Systel Inc. in Sugar Land, Texas, is introducing the Raven-Strike rugged mission computer for land, sea, and airborne aerospace applications like vetronics, avionics, and shipboard electronics.

The sealed rugged mission computer is built for modern fighting vehicles. Packaged to keep size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) to a minimum, Raven-Strike integrates computer and networking throughput and enables deep learning and artificial intelligence capability.

System features include dual Intel Xeon scalable processors for high-performance edge computing, NVIDIA general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPGPU) to enable autonomous capabilities, HD video capture and encode, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber for high-bandwidth low-latency networking and communications.

The Raven-Strike mission computer acts as a single point for all sensor ingest and data fusion, says Aneesh Kothari, vice president of marketing for Systel. Features also include M.2 high-speed solid-state drive; PCI Express/104 expansion; advanced thermal management; 24-volt DC power; and meets MIL-STD-810G for shock and vibration.
