Custom Solutions Used In Demanding Military and Commercial Applications

NCS Rugged Mission Systems solutions provide mission-critical technologies that survive in the harshest environments.

When the mission takes you out of the office where data-center-grade computing hardware is not an option, our specialized team will develop custom solutions to meet your mission needs. Whether using COTS hardware or designing systems from the ground up, NCS provides the latest technologies to ensure system performance and functionality under extreme conditions.

Our specialized design team ensures our solutions meet unique form factor, dimensional, and port placement requirements. We have 20+ years of experience providing compute solutions for traditional data centers and for outside of the data center in environments where typical computers cannot survive.

Streamlined Design Cycle

Our horizontally integrated facility houses manufacturing, engineering, inventory, and 3D print manufacturing. By collocating the electrical, mechanical, and software engineering teams, we can take a product from design to manufacturing efficiently and rapidly. Our in-house capabilities also include systems integration and mechanical labs for validation testing. We work with accredited labs for comprehensive testing, including functional, performance, noise and radio emissions, shock, drop, pitch, roll and barge shock.

Our onsite 3D print facility provides on-demand printing to build prototypes and test designs. This capability streamlines the design cycle and shortens delivery time. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing line provides the flexibility needed to build systems in any standard or customized configurations and capacity to meet volume requirements. Robotics augment our hands-on manufacturing capability for projects that demand extreme and exacting precision.

Quality and security permeate everything we do. We operate our facility in accordance with an ISO 9001, 1400, and 28000-registered Integrated Management System. We tightly control access to the facility to provide the added assurance needed to perform ITAR-related work in a secure environment.

Our products are custom designed around COTS technologies. NCS products incorporate cyber resilient technology to meet all requirements for cybersecurity. All products meet or exceed typical MIL-STDs for ground, vehicles, shipboard, and subsurface.

There are nine classes of servers and storage solutions in the NCS branded family:

RMS-1000D - The RMS-1000D family of 1U Dual servers incorporates two servers into a single 1U chassis. This unique server delivers the highest density in a single 1U rack server.

RMS-1000R - The RMS-1000R family of 1U rear I/O servers delivers a powerful computing system in a traditional rear I/O configuring while minimizing size, weight and power consumption at an industry-leading price.

RMS-1001R - The RMS-1001R family of 1U servers incorporates a mini-ITX motherboard with 7th generation Intel i7 series processors to provide a low power solution for cost sensitive applications.

RMS-1018 - The Vortex RMS1018 delivers the full functionality of a powerful workstation in a convenient 1U rack mount form factor and is deployable both shipboard and ashore.

RMS-1500R - The RMS-1500R family of 1 ½ U rear I/O servers delivers a dual processor server with 4 PCIe slots, while minimizing the amount of rack space used.  This powerful yet flexible computing system provides flexibility and computing power at an industry-leading price.

RMS-2000F - RMS-2000F family of 2U front I/O servers deliver a dual processor based server with up to 5 PCIe slots. This server delivers maximum compute and I/O in a rugged 2U chassis that is only 18 inches in depth.

RMS-2001F - RMS-2001F family of 2U front I/O servers deliver a dual processor based server that supports multiple NVIDIA GPGPUs.. This high-performance compute server delivers maximum compute and I/O in a rugged 2U chassis that is only 18 inches in depth.

RMS-9000T - RMS-9000T family of LTO-8 tape storage systems deliver a high performance tape storage in rugged chassis. This unique storage system delivers tape storage and disk storage in a single 1.1U chassis.

RS210 - The versatile NexServ RS210 “Bunker Class” Rugged 2U server delivers high performance in a broad range of military and commercial applications.
