Fi, VGA, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, GPIO, serial, UART, or HD audio allow users maximum configuration flexibility.

Networking in the Field
The only VICTORY integrated switch in a DOD programme of record, the IP67 sealed NanoSWITCH® is a rugged, 10/16 port Gigabit Ethernet switch designed for space-constrained environments such as military vehicles and offshore oil platforms.
It securely enables mobile networks on-board vehicle and aircraft, supporting digital network architectures for situational awareness and network centric operations. An embedded x86 PC can be used for custom network applications or optional VICTORY software configuration.
Vehicle network switching
Distributed architecture vehicle controller
VICTORY compliant switch, router, timing, and control
WAN – LAN interconnectivity and firewall
Shared processing and peripheral communications
The NanoSWITCH’s 10x or 16x external GigE ports operate at rates of 10, 100, and 1000 Mbps. It supports sophisticated IPv4 and IPv6 routing such as tunneling, IP Multicast, VLANs, IETF, IEEE, and DSL Forum standards. A full management suite and Command Line Interface (CLI) is included to simplify switch control and routing operations.
The IGMP snooping feature enables the network to operate at peak efficiency by limiting the IP multicast traffic to the ports that request it, while 802.1Q VLAN support quickly segregates network traffic. VLANs provide an additional layer of security by separating sensitive data from other network workgroups.
