Crystal Group rugged servers will be deployed in radar systems used to detect incoming missile and artillery attacks, as well as attacks from hypersonic weapons. These radar systems are essential to the protection and safety of U.S. soldiers and civilians around the world.

“Winning this program represents so much more than just a win, it is a renewed pledge to Crystal Group and proves to our employee-owners that their relentless commitment to our customers does not go unnoticed,” said Lindsay Palma, program manager at Crystal Group. “We understand the importance of mission success for the end-user and are ecstatic to grow Crystal Group’s presence on this program that is protecting our warfighters each and every day.”

For this program, Crystal Group is supplying a network attached storage unit, equipped with Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program capabilities, enabling encrypted data transmission in edge environments. Crystal Group’s advanced engineering team developed this custom cybersecurity-optimized solution that meets all requirements.

“Our participation in this program unlocks a new realm of opportunity for our customers’ cybersecurity challenges and enables them to pair our proven agile engineering development with industry-leading data protection,” said Chad Hutchinson, Vice President, Engineering at Crystal Group.

The ground-based radar systems are deployed at the tactical edge where environmental and electromagnetic concerns are significant, posing numerous challenges for traditional compute hardware.
