RES Aero XR5

Front I/O Airborne Servers

Designed to accelerate compute-intensive workloads at high altitudes, even during loss of cabin pressure, the completely fanless RES Aero XR5 servers packages up to two Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 processors with 22 cores and 2TB DDR4 ECC memory in light-weight form-factors that are fitted to onboard plenum enclosures. 

Reliability.png Proven Reliability

Manufactured in AS5553 compliant, AS9100D facilities, RES Aero servers have passed NAVAIR MIL-STD 461 for EMI and multiple military environmental specifications. Systems feature patented memory stabilization technology that prevents disconnect during system shock and vibration.
