MPD Fully Functioning During the Covid-19 Emergency

We just thought we’d let all of you know that it is business as usual at Octagon Communications and MPD. All necessary precautions have been taken, and, as several of our staffers already work remotely, the office is open for business until we are told otherwise.

The March issues of MPD and MMD will arrive on schedule, and of course our website and the digital edition will continue to be available.

Feel free to contact any of us with questions or concerns!

We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy.

Performance Mission Computing Systems

The company has expanded its line of Cisco-based mission computing systems used in rugged and harsh environments. Based on modular building blocks, the new ComSys-536x family utilizes the company’s extensive packaging expertise to offer many performance and expansion configurations that meet specific computing-at-the-edge requirements. The Type 6 COM Express-based systems can be configured using a choice of Intel CPUs, from Atom to Xeon, to provide optimum power-to-performance in a compact, SWaP-optimized platform. Other ways the ComSys-536x systems are easily adapted to a user’s requirements are via expandable high-capacity SATA storage, upgradeable as mission requirements change. A host of I/O configurations spans from Gigabit Ethernet, CANbus, and WiFi to Serial I/O, ARINC-429, and MIL-STD-1553, providing fast reconfiguration as applications evolve.
