SAVE System Integration Development Chassis

The DK3-SAVE is a development chassis for the test and integration of SAVE compliant systems intended for deployment in army ground vehicles. Standardized A-Kit/Vehicle Envelope (SAVE) chassis, conform to size, weight, power, connector requirements and electrical interfaces for C5ISR systems under the SAVE standard. The DK3- SAVE development chassis and backplane supports development of VPX and SOSA aligned payloads common to systems conforming to the SAVE directives.

It includes the complete connector complement under the standard thus enabling streamlined testing of target payloads. Development chassis for VPX and SOSA aligned module payloads. The DK3 / DK6 for 3U and 6U VPX system design, support air and conduction cooled modules with quick conversion that tracks and streamlines your development cycle.
