One of the divisions of Thales that ASL work with is Thales Geosolutions who provide GPS maritime tracking solutions.

The project was for a large number of rack mount servers and although a 1U server would have been preferable the application required the machines to accommodate up to 3 legacy PCI and ISA cards.

ASL provided a 2U machine with Intel Pentium 4 processor with passive backplane that had both ISA and PCI slots and would therefore accept a combination of the Thales legacy I/O cards.

Version control and material/change control were also critical. A large amount of resource and time were spent validating the unit for their software. ASL spent a lot of time working closely with the customer to make sure that the unit and the build guide matched their requirements. ASL also installed all third party (free issue) cards and software.

Once the unit was fully tested and signed off, ASL took the master hard drive as the hardware image for the rest of their system. ASL did not use image software but invested in a HDD hardware BIT/Verify copier.
