  • Application

    The Golden-Eyes is designed to provide the ultimate multi-domain, rugged computer for defense and UAV applications. The Golden-Eyes is the next generation of the Golden-Eye III, which is widely deployed in Army WIN-T vehicles, robots for hazardous applications where the computer is exposed to harsh environments, and UAVs, where power, weight, and size are the main considerations. The SB1002-MD is ideal for outdoor applications where it may be fully exposed to rain, sun, dirt, and radiation. This system may be ordered from the factory with operating systems such as Windows®, Linux® or VMware® pre-installed. The SB1002-MD is fully compliant to MIL-STD 810G, MIL-STD 1275D, MIL-S-901D, DO-160D, MIL-STD 461E and IP66.
  • General Description

    The SB1002-MD “Golden-Eyes” is a fifth-generation, ultra-rugged, small, lightweight computer system. It is designed to allow two different domains (red and black) to operate independently in the same system, while providing the highest level of workstation performance possible in a fully ruggedized, conduction-cooled, sealed system, operating up to -40°C to +85°C (-20°C to +75°C standard). The Golden-Eyes system is targeted for applications where classified and unclassified software need to operate simultaneously with an NSA-approved architecture for multi-domain applications in a small, ultra-rugged enclosure with the highest possible performance, per dollar and per watt, while utilizing rugged interconnects to provide a fully sealed system and sharing only DC power. 
    The Golden-Eyes supports the latest, most power-efficient Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell processor with Hyper-Threading for a total of 8 logical cores, each operating at up to 2.4GHz and the ability to TurboBoost up to 3.4GHz. To harvest this incredible CPU performance, the CPU is coupled with up to 32GB of RAM organized in two banks that support Error Correcting Code (ECC). The ECC RAM provides 2-bit error detection and 1-bit error correction and supports up to 1600 Mega Transfers per Second (MTS) between CPU and memory. 
    The I/O subsystem for the Golden-Eyes is designed to support a wide array of standard and custom I/O functions. Each Domain (Red and Black) of the SB1002-MD configuration supports seven Gigabit Ethernet ports with TCP/IP Offloading Engine (TOE), six USB 2.0 ports, a removable sealed nDrive™ SSD up to 1TB, eight buffered digital I/O lines, three video ports, two COM ports with RS-232/422/485 options, and full HD-Audio headset jack and a 1-watt audio amplifier to drive an 8-ohm speaker directly. Additional I/O functions included on both Domains include up to 1TB of onboard SSD with write-protect and secure-erase as a Boot device, two SAM™ sites for custom I/O such as Wi-Fi/Bluetooth, GPS, Quad Video capture, CANbus, MIL-STD-1553, FireWire, and many more.
    The Golden-Eyes supports the most secure storage subsystem possible. The red and black domains each support mSATA as a boot device as well as a dual redundant BIOS flash with hardware write-protect and tamper-proof functions. In addition, the red and black domains support a sealed removable nDrive™ SSD drive with tamper-proof security functions. A hardware tamper-proof circuit is also provided which enables the security functions of the system to prevent access to any of the stored data on the system. These data security functions, along with the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and the Trusted Execution Technology (TXT), make the Golden-Eyes the most secure multi-domain system on the market.
  • Technology Used

    The Golden-Eyes utilizes the Intel® Core™ i7 Haswell CPU, which is the most powerful, efficient processor from Intel® with advanced thermal management and graphics. The Haswell Quad Core™ i7 processor supports Hyper-Threading for a total of eight logical cores and supports 6MB of L2 cache shared among the cores. Haswell supports 32GB of DDR3 with ECC and 1600 mega-transfers per second (MTS) between the CPU and RAM. The other major improvement of the Haswell over the Ivy Bridge Core™ i7 is the graphics performance. The Haswell processor provides three independent video outputs and better-than-40% improvement in 3D acceleration. Haswell is also coupled with Lynx Point™ and is a fourth-generation Core™ i7 with a fully integrated memory controller for the best memory performance possible. This CPU is considered the workhorse of the workstation market with many added power saving features and peak performance with controlled thermals, as well as security functions such as Intel’s second-generation Virtualization Technology VT-x and Trusted Execution Technology (TXT). The Haswell platform also supports PCIExpress Gen3, USB 3.0 and SATA 3 for the highest performance possible on a workstation platform.
  • Cooling

    The Golden-Eyes system is equipped with GMS' patent pending RuggedCool™ technology, which is the most unique cooling system in the industry and is the only system that operates up to -40°C to +85°C at full load without throttling the CPU! This cooling approach provides the lowest thermal resistance to the case while providing the highest shock specifications known in the industry. The SB1002-MD is a fan-less system for reliable operation and can be mounted directly to a metal surface or used as a stand-alone system.
