Rugged Servers with Skylake Architecture

Themis Computer® (Fremont, CA) announced the launch of its next generation XR6 Rugged Enterprise Servers (RES) featuring the newest Intel® Xeon® Scalable (Skylake) Processors.

The first available RES-XR6 server – a 1U with eight front access drives – is comprised of two Intel® Xeon® Gold Skylake processors with up to twenty-four cores per socket, up to 1.5 TB ECC DDR4 2666 MHz Memory, 3PCIe x16 slots, eight SAS3 capable 2.5” front access drive slots for either SSD or HDD storage, and two onboard 1 Gbit Ethernet (optional 10 Gbit Ethernet) ports. Additionally, all XR6 RES servers come with IPMI v2.0, TPM 2.0 and are compatible with popular hypervisors and operating systems.

Optimized for size, weight, and power (SWaP), the system weighs only 22 lbs, is 20” deep, and is capable of meeting a wide variety of MIL-STD environmental specifications. A robust array of high speed I/O, storage options, enhanced reliability features, and expansion choices allow users maximum flexibility for current and future system requirements.

Night Vision Weapon Sight

Harris Corporation (Rochester, NY) has introduced the new F7030 clip-on night vision weapon sight for military use. Developed with longtime partner Knight’s Armament Company (KAC), the F7030 builds on technology used in the widely-fielded KAC AN/PVS-30 night vision sight and includes the latest advancement in night vision image intensification. It can be mounted on standard assault and long-range rifles with day scopes.

The KAC-patented technology and extended focus ensures the accuracy of the day scope boresight. The refractive lens provides high-performance light collection in a lightweight design, and is optimized for use with green or white phosphor image intensifiers. The sight also features the patented Single Inter-changeable Battery (SIB)® that exceeds 24 hours of continuous operation. The highly-efficient power circuit can even run on used batteries providing several additional hours of operation.

Full HD, Uncooled 1080p Thermal Imager

Sierra-Olympic Technologies (Hood River, OR) recently introduced the Vayu HD, an uncooled thermal camera with true high definition (1920 × 1200 pixels) capable of 1080p output. The new thermal imager replaces the recently introduced Viento HD and Viento HD IP67 cameras and features the same longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral response from 8 to 14 μm.

The rugged Vayu HD provides unprecedented image resolution utilizing a vanadium oxide microbolometer (VOx) sensor with a capacity of over 2.3 million pixels on a 12-micron pixel pitch, in a commercially-designed, IP67-environmentally rated, stand-alone camera. Other features include an athermalized 24 mm F1.1 custom-designed optic, 30 Hz frame rate, and three video formats: HD-SDI, h.264 IP-Video, or 16-bit Camera Link output.

Micro Purge System

Aeroprobe Corporation (Christiansburg, VA), a company that provides air data measurement systems to aerospace, automotive, turbo-machinery, wind turbine, and wind tunnel testing industries around the world, is adding a Micro Purge System (μPS) to its line of measurement solutions products. The μPS will allow users to purge the pneumatic system of the μADS of debris and moisture that can develop during normal operation. These elements can influence data acquisition and create functional issues.

The μPS is controlled by a Micro Air Data Computer (μADC), another component of the μADS. As a pump-based purge system, the μPS can be operated without the need for an external compressed air source. Aeroprobe’s μPS is the lightest solution for purge available and can be paired with any of the company’s μADCs.
