San Diego, CA, United States, January 26, 2016 -- Chassis Plans, a leading manufacturer of rugged industrial and military computer and LCD systems, has provided a quantity of fully integrated transit case systems for Operation Peace Dragon. These are rugged field-deployed systems initially for deployment in harsh military environments. Operation Peace Dragon is a US Air Force program in support of the IqAF for Iraqi border patrol utilizing King Air 350 ER intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft. These aircraft are equipped with the Lynx-2 synthetic aperture radar units built by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems of San Diego, Calif.
Included in the system is a semi-custom M3U rackmount computer providing 10 front mounted hot-swap raid drives and 2 rear mounted system drives, also hot swap, all in a rugged aluminum 3U enclosure. A server-class ATX motherboard supports 2 XEON processors and 512GB of RAM. The M3U is manufactured using aircraft grade 5052-H32 aluminum with a milled front panel for exceptional strength. A front door provides both an air filter and a honeycomb EMI filter. Included is a Syscool adaptive fan controller to modulate the speed of the long-life aluminum body fans for quiet reliable operation.
An included TFX1-19 rackmount display provides three 19-inch 1280×1024 LCD displays. This is a rugged rackmount LCD display system specifically designed for transit case installation and provides exceptional display real-estate in a compact portable package.
Also included is a CKX 1U waterproof rackmount keyboard. This unit provides a sealed full-travel keyboard and a 38mm sealed trackball. The display and keyboard are specifically mounted with friction slides to prevent motion while in use which is especially critical in airborne installations.
