RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 3 Oct. 2016. General Micro Systems Inc. (GMS) in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is introducing the SB2002-MD Golden-Eyes II small lightweight server-class ultra-rugged computer for avionics and aerospace applications that operate in harsh operating conditions.

The multi-domain server has two isolated and separate Red (non-secure) and Black (classified) network and server domains, and separate power supplies. The unit is for isolated processing, virtual machines, MILS-targeted red/black separated networks, redundant host processors, or any system requiring separated or dual-class CPU configurations.

The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD supports a multi-domain, NSA-secure architecture, and has two independent Intel Xeon D-based servers each with as many as 16 cores, and as much as 64 gigabytes of DDR4 memory with Error Correcting Code (ECC).

Designed to withstand harsh outdoor environments where it may be exposed to rain, sun, dirt, and battlefield shock and vibration, the Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD offers independent, electrically isolated power supplies as each domain is equipped with its own MIL-STD-1275 power conditioning module (PCM).

The high-speed connector enables high-speed I/O access and supports two channels of 10 Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0 for future modification to evolving high-speed technology requirements.

Each domain's removable 2.5-inch SATA or NVMe SSD has an enhanced door design and sealed drive bay, offering users the ability to access, open, and pull the drive quickly, while system internals remain protected. An optional fixed M.2 solid-state drive for the operating system also is available.

At 133 cubic inches and 10 pounds, the Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD offers computing density in one footprint with several independent computers, several cores, and dual RAM banks.

The rugged mobile server has the GMS patent-pending RuggedCool technology, and can operate in temperatures from -40 to 75 degrees Celsius, or to 85 C with the use of a thermal accessory. The Golden-Eyes II SB2002-MD is a stand-alone, fanless, and is mounted to a metal cold plate as a conductive thermal path.
