Short Take: SGI wins Air Force contract

SGI has won a $120 million contract to provide 18 Origin 3000 servers and 27 Onyx 3000 graphics visualization systems to Aerojet to run the U.S. Air Force's next-generation missile warning system. The computers will be located at ground stations that receive signals from Air Force satellites, which detect heat from missile launches. The visualization systems will be "ruggedized" so they can be used by mobile ground stations and transported on planes.
