Rugged computer able to combine classified and non-classified data introduced by GMS

Posted by John Keller

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., 21 Aug. 2013. General Micro Systems Inc. (GMS) in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., is introducing the SB1002R-MD Golden Eye ultra-small, secure, ultra-rugged, multi-domain computer workstation that combines two isolated systems -- one operating in the black (classified) domain and the other in the red (non-secure) domain -- in one unit.

What makes this possible is Golden Eye's advanced design and NSA-approved architecture, GMS officials say. The SB1002R-MD rugged computer houses an independent computer for each side (red/black) in the same enclosure -- sharing only the secure internal DC power -- and uses a proprietary mechanical system to isolate red from black domains electrically and from any electromagnetic force (EMF). No radiation crosses between the two.

The same system to be used in several military programs with varying needs and applications. Once the secure black domain is NSA-certified, reconfiguration and software modification of the non-secure red domain -- changing I/O to meet the needs of a certain vehicle, for example -- can be completed without recertification.

The Golden Eye's two independent computers each use an Intel Haswell Quad Core processor with hyperthreading for to four logical cores, each operating at to 2.3 GHz, with ability to turboboost to 3.3 GHz.

Each CPU is coupled with to 32 gigabytes of RAM organized in two banks that support error correcting code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides two bit error detection and one bit error correction, and supports to 1600 mega transfers per second (MTS) between CPU and memory.

Each domain I/O subsystem supports seven Gigabit Ethernet ports with TCP/IP offloading engine and six USB 2.0 ports. Each computer also comprises its own, onboard 512 gigabyte solid-state drive, and can be equipped with to 512 gigabytes of removable SATA SSD drive that is sealed and keyed to operate only in the domain for which it was configured.

For extra secure operation, a tamper-proof function recognizes unfamiliar access of software, boot or BIOS, and locks the system, not allowing a restart without a controlled reauthorization process.

A sealed, fanless system, Golden Eyes can be mounted to any conduction-cooled surface. The unit is equipped with patent-pending cooling that gives it the ability to operate from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius at full load without throttling the CPU.

Special mechanical has enable Golden Eyes to comply with Mil-STD-810G tests sustaining 120g. This level of g-force, as well as Golden Eye's extreme operating temperature range, is an unheard-of ultra-rugged capability for any system containing high-performance processor chips.
