CSP Inc. ("CSPI") was incorporated in 1968 and is based in Billerica, Massachusetts, just off Route 128 in the Boston computer corridor. To meet the diverse requirements of our industrial, commercial, and defense customers worldwide, CSPI and its subsidiaries develop and market IT integration solutions and high-performance cluster computer systems
The Systems segment consists primarily of CSPI’s MultiComputer Division (the "MultiComputer Division") which designs and manufactures commercial high-performance computer signal processing systems for a variety of complex real time applications in defense and commercial markets. MultiComputer Division products are based on an architectural solution that is open, standards-based, vendor independent, easily integrated with third-party products and compatible with future product offerings. The MultiComputer Division’s products are known as multicomputers or cluster computers, which use multiple microprocessors linked together with a high performance network to achieve very high performance processing capabilities. Our MultiComputer systems utilize “blades” (self-contained, high-density computer boards) to achieve a high level of compute processing per-cubic-foot-per-watt. The blades and other components that make up the system can be housed in commercially available air-cooled chassis or in ruggedized chassis, designed to withstand physically demanding environments. In addition, CSPI’s MultiComputer products are designed to operate in environments that require low power, or have limited cooling and/or space available. These systems have traditionally been utilized for sonar and radar digital signal processing (“DSP”), image recognition and simulation, image processing for medical and machine vision, and seismic data acquisition applications. The MultiComputer Division sells all its products through its own direct sales force in the United States and via distributors and authorized resellers in Europe and the Asia-Pacificregion.
The Service and System Integration Segment consists of the computer maintenance and integration services and third-party computer hardware and software value added reseller ("VAR") businesses of our Modcomp subsidiary ("Modcomp"). Modcomp is a wholly owned subsidiary of CSPI, which operates in the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom ("the UK"). Modcomp markets and sells its products through its own direct sales force. Modcomp provides solutions and services for complex IT environments including storage and servers, unified communications solutions, IT security solutions and consulting services. Modcomp also provides managed IT services through its state of the art network operations center ("NOC").
