Crystal Group announces the launch of three new rugged servers.

FREMONT, CA: Crystal Group is a leading U.S. designer and manufacturer of rugged computing and networking solutions, announces today the launch of three new rugged servers — the RS4105L22 4U GPU server, RS1.532L21X2F twin server, and Crystal Group FORCE™ RS2606 — all designed for ultra-high ISR performance.

Each server simultaneously delivers a robust performance that allows Crystal Group customers with high-velocity capability, security, and efficiency. When these three servers are combined, they form a flexible, integrated system for real-time high-speed sensor data collection, computation, and daily, hot-swappable data extraction critical to decision-making on the move.

The director of Military Programs for Crystal Group, Beth Otting, commented that to maintain a competitive advantage and handle today's immense data requirements, their customers need potent servers to collect, analyze and prioritize immense amounts of data remotely, unpredictable situations. Currently deployed on allied military aircraft, these rugged servers provide the vital capabilities required for real-time reliability accuracy.

Upgraded to extract and integrate data from numerous sensors through four NVIDIA® Tesla V100 GPUs, the RS4105L22 4U GPU server is a powerhouse of high-capacity storage for sensor fusion, electronic warfare, signal intelligence, radar, C4ISR, and digital signal processing.

Armed with up to 88 cores, the RS1.532L21X2F 1.5U rugged twin server provides high-speed processing in a small form factor by consolidating two computers' capabilities into one unit with front I/O. Each of the dual X11 motherboards can be tailored with up to three PCIe slots for increased bandwidth. Its extreme compute density allows artificial intelligence, real-time decision making, and machine learning in a compact footprint.

Created and qualified for airborne jets, the Crystal Group FORCE™ RS2606 rugged server merges both high compute and maximum storage capacity in a single chassis and eight SAS SSDs in the removable media canister. Tailored with up to six modules, this unit boasts a detachable media canister, redundant AC power supplies, and advanced thermal management to boost compute-intensive workloads at the edge.

Like Crystal Group's complete portfolio of rugged and industrial computing products, these servers are engineered to provide seamless performance in the most distressed environments while exceeding military and industrial standards.

Crystal Group provides the latest, most innovative technology to keep pace with the defense and commercial markets' ever-changing demands. Crystal Group is at the forefront of innovation and continues to lead the industry in providing scalable, reliable, and secure solutions to enable success for its customers.
