Under the contract, Curtiss will provide digital signal processors, buffer memory cards, SVME-412 DSP, SCP-122 SBC, SPMC-230 StarLink modules and MM-6790F/8M Flash module.

The Centurion Weapon System is based on the proven Phalanx system for intercepting rockets, artillery and mortar rounds in the air.

The boards will control the system's target-tracking system radar and compute fire correlations in the main system computer.
