NCS Technologies Bunker XRV-5241

Rugged server parachutes into military, first responder market

Computer manufacturer NCS Technologies has announced its rugged, short-depth Bunker XRV-5241 server designed for tight spaces and harsh conditions on land or at sea.

The Bunker XRV-5241 is built for rugged service, from tactical military deployments to civilian emergency response and outdoor construction and transportation, the company said in an announcement.  The server has a 1U form factor and meets all relevant military performance specifications, including MIL-STD-810G, MIL-S-901D and MIL-STD-167 environmental, shock and vibration requirements.

"This equipment, in a transit case, will likely be parachuted into service in tactical deployments," said John Callahan, director of marketing at NCS Technologies, in an interview with IDG News Service. The Bunker XRV-5241 can withstand a free-fall drop of around 1 meter, but for parachute deployment it needs to be packaged into the case for additional protection, IDG added.

The server's 18-inch depth enables it to fit into tight spaces, such as those found in shipboard rack environments. The redundant hot-swappable AC/DC power supplies mean the server can be deployed in land, air and sea operations with the switch of a power supply module. Low voltage kits are also available for high temperature environments, the company said.

Bunker XRV-5241 is designed for quick and easy maintenance in the field and is equipped with an enhanced KVM over LAN feature for remote appliance management.

The server is priced starting at $3,699, according to the IDG report.
