VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – March 6, 2018 – FoxGuard Solutions, Inc. (FoxGuard) recently partnered with Cape Henry Associates (CHA) in support of a $4.2 million task order related to design, development, and delivery of the Carrier-Advanced Reconfigurable Training System (C-ARTS). C-ARTS is a mobile, scalable, reconfigurable High Velocity Learning Environment (HVLE) powered by CHA’s Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Lighthouse technology product.
FoxGuard worked with CHA to design and deliver purpose-built, liquid-cooled, high-end computer systems for the C-ARTS build. To facilitate technology-based training inclusive of virtual reality and intensive simulations, CHA needed high-end computers with high-end graphics processing units (GPUs) in a small form factor. The heat produced by these high-end components in a small form factor required a liquid-cooled solution for optimal computer performance. FoxGuard worked hand-in-hand with Cape Henry’s engineers to identify the chassis, cooling requirements, long life cycle components, and reliable parts that would meet the requirements for this project. “By working with FoxGuard, CHA was able to access FoxGuard’s engineering team to obtain expert recommendations and select the optimal systems builds that would be used to support our training and simulation solutions for our High Velocity Learning Environment,” said CHA Chief Executive Officer John Jackson.
“FoxGuard Solutions has been overcoming thermal challenges to meet client needs in the energy industry for some time, and partnering with CHA in support of a Department of Defense training and simulation project opens an exciting new avenue for us,” said Nasri Salamoun, FoxGuard’s director of engineering.
This C-ARTS project is being built in support of the U.S. Navy’s Ready, Relevant Learning (RRL) initiative as part of Sailor 2025. C-ARTS is set for final delivery in late spring of 2018.
