Autonomous vehicles (AVs) including fast-growing fleets of self-driving cars and trucks are poised to revolutionize transportation. The global automotive industry is on the cusp of significant change, enabled by innovative automated driving system (ADS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) technologies in a fast-growing market estimated to reach $7 trillion by 2050; yet, widespread deployment hinges almost […]
Ruggedized servers from Crystal Group Inc., leveraging VMware and placed in substations, provide the security-enabled real-time platform needed to manage and enhance the energy grid.
The digital universe is rapidly expanding, as organizations and individuals everywhere use digital devices to capture, share, use, and store data. Organizations worldwide increasingly rely on fast, frequent, and reliable access to growing volumes of data. Data centers from the enterprise to the tactical edge are modernizing to meet current and future data demands, transforming critical data-handling and storage infrastructures with the use of modern, high-performance hardware, software, and hybrid technologies.
This document shares insight on how branch military organizations and industries are utilizing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) to better manage, provide access to, and protect valuable data collected in extreme tactical environments found in the field, at sea, in the air or in space.
This document provides system engineers with an overview to understand why ruggedized electronics are critical components of Direction Finding and Locating Systems.
Power consumption in digital processors for systems designers. This document provides system designers with key elements in understanding multiple source power consumption in digital processors and supporting chipsets found in computational server hardware. Understanding thermal management in digital electronics comprises a vast number of design considerations that must be accounted for before fielding computational hardware for low maintenance installations into high stress environments and operating conditions. The paper identifies these factors and describes the various physical properties that system designers need to understand when designing servers which operate in harsh environments.
This document provides documentation that Crystal Group power supplies are 400 Hz compatible. Included in the document is empirical test data that backs up that claim. Crystal Group often receives requirements to accommodate 400 Hz power input on our servers, switches, displays, and in general, any equipment targeted for certain airborne installations.
This document addresses high-end computer integration associated with oil well head and down-hole monitoring and provides suggestions for successful system integration for reliable jobsite operations.
