Rugged AR2

The AR2 is a small, rugged, and SWaP-optimized tactical mission computer with a Core i7 2.3GHz 4th Gen Quad Core CPU and internal SSD drive. It’s fully conduction cooled and allows for the addition of up to four internal cards (1553, GPS, D/A, etc) for expanded IO capability. The AR2 utilizes proprietary thermal transfer technology to cool the system without the use of moving parts. It’s completely sealed and is built to survive extreme temperature, shock, and vibration.
