Designer/manufacturer of rugged computer and electronic hardware, Crystal Group, has announced a significant milestone of having delivered 15,000 rugged servers to the U.S. Navy since 2008.
Crystal Group designs and manufactures custom compute systems fortified to withstand shock, vibration and temperature extremes, as well as sea spray and salt fog characteristic to wet and humid deployment environments of the U.S. Navy. By leveraging “commercial-off-the-shelf innovation and through internal production capabilities,” the company would deliver quality solutions fast–enabling defense customers to stay ahead of adversaries.
“We have been successful at meeting the demands of the Navy by fully anticipating the factors that can impact mission-critical technology,” said Jim Shaw, executive vice president of engineering at Crystal Group. “This is a significant milestone, as it demonstrates our capability to engineer resilient and consistently reliable solutions that our warfighters need and deserve.”
Crystal Group’s systems would meet the “quality, security and durability” requirements of the military. As compute and cyber requirements grow, the company focuses on balancing needs with cost and effectiveness. Crystal Group engineers build low-SWaP solutions that enclose “extreme” processing power in “flexible and modular” architectures to help customers tackle complex challenges of today and tomorrow.
Crystal Group delivered its first rugged server to the U.S. Navy in 2008 and has since become a trusted partner to the Department of Defense as well as leading government contractors such as Lockheed Martin, DRS, General Dynamics, and Progeny Systems among others.
The company supplied over 150 variants of high-performance servers under a wide range of Navy contracts and programs such as the Aviation Data Management and Control System (ADMACS), Automated Digital Network System (ADNS), Integrated Shipboard Network System (ISNS), Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES), Acoustic Rapid Commercial off-the-shelf Insertion (A-RCI), and many more.
