MCP Computer Products (MCP) announced today that it has received a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award from the U.S. Air Force (USAF AFWERX). Primary objective of this award is to validate the MCP/DDC solution for the world’s first Mobile Ruggedized Data Center. Our MCP/DDC team has successfully scaled down a full data center into a ruggedized mobile data cabinet. Our solution provides a completely sealed, clean, and cooled environment with fire suppression. This allows quick deployment of a temporary data center, into the field where needed. These data centers can also be quickly modified to provide EMI/RF shielding and a hardened bullet proof exterior. These versions exceed the USAF test sites for drone exercises where mobility and security are required.
“This is an exciting opportunity for MCP to work directly with the Air Force,” stated Raj Ghai, President at MCP. “We at MCP are eager to demonstrate the capability that enables rapid technology deployment, enhancing mission flexibility. This solution is ideally suited for both our government and commercial customers.”
