Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd., has adopted Curtiss-Wright's (CWCEC) RADHARD Ready COTS technology development initiative to roll out solutions. The initiative applies the principles of embedded COTS product design to military applications that have to perform/survive and function following exposure to otherwise damaging gamma and neutron radiation events.

RADHARD Ready COTS products are claimed as a better alternative to today's costly radiation hardened products, designed to meet the most extreme and highest levels of radiation exposure. Products developed with the help of RADHARD Ready satisfactorily address a large percentage of today's applications that need a lesser range of radiation tolerance. These products use significantly less expensive COTS components.

Many of the radiation-hardened products presently available in the market are designed for space deployment and incorporate features and techniques intended for the most extreme radiation exposure. For a wide range of defence and aerospace applications, this expensive, highest level radiation-hardened design is far beyond what their system requires. RADHARD Ready offers system integrators with a more cost-effective selection of product options that better fit their needs.

The RADHARD Ready radiation mitigation methods, the company claims have been successfully tested and evaluated on several PowerPC-based VME boards at White Sands Missile Test Range (WSMR) in New Mexico. The RADHARD Ready versions are currently available for the 6U SVME/DMV-183 and SVME/DMV-184 SBCs from Curtiss Wright A RADHARD Ready test report is available upon request from the CWCEC factory.

In addition to lowering development costs, RADHARD Ready can also significantly reduce overall time-to-market through the use of pre-qualified COTS products already analysed or tested for radiation tolerance development.
