Rugged servers for low SWaP airborne applications

The new RE1529 rugged embedded computer from Crystal Group serves
as the perfect platform for low SWaP aerial applications such as helicopters,
where size and weight limitations are severe. The purpose-built RE1529 is part
of the company’s Rugged Embedded (RE) product line, and provides server-class
performance in a compact, embedded footprint.

The reliable, feature-rich and configurable RE1529 is engineered with
the latest commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies, including Intel chipsets
and processors, stabilised in a compact, rugged enclosure to provide
robust compute power over a long operational life in even the most extreme

Manufactured with lightweight composites and delivered with Xeon D
multi-core processors, the RE1529 rugged embedded computers also feature up
to 128GB of ECC DDR4 RAM, nine internal 7/9mm SATA solid-state drive (SSD)
bays, and flexible I/O in a rugged package measuring just 15.24 x 39.12 x 24.38
cm and weighing 3.4kg.

Key features also include an incredibly flexible server class
architecture that also accommodates customers’ specific input/output and
third-party card requirements; ability to survive extreme vibration and environmental
conditions that meet or exceed all military requirements; sixteen-core Intel
Xeon D processor with data storage capacity in a fully customisable, scalable
system to meet both current and future requirements; designed and tested for
SWaP sensitive applications including airborne and transit case use with a
minimal footprint; wide range voltage inputs; and virtually maintenance
free with top performance in harsh conditions including temperature extremes,
high shock and vibration, high humidity, high altitudes, and dust.

The RE1529 features high-quality components in a rugged enclosure made
from carbon fibre composites and billet milled, strain-hardened aluminium. The rugged
embedded computers can withstand the most challenging applications in harsh
conditions and extreme environments, including vibration-intense helicopter
