All of our products share three characteristics.

Rugged

We have long been a pioneer in creating rugged systems capable of withstanding extremes of shock, vibration, temperature and moisture/contaminant ingress. No other company has more extensive expertise or experience in designing solutions for the most challenging environments.

Open standards

Abaco Systems has offered solutions based on industry standards and technologies for decades – often adapted from those found in the world’s largest commercial data centers. They deliver to our customers uncompromising price/performance, flexibility, interoperability and cost of ownership.

Minimal SWaP

Our customers continually need to do more with less: more processing capability, but in smaller, lighter weight packages that consume less power (SWaP). We’ve responded with innovative technologies and solutions that can deliver GigaFLOPS of performance in the most constrained environments.

Service & Support

We bring 30+ years of experience to the flexible, responsive support of our customers, backed by robust, repeatable processes. Through every day of your program, our focus is on ensuring your success.

Initial Engagement

Our team of highly experienced application engineers (AEs) are experts in their field, and work with you to identify the optimum solution. AEs, and our customers, in turn are supported by our two centers of excellence – for high performance embedded computing (HPEC) and networking.

Deployment

Through the life a program, regular technology refreshes/system upgrades are commonplace. In response, we have always featured designed-in ease of upgrade, providing a highly cost-effective path over the multi-year lifetime of the typical program, allowing you to add performance and functionality - at minimum cost.

Maturity

Rapidly changing technology means that, at some point, products will become end of life. To help you mitigate the impact of obsolescence, our industry-leading Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) program provides flexible strategies to ensure that products are available as long as you need them.
