Abaco Systems has released the MCS1000 and GVC2000, the first two mission ready systems to be based on the company’s innovative Lightning platform.



The rugged, small form factor MCS1000 mission ready mission- or display computer is ideal for I/O-rich applications where there are multiple target platforms or unique interfaces required on the computing solution. The system features the Intel Xeon E3 processor combined with a CoreAVI (or AMD) E8860 GPU, up to 16GB of DDR4 SDRAM and an XMC site. This system is ideal for avionics-rich mission compute and display applications such as sensor fusion/processing or as a data processing and display computer.



The rugged, small form factor GVC2000 high performance mission ready display computer is ideal for applications where top end data or display processing is required, with complex or unique I/O needs. It features the 12-core Intel Xeon D processor with 32GB of RAM, combining it with an NVIDIA Maxwell GPU capable of up to 1.2TeraFLOPS. It is an optimized solution for degraded visual environments, complex scene rendering, or driving multiple independent displays all requiring extensive GPU processing capabilities. Like the MCS1000, the GVC2000 can support up to 1TB of removable SSD storage.



Both systems leverage the uniquely modular, scalable Lightning platform which is designed to enable the rapid inclusion of customer-unique requirements, delivering individually created solutions – but at significantly less cost, and with substantially shorter leadtimes than is possible with in-house developed solutions.
