Rugged AR1 Mission Computer

Rugged AR1 Mission Computer

The AR1 is a small, rugged, and SWaP-optimized tactical mission computer with a Core i3 4th Gen Quad Core CPU and one internal SSD drive. The AR1 is fully conduction cooled and allows for the addition of up to two internal cards (1553, GPS, D/A, etc) for expanded IO capability. This rugged mission computer utilizes proprietary thermal transfer technology to cool the system without the use of moving parts. The chassis is completely sealed and is built to survive extreme temperature, shock, and vibration.
