Crystal Group showcases critical mission technology for counter-networking support at SO/LIC Symposium & Exhibition

HIAWATHA, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2018 -- Crystal Group Inc., a leading designer/manufacturer of rugged computer and electronic hardware, will showcase how its comprehensive suite of field proven rugged products can leverage emerging technologies to unify interagency operations at the Special Operations/Low Intensity Conflict (SO/LIC) Symposium & Exhibition 2018, February 28March 2 in Arlington, Virginia.


Mission critical success of Special Operations Forces count on technology that is rugged, flexible, easy to set up and cyber protected. Crystal Group rugged products are designed to provide robust and reliable technology to keep warfighters, security agencies and allied coalitions connected and informed in the face of extreme elements, such as temperature extremes, high shock and vibration, electromagnetic interference (EMI), and humidity.

At SO/LIC Booth #313 Crystal Group's subject matter experts will demonstrate the company's portfolio of rugged solutions, including:

Crystal Group's new RS1.533S18G Rugged 1.5U Server is rack-mounted, 18 inches deep and weighs 25-30 lbs. The all-aluminum chassis with internal cross-braces and stabilized components withstand intense shock and vibration. An immediate drop-in replacement for currently fielded systems, the RS1.533S18G features dual Intel processors, up to 512GB of DDR4 memory, up to nine removable SSDs, and USB 3.0, audio, and Gigabit LAN interfaces.

Recently released Crystal Group FORCE™ (Fully Optimized Rugged Computer Equipment) 1U, 2U, and 3U Rugged Servers are high-bandwidth, low-latency, high-performance computing (HPC) systems optimized for size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). Crystal Group FORCE Rugged Servers with Intel Xeon® Scalable processors and state-of-the-art liquid cooling (2U dissipates 280W of CPU power), offer superior compute and greater reliability in harsh elements, such as shock and vibration, temperature extremes, and humidity.

The RS114PS18 Rugged Carbon Fiber Server delivers high-end computing performance in a 1U carbon fiber chassis that offers leading edge Intel® Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, or Haswell options. The unit measures 17.5" wide, 1.75" in height and 18" in depth, weighing 12-14 lbs. The RS114PS18 offers up to 512 GB memory, up to six removeable 2.5" drive bays and is expandable with one slot.

The RE1312 Rugged Embedded Computer features a compact carbon fiber composition construction for low SWaP and powerful Dual or Quad Core i7 CPU options or 6 cores Xeon– D. The RE1312 Rugged Embedded Computer operates over a wide temperature range from -40°C to 60°C and with 18V to 36V DC input. A tough carbon fiber composite frame serves simultaneously as the entire system's structural backbone and EMI shield.

Crystal Group RCS7450-24 Rugged Switch combines enterprise-class functionality and MIL-SPEC environmental performance to provide reliable, high-throughput connectivity and data handling in deployed environments. Crystal Group scalable, rugged network switches bring Ruckus® ICX® enterprise-level, stackable switch technology to the tactical edge in rugged, lightweight, and compact enclosures – a choice of transit case or 19-inch rack with strain-hardened, aircraft-grade aluminum – designed to keep critical electronics connected.
