Crystal Group Provides General Dynamics C4 Systems with Rugged Server Solution for U.S. Army Prophet Program

Hiawatha, Iowa, USA – Crystal Group Inc., a trusted manufacturer of rugged commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) custom-developed computers, displays, switches, and storage devices, announced today that a new case study featuring prime contractor and system integrator, General Dynamics C4 Systems is available on the Crystal Group website.

Crystal Group worked closely with General Dynamics’ engineering team to understand their needs and those of the U.S. Army’s Prophet Program. This teaming resulted in a rapid response to the Army’s requirements and improved product integrity as detailed in the case study.

Prophet is the U.S. Army’s top SIGINT program that enables tactical commanders to securely and accurately detect, identify, locate and deter a wide range of signal emissions on the battlefield. The system is comprised of electronic components that are vehicle-mounted or soldier-transportable.

General Dynamics C4 Systems chose Crystal Group’s RS112 1U for upgrade projects based on past performance and reliability of the company’s rugged servers. Crystal Group’s responsiveness, fast turnaround time, and extensive configuration management were also important determining factors.
