Bright Computing and Curtiss-Wright Working Together

This month, the Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced that its Defense Solutions division is collaborating with the leading High Performance Computing (HPC) software vendor Bright Computing. Bright Computing has brought their supercomputing software tools to the embedded Aerospace & Defense market to be a part of Curtiss-Wright’s OpenHPECTMAccelerator SuiteTM. For the first time the OpenHPEC Accelerator Suite provides proven and robust development tools from the Commercial HPC market to COTS system integrators, designing highly scalable supercomputer-class High performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) system solutions.

System designers using the OpenHPEC Accelerator Suite to build HPEC systems can easily and effectively optimize the development of their HPEC solutions with Curtiss-Wright’s industry-leading 40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Fabric40 COTS modules and backplanes. The OpenHPEC approach eliminates the need for COTS system integrators to develop their own costly middleware to layer on top of APIs provided by hardware vendors.

With our new OpenHPEC initiative we have launched the next big leap in rugged COTS-based HPEC system development,” said Lynn Bamford, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Defense Solutions division. “Working with best-in-class software partners such as Bright Computing, we are leading the COTS market in bringing the same open architecture approach to HPEC software that we’ve already addressed on the hardware front, to eliminate the need for costly middleware development, greatly reduce program risk and speed time to deployment.
