Are you new here?

At Crystal Group, we are fueled by creativity, technical expertise, and tenacity, we push the boundaries to achieve what is needed. The work we do is cutting edge and innovative, providing our team the opportunity to work on some of the most advanced technology available in the military, industrial and commercial markets.

Military & Defense

With decades of experience designing field-tested and combat-proven military computer products and integrated solutions, the U.S. Department of Defense and global allied nations deploy Crystal Group rugged military servers, displays, and embedded systems with confidence to keep warfighters and front-line armed forces safe, informed and equipped for mission success.

Critical tactical edge compute features include:

  • Impenetrable physical and data security
  • Powerful high-performance data collection, processing and storage
  • Ultra-low latency
  • Compact and lightweight form factors


Companies are increasingly investing in artificial intelligence (AI), autonomous operations, and hyper-converged infrastructure to elevate performance, improve safety, and lockdown data. But to gain the real-time accuracy and reliability of these game-changing advancements, the technology often has to “live” in remote, unpredictable, and unmanned edge environments where traditional computers fail.

Demanding industrial applications, like trucking, construction, agriculture, oil and gas, mining, and power substations, require Crystal Group’s rugged industrial solutions to integrate compute power, speed, accuracy, and security into systems proven to deliver seamless operation in the most punishing, ever-changing conditions.

Critical compute features for industrial applications include:

  • State-of-the-art physical and data security
  • Ultra-low latency
  • Powerful high-performance data collection, processing and storage
  • Built-in redundancy
  • Advanced thermal management
  • Compact and lightweight form factors
