RS1104 Rugged ISR Encoder

A new standard for ISR. Crystal Group’s rugged ISR encoder module uses the Haivision Makito X1 encoder to deliver real-time streaming of MISB-compliant full motion video capabilities required for demanding intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.

The fully integrated system combines a Makito X1, eight-port switch, six 2.5” SSD storage drives and dual Intel® Xeon® scalable processors into our RS1104 1U server to optimize performance and SWaP. At just under 22 pounds, this ultra-compact rugged server tackles the workload of three separate 1U units, including two simultaneous compression functions via two separate encode engines. This provides a high-quality video stream for machine learning applications running on the RS1104 and a low-bitrate video stream to reach remote users over constrained network links. The system also delivers efficient, high-performance mission computing, storage, layer 2+ switching, and encoding capability.
