CP Technologies launches rugged small tactical computer system
CP Technologies launched its new rugged small tactical computer system (STCS), which it claims is the first sealed, flexible processing system on the market. It is designed to be a fast, light, and small system that is rugged enough to be survivable in the field and powerful enough for data processing, ISR processing, and mapping.
The sealed systems are intended to be configurable for multiple deployed harsh environments for tactical networks including IP65 environments as well as harsh environmental specs such as MIL-STD-810G, 901E, and 461G. Each rack is configurable as a standalone system or as components in a larger deployed network. The customizable racks are with multiple servers, switches, and routers based on customer requirements. The system uses 16-Core/32 thread Xeon processors and 128 GB memory. All components are sealed without fans to increase mean time between failures (MTTBF) and reduce energy costs.
Mike McCormack, president of CP Technologies, noted, “Our customers in the field needed a flexible processing system that was lighter, faster, and smaller, while still being rugged. We created a small form factor solution that they could toss in the back of a truck while still offering the power to handle their processing needs. We’re excited to launch this industry leading system to meet all of our customers’ needs both in deployable defense and industrial applications.”
