Northrop Grumman required a rugged computer system to build a Digital Voice Recorder for use aboard Navy ships. The system records virtually all audio traffic on the ship including radio traffic, PA, and bridge conversations. The rack system is designed to meet Mil Spec 901D, Grade A.
Included is a 19-slot PCI Express backplane and dual Xeon System Host Board, four hot swap Ultra 320 SCSI drives, dual DVD/RW drives, and redundant power. The front mounted Touch Entry Device provides system monitoring and control.
