Rugged server selected for Army intelligence system

Defence company Leidos has selected Crystal Group’s RS378 3U rugged server for the Leidos eXpeditionary RT (XRT) system, a real-time signal intelligence system used by the US Army.

Leidos’s XRT system is a scalable, high-performance computing platform that extracts real-time, context-sensitive situational awareness conditions from large quantities and disparate sources of data. The system conducts data analysis on-site and in real time for in-theatre mission planning, intelligence and tactical operations that lead to identifying and locating the enemy.

Crystal Group’s RS378 rugged 3U server offers high-end compute processing for military and industrial applications. Featuring Intel’s Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell or Broadwell CPU options, it is configurable with eight removable 3.5″ HDD or 2.5″ SATA or SAS bays and can be configured for up to 16 hot-swappable 2.5″ HDDs in drive packs. The system is expandable with up to seven full-height slots and can be rack mounted on Delrin glides, Jonathan rails or fixed mounted. It is 20″ in depth and weighs between 18.1 and 20.9 kg.

Crystal Group’s rugged servers are said to provide the portability and durability needed to operate in hostile environments while providing the high compute processing necessary to recognise and overcome potential battlefield threats. The Leidos XRT System is integral to the Army’s operations in the battlefield and Crystal says it is proud to be a part of this capability.
