Suitcase computer steals the show at AFCEA WEST 2023

Our new RE2500 portable workstation computer made its tradeshow debut at AFCEA WEST 2023, showcasing our ability in rapid prototyping and built-to-order hardware. This show-stopping workstation boasts many unique features like its size, thermal management, and radio silent abilities, making it a great addition to Crystal Group rugged computer products.

The RE2500 was created for a defense organization who required a forward-deployed workstation in a smaller footprint than their current compute solution. The most significant challenges to this customer were the implementation of radio silent capabilities and a drastic decrease in size, all without sacrificing power and function.  To meet these requirements, our Advanced Program Pursuits engineering team built the RE2500 in just under 45 days.

Housed in an integrated, protected, and waterproof case, this portable workstation is overhead bin packable in any standard commercial aircraft, allowing easy and efficient access in the field for data collection and processing. The RE2500 is compact but has exceptional storage capacity of 30TB with removable SSDs. This system has a variety of I/O features including USB 3.1 and C.

This device is ready to provide ultra-portable processing in a cyber compliant workstation. Featuring unreleased Crystal Group innovative JSIG compatible Tactical Advanced Zeroization Response (TAZR) technology, this system wipes drive keys and CMOS data with a flip of a switch. Given its modular design, other features can be embedded or selected as standard modules to make this system custom to any customer requirements.
