Twin Oaks Computing invited for SBIR Phase II work

Twin Oaks Computing announced today that they have been selected by the U.S. Navy to pursue Phase II work on the "Backplane IP Connectivity in Linux" Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) project. This phase of the project, which provides Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity to advanced airborne mission computer systems, is a significant contract and provides Twin Oaks with a valuable opportunity to continue working with Naval Air Systems Command. "We are thrilled to be invited to work on this project and we look forward to building a long term relationship with our NAVAIR customer," said TOC founder Clark Tucker. The Phase II project involves development of a Linux device driver to provide network connectivity over both VME and cPCI backplanes. The work will include development and demonstration of the software, and is expected to span 24 months. By supporting the IPv4 and IPv6 standards, the software will align with the Navy's Open Architecture initiative.
