The company will showcase its proven expertise in designing and manufacturing rugged computers specifically for Size, Weight and Power (SwaP) sensitive harsh military and industrial environments.

Featured in Crystal Group’s exhibition stand are examples of a high performance rugged computer and a SWaP sensitive but powerful rugged embedded computer.

Crystal Group’s RS363SF Rugged Computer and RE1401 Rugged Embedded Computer (NUC).


The RS363SF Rugged 3U Server is powered by an Intel® processor and provides high-performance computing and high capacity data storage in a small size SWaP package with a depth under 13 inches (33.02 cm) to fit virtually any rack space. The unit’s versatility offers three (3) removeable 3.5” HDD or six (6) SATA/SAS bays. The RS363SF CPU options include leading edge Intel Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge or Broadwell designs.

The RE1401 NUC (Next Unit Computing) measures 6.3” x 1.9” x 4.8”, weighs only 2 lbs. and is small enough for placement in size-constrained areas yet rugged enough to withstand the harshest environments including shock and vibration. It is ideal for military and industrial installations requiring compute processing and data collection where size and weight are a consideration.
