Rugged embedded computer designed to meet SWaP requirements for C4ISR

The RE1218M rugged embedded computer from is designed for workstation and/or storage capability in extreme environments with reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) requirements. It is targeted at command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications.

The RE1218M accommodates as many as eight 2.5-inch solid-state drives, can handle one PCI2 x16 expansion card, and may be mounted in any orientation. The processor is powered by the Intel Haswell, Xeon D, or Skylake CPUs and has a modular I/O plate with MIL-C-26482 military circular connectors. The RE1218M can be tray- or fixed-mounted and supports expansion for 1x PCIe 3.0 x16 and uses rugged MIL-C-26482 military circular connectors. It is compatible with Windows 10, 6.5/6.6, Windows Server 2008 and 2012, and VMWare. The aluminum-chassis system conforms to MIL-STD-810F (516) specifications for vibration and can handle 20G of functional shock for 11 msec. The unit measures 4.1 inches high by 10.25 inches wide by 14.4 inches deep, excluding connectors, and is cooled by high-speed/high-volume thermostatically controlled fans.
