Six slot short chassis for SOSA
Elma Electronic has released a rugged, short 1/2 ATR designed for the SOSA specification.
The ATR-3600S is a six-slot chassis that accepts 3U plug-in cards (PICs) as well as a VITA 62 power supply, all aligned to the Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA).
The ATR-3600S can be integrated with plug-in cards such as compute- or I/O-intensive processors, Ethernet and PCIe switches, PNT and RF transceivers, and a wide range of interface connections are supported.
The modular chassis offers a robust set of features for reliable and easy operation. It is designed to meet MIL-STD-810 and can be configured for any number of mission-critical applications such as tactical communications, electronic warfare and signal intelligence.
A USB-based maintenance aggregator port on the front panel facilitates simplified servicing. The aluminum dip-brazed exterior meets rugged requirements.

The lightweight unit can be used in compact, low load applications and includes several military grade components, such as MIL-STD-38999 connectors and high-altitude fan tray that operates under extreme conditions. The power supply and line filter combination provides EMC shielding compliant to MIL-STD-461E.
“The increased availability of plug-in cards aligned to SOSA is accelerating the speed of integration and enabling more rapid field testing of complex sensor systems. The ATR-3600S builds on that by giving integrators a COTS-based, ready-to-deploy, SOSA aligned chassis to host a range of SOSA plug-in cards,” said Mark Littlefield, director of system products for Elma Electronic.
