Sensor Processing for Land, Air and Sea Systems

Our Advanced Modular Open Systems Approach to Building Sensor Processing Systems Delivers Greater Capability and Interoperability

We leverage the best commercially developed technology for performance, scalability, and interoperability. Our heterogeneous modular open system approach (MOSA) system building blocks and systems are ruggedly packaged and efficiently cooled for reliability and feature the latest processing technology from domain leaders such as Intel, Xilinx, and NVIDIA. 


Sensor Processing Solutions

Our sensor processing solutions use a MOSA, enabling applications to span form factors and platforms. We use standard interfaces and design architectures for interoperability and commonality, from VPX-based line replacement units (LRUs) and their constituent line replacement modules (LRMs) to custom and small form factor processing units.

What is High-Performance Embedded Computing?

High-performance embedded computing (HPEC) tracks the commercial high-performance computing (HPC) domain, benefiting from technological advances made in that market. As their technologies evolve, the HPEC market adapts by selecting the appropriate technologies that meet the essential elements of an HPEC system including maximizing floating-point and multi-processor performance, designed with open standards & SWaP, operating securely in harsh environments, and more.

More ISR Sensor Processing Capability in Smaller Systems

Steaming data from intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), electro-optical, and infrared (EO/IR) sensors require powerful processing nodes next to the sensor. These wideband processing and storage resources need to be highly ruggedized and extremely size, weight, and power-efficient. Our ISR processing building blocks include NVIDIA GPGPU data stream processing engines, Intel server-class DSPs with AI acceleration for cognitive information extraction, wideband, low-latency switches, dense storage, and the Xilinx FPGA technology. Learn how a leading prime subcontractor added capability to their ISR system with advanced processing while reducing their program cost, schedule, and system size.

Benefit From Best-in-Class Security, Ruggedization and Reliability

Don’t compromise on program requirements and security. To protect data security, we go beyond cybersecurity and encryption, applying rigorous supply chain processes that protect the integrity of all components on every module, subsystem, and system. Our ruggedization processes are based on decades of research and development and the highest industry standards including VPX (VITA 46/48 & 65), VITA 47, 48.8, and more.

Server-Class Radar and SAR Processing Systems Next to the Aperture

Radar and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) require powerful, highly ruggedized, and SWaP-efficient processing nodes at the sensor. Our radar processing building blocks include GPGPU data stream processing engines, Intel server-class DSPs, wideband PCIe switching, storage, and Xilinx FPGA technology. Learn how an engineering company needs data center-like processing to power its next-gen SAR system.

Upgrading EW Capabilities at the Speed of Technology

Our rugged, SWaP-optimized EW system building blocks include analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) to digitize analog signals, SBC, DSP engines with data center-class CPUs, parallel processing GPGPUs, and low-latency FPGAs for signal exploitation and cognitive processing and digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to drive EW countermeasures and effectors. Our modular open system approach to designing system building blocks enables our EW systems to be continually updated and refreshed. The same building blocks form the basis of other electromagnetic spectrum dominating technologies, including digital RF memory (DRFM), signal intelligence (SIGINT), and electronic countermeasure (ECM) systems. Learn how a helicopter manufacturer increased platform survivability by upgrading their EW suite with greater situational awareness and countermeasure responsiveness.
