Vehicle Management System

Vehicle Management System

Application Ready Systems

Vehicle Management Systems (VMS) are used to perform a multitude of functions on critical military platforms including manned and unmanned military aircraft, helicopters, shipboard vessels, autonomous missile systems and military ground vehicles, and function as the core control element within a redundant control system.

A single VMS solution can perform functions such as vehicle stability and control, guidance and navigation and more by collecting, packaging and transmitting local discrete, analog and digital data inputs and can control local functions based on received data.

Additionally, these rugged systems must meet stringent environmental requirements such as shock, vibration and extreme temperatures within SWaP-constrained environments. These attributes are inherent in most COTS designs and offer customers readily-available, interoperable, field-proven systems and subsystems out of the box.

NAI’s rugged VMS systems offer proven solutions and are ruggedized to withstand -40º C to +71º C and qualified to MIL-STD-1275D & MIL-STD-704A with 50 ms holdup (power supply); MIL-STD-461F and MIL-STD-810G.

COSA Design Advantages (1:54)

Open Systems Architecture

NAI's modular, highly Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) enables you to meet your most demanding system requirements– in less time while reducing risks associated with custom designs.

If one of the off-the-shelf Vehicle Management System configurations described below do not meet your requirements, you can configure a semi-custom solution of your own.

Simply select a rugged enclosure of your choice. NAI will populate it with I/O boards, smart function modules, single board computers (SBCs), power supplies, and software libraries of your choice.

Add your IP to our pre-integrated, fully tested systems and move from specification to deployment without extended delivery schedules or NRE.
