Ampyx Power selects Abaco for onboard computer
Ampyx Power completed the selection and purchasing process for the onboard computer of AP3. We chose the ‘single board computer’ SBC 314 3U VPX from Abaco. The Lynx Software Technologies real-time operating system, the LynxOS-178, will run this onboard computer. Ampyx Power signed another contract with Lynx last year. This combination of commercial off-the-shelve (COTS) hardware and software complies with the certification standards that Ampyx Power developed in conjunction with the European Aviation Authority EASA, in order to build a robust and reliable Airborne Wind Energy System.
