Graphic: Trenton Systems is continuing its long-term support for the Aegis Combat System with a recent $500,000 provision.
Trenton Systems, a manufacturer of cybersecure, rugged, made-in-USA computing solutions, has supplied Lockheed Martin with $500,000 worth of high-performance computers for the Aegis Combat System.
The deal represents Trenton’s latest provision for the famous naval weapons system, which, over the years, has generated millions in revenue for the rapidly growing Georgia-based computer company.
Kimberly Carter-Clark, Trenton's strategic account manager assigned to the deal, said the provision includes multiple Trenton PCIe backplanes and single-board computers (SBCs).
"They’re installed in custom chassis aboard Aegis-equipped navy ships," Carter-Clark said. "This sort of deployment involves extensive shipboard testing and hardware design considerations to ensure adequate ruggedization and proper form, fit, and function. Our talented team of hardware, firmware, and software engineers have worked tirelessly to make these systems a reality for Lockheed.”
Michael Bowling, CEO of Trenton Systems, commended Trenton’s sales and engineering teams for their diligence in devising the solution. He said the deal is one of many in a long and rich history of trust and collaboration with Lockheed Martin and naval forces around the world.
"When we as a company contribute to a combat system that protects troops, civilians, and military assets on a global scale, I'm reminded why we at Trenton do what we do: because our work makes a difference in the livelihood, safety, security, and freedom of people everywhere," Bowling said. "We couldn't be more excited about our support for Aegis, and we’re truly excited now more than ever about our continuously expanding relationship with Lockheed Martin."
