The 2018 Annual Meeting and Exposition of the Association of the U.S. Army this week drew more than 31,000 people from 100 countries to Washington, DC. More than 700 exhibitors showed their next-generation offerings at the defense forum, which carried the theme of ‘Ready Today, More Lethal Tomorrow.’ Ruggedization and weight-reduction proved to be key attributes in these new product introductions.
Systel launched two new products at the show: Raven-Strike and HR3000. “Systel’s tactical capabilities support the Army’s rapid prototyping initiatives and deployments for multi-domain operations,” said Aneesh Kothari, vice president of marketing for Systel. “Both Raven-Strike and HR3000 are robust mission computers, purpose-built to meet the demands of modern fighting vehicles.”
Raven-Strike, a fully sealed and rugged system, boasts minimal SWaP-2C and maximum CPU and GPU core density. HR3000, a member of Systel’s Puma-Bolt class space-saver server series, is a SWaP-2C optimized 3U rack-mount server featuring edge-computing processing power in a half-rack width, short-depth form factor.
