Xtreme™ Rugged Products

SKY Computers provides one-stop-shopping for Defense contractors and integrators who need the complete spectrum of benign to harsh-packaged multiprocessing systems for their high performance needs. SKY's commercial grade SKYbolt 6U VME products have been ruggedized to two levels in the Xtreme product family. No other high performance embedded systems vendor provides this level of lifecycle support under one roof.

SKY has employed advanced field-tested technologies in the new Thunderbolt family, making them deployment ready for harsh environments.

The chart shows the environmental specifications for the Xtreme family of products:
