Italy’s Navy to take ZX rugged servers for use on the FREMM multi-mission frigate
Z Microsystems has partnered exclusively with Eurolink Systems, an Italy-based defence systems integrator, to provide its ZX series of rugged computer servers to the Italian navy. Eurolink Systems will supply the ZX1, ZX2 and ZX3 servers to a global communication supplier for integration into on-board computing systems used in the FREMM European multi-mission frigate program.

The FREMM European multi-mission frigate is a joint program between France and Italy that originally included plans for a total of 27 FREMM frigates to be built: 17 for the French Navy and ten for the Italian Navy. The frigate is a ship designed to operate in anti-air, anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare, with the capability of carrying out deep strikes against land targets.

“We are happy to be working with Z Microsystems to integrate their rugged servers for this very important program,” said Pietro Lapiana, CEO of Eurolink Systems. “Partnering with Z Microsystems allows us to deliver a complete turn-key offering of products, services and applications in the defence and aerospace markets in Europe.”

The new ZX 1-2-3 series are low profile, rack mountable, rugged servers from Z Microsystems. The ZX1 is 1.72 inches (1U) high, the ZX2 is 3.45 inches (2U) high and the ZX3 is 5.25 inches (3U). All are 20 inches deep. Each is compact and lightweight, saving rack space while delivering a flexible and high–performance solution for mission–ready applications.

“The European military is looking for less size and weight, more flexibility, and higher performance in computers and servers,” said Jack Wade, CEO of Z Microsystems. “Eurolink Systems has been a great partner for us to be able to penetrate this market and show that our servers are the best suited for these types of applications.”

The ZX 1-2-3 Series integrates the latest computing technology with a system architecture supporting any extended ATX form-factor motherboards with support for up to 3, 6 or 12 rugged hot–pluggable TP2 removable drives, a slim line DVD-RW dual layer, and an environmental control board to support proper thermal regulation.

The ZX 1-2-3 Series is designed and built for the harshest military environments. The chassis are designed to meet MIL-STD-810G requirements for shock, vibration, humidity, and high/low temperature. Please contact Z Micro sales department for a copy of the latest test reports. Enhanced military options such as EMI filtered power supplies with Mil-Circular connectors and locking security panel are also available. The ZX Series also complies with the European CE marking for safety and environmental standards.
