Shock. Vibration. Temperature. Humidity. Dust. Dirt. Gravity.
Crystal Group’s ruggedized products are designed to operate in some of the most challenging environments. We build our reliable hardware solutions to keep your mission-critical systems, command and control platforms, and key infrastructure nodes running when they’re needed most – no matter how extreme the surroundings.
Our best-in-class process combines leading-edge commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) utilization and custom electrical design and development to produce open architecture systems tailored to your unique requirements.
Our engineers have perfected techniques to extend performance, including:
- Stabilizing components that are susceptible to damage from shock and vibration;
- Increasing air flow to hot components; and
- Improving the conductive and convective heat transfer mechanisms of the components to extend the thermal limits of the COTS motherboards.
We routinely design and test to:
- MIL-STD-167-1A and MIL-STD-461E/F
- FCC Part 15 Class A/B
- RTCA DO-160
Using these techniques and tests, combined with skilled structural chassis design, enables superior environmental and electromagnetic performance. These techniques can extend a rugged COTS server to 6GRMS vibration, 40G crash safety shock, and full performance in a 71°C ambient temperature.
Crystal Group also specializes in high brightness, high resolution LCD displays packaged in a resilient enclosure. We focus heavy ground mobile vehicle Vetronics, as well as military helo’s, fighters, and Boeing commercial wide-body applications.
