Sparrow-Strike

MIL-SPEC rugged USFF edge processor integrating the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX or SMARC x86 CPU. Next-gen edge AI compute solution. The world's first MIL-SPEC rugged Jetson Orin NX edge AI compute solution on the market.

Systel's Sparrow Strike

Sparrow-Strike

Sparrow-Strike is an ultra-small-form-factor (USFF) MIL-SPEC rugged edge compute solution. Designed using a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) with a modular chassis and architecture design, integrating either the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX edge AI system on module (SOM) or an Intel x86-based processor, Sparrow-Strike provides the performance and flexibility demanded by emerging autonomous and uncrewed missions, in an ultra-compact and lightweight form factor. Sparrow-Strike is engineered to withstand austere environments and is SWaP-optimized for integration and deployment in highly space-constrained platforms.

Edge AI Compute

Can integrate the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX (8GB or 16GB), delivering up to 100 TOPS of AI performance for next-gen autonomous and uncrewed mission-critical applications.

Ultra-Small-Form-Factor (USFF)

Ultra-compact and lightweight, SWaP-optimized for integration and deployment in highly space-constrained vehicles.

Modular and Configurable

Orin NX and SMARC x86-based architecture/processor options. Robust IO and configuration options, including multiple USB 3.0, GbE, serial, display, video capture, GPS, GPIO.

MIL-SPEC Rugged

Engineered for austere environments. -40C to +55C operating temp, passive cooled. Fully sealed. MIL-STD-810H, MIL-STD-461G, MIL-STD-1275E/704F.
