Crystal Group, Inc., a trusted designer and manufacturer of rugged high-performance edge compute solutions, sponsored the commissioning ceremony for the USS Hyman G. Rickover, the United States’ newest fast-attack, nuclear-powered submarine.
“Ensuring the safety of our warfighters and completion of the mission is what constantly drives our quality because we know that lives depend upon our equipment.”
The USS Rickover is the 22nd Virginia-class submarine commissioned by the U.S. Navy and is the second submarine honoring U.S. Navy Adm. Hyman G. Rickover who has been titled as the “Father of the Nuclear Navy.”
This submarine continues the legacy and dominance of undersea warfare established by the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered submarine program nearly seven decades ago.
“As a reactor operation and Naval Reactor engineer, I saw firsthand the legacy of technical competence and operational excellence created by Adm. Rickover,” said Chad Hutchinson, VP of Engineering at Crystal Group. “That legacy lives on in this new Virginia-class submarine that bears his name.”
Crystal Group supports all Virgina-class submarines with best-in-class custom rugged computing hardware designed specifically for the requirements of the U.S. Navy. The company is also proud to support this branch of the U.S. Armed Forces by providing over 20,000 Crystal Group servers, most of which are still deployed today.
Protecting the warfighter in war and peacetime is Crystal Group’s mission and the USS Hyman G. Rickover enables an even more advanced competitive advantage for the U.S. Navy.
“As a 28-year Navy veteran, I take a lot of pride in how Crystal Group supports the U.S. Armed Forces. That pride of workmanship extends to everyone at Crystal Group because we know that we build equipment that our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines depend upon,” said Greg Johnson, program manager at Crystal Group. “Ensuring the safety of our warfighters and completion of the mission is what constantly drives our quality because we know that lives depend upon our equipment.”
