Cubic has begun to ship updated networking, compute and power systems designed to function at the tactical edge even in austere environments.

The company said Thursday it started the delivery of new M3X modules to customers and is scheduled to roll out additional cross-domain modules, radio gateways and servers later this year.

M3X is built with Intel‘s Xeon processor technology and Cisco‘s power management, networking and storage systems.

“Guided by continuous customer collaboration, we have made some key enhancements to compute performance and power management in the product line that we believe will better meet and exceed the current and future requirements of an emerging internet of battlefield things,” said Mike Barthlow, senior vice president and general manager of rugged internet of things at Cubic.

The modules are designed to facilitate interconnectivity through a modular rail platform and help tactical users address electromagnetic interference requirements.

Cubic added the product’s case has an IP67 water and dust resistance rating.
