RS265P Rugged 2U Carbon Fiber Server

Compact, Powerful, and Ultra-Lightweight Rugged 2U
Weight relates to mission duration and fuel costs. Whether discussing UAVs, transit case mobility, or airborne workstations, weight has a significant impact on operational performance. Smaller, lighter, lower power is always better when it comes to high-end mobile computing. Crystal Group gives your mission these capabilities with a composite carbon fiber construction server boasting a mere 60% of the weight of a 20” deep rugged chassis.
