SAN DIEGO, Nov. 28 (UPI) -- MEADS International has selected a U.S. provider of computer systems to supply servers for the mobile air defense system being designed to replace the Patriot.

California's Z Microsystems said it will supply its ZX series of rugged servers and workstations, specifically modified to meet requirements of the Medium Extended Air Defense System. Each unit is compact and lightweight, features enhanced military options and has been thoroughly tested.

"Z Microsystems' engineers are consummate professionals in the design of systems that mitigate the risk, cost and failure caused by harsh environmental conditions," said Bob Kopas, vice president of Military Programs at Z Microsystems.

"We welcome this type of opportunity to provide a COTS product that meets precise environmental and operational requirements in a realistic timeframe."

MEADS is being developed by MBDA in Germany and Italy and Lockheed Martin in the United States.
