Kite-Strike I

Fully Rugged NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Embedded Edge Computer. SWaP-Optimized Edge AI and Computer Vision Mission Computer

Kite-Strike I

Kite-Strike I is a fully rugged, single line replaceable unit (LRU) embedded edge computer purpose-built for deployment in harsh environments for demanding AI and ML sensor ingest and data processing applications. Integrating the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier system-on-module (SOM), Kite-Strike I is engineered and manufactured for extreme SWaP-optimization and incredible compute performance. The Jetson AGX Xavier features 32 TeraOPS (TOPS) of peak compute and 750 Gbps of high-speed IO, providing the performance to handle visual odometry, sensor fusion, localization and mapping, obstacle detection, and path planning algorithms critical to next-generation autonomous systems. Kite-Strike I is engineered with a standards-based approach utilizing open architectures and COTS technologies, and is aligned to OSA/MOSA mandates.
