The CRS-D5I-3VC1 is available without Non-Recurring Engineering costs to lower your program costs and its integrated rugged computing platform lowers your risk thus making it well suited for applications requiring rock-solid reliability such as civilian and military UAVs, manned commercial and military aircraft, helicopters, over- and underwater research vessels, ground vehicles, and locomotives.

Abaco Systems’ COTS-based CRS-D5I-3VC1 Application Ready computer system can be deployed in the field as soon as your application is ready, or use the CRS-D5I-3VC1 as a starting point for multiple application-specific configurations. The arduous task of integrating off the shelf boards has already been  done for you -- shortening your time to project completion. You have one point of contact for all issues and a single part number -- not a collection of parts. The CRS-D5I-3VC1 successfully integrates Abaco Systems boards, and modules, drawn from Abaco Systems’ wide selection of COTS boards, into open modular systems that are tested and qualified for rugged systems deployment.  The CRS-D5I-3VC1 contains a fully integrated set of boards and modules designed  to fulfill just about any video processing, display and control applications.
