RUGGED COMPUTERS: Z Microsystems partners with Eurolink Systems to deliver rugged servers to Italian Navy

Z Microsystems, a provider of mission-ready computing systems, has partnered with Eurolink Systems, an Italy-based defense systems integrator, to provide its ZX series of rugged computer servers to the Italian navy. Eurolink Systems will supply the ZX1, ZX2, and ZX3 servers to a global communication supplier for integration into on-board computing systems used in the FREMM European multimission frigate program.

The FREMM European multimission frigate is a joint program between France and Italy that originally included plans for a total of 27 FREMM frigates to be built: 17 for the French Navy and 10 for the Italian Navy. The frigate is a ship designed to operate in anti-air, anti-submarine, and anti-ship warfare, with the capability of carrying out deep strikes against land targets.

"We are happy to working with Z Microsystems to integrate their rugged servers for this very important program," says Pietro Lapiana, CEO of Eurolink Systems. "Partnering with Z Microsystems allows us to deliver a complete turnkey offering of products, services, and applications in the defense and aerospace markets in Europe."

The new ZX 1-2-3 series are low-profile, rack-mountable, rugged servers from Z Microsystems. The ZX1 is 1.72 inches (1U) high, the ZX2 is 3.45 inches (2U) high, and the ZX3 is 5.25 inches (3U). All are 20 inches deep. Each is compact and lightweight, saving rack space while delivering a flexible, high-performance solution for mission-ready applications.

"As in the U.S., the European military is looking for less size and weight, more flexibility, and higher performance in computers and servers," says Jack Wade, CEO of Z Microsystems. "Eurolink Systems has been a great partner for us to be able to penetrate this market and show that our servers are the best suited for these types of applications."

The ZX 1-2-3 Series integrates the latest computing technology with a system architecture supporting any extended ATX form-factor motherboards with support for up to 3, 6, or 12 rugged hot-pluggable TP2 removable drives, a slim line DVD-RW dual layer, and an environmental control board to support proper thermal regulation.

The ZX 1-2-3 Series, designed and built for the harshest military environments, sports a chassis designed to meet MIL-STD-810G requirements for shock, vibration, humidity, and high/low temperature.
