"Strike" MIL-SPEC Rugged Embedded Computers

MIL-SPEC rugged embedded computers purpose-built for edge compute, edge AI, video processing and other data-intensive processing and analytics mission-critical applications in austere environments. Engineered to survive the harshest environments while reliably supporting next-gen mission capabilities.

Strike First, Strike Fast!

Soaring above the limitations of geography and environment, birds of prey possess keen eyesight, incredible speed and agility, power, and precision. They are highly adaptive to changing circumstances and are laser-focused on the task at hand.

Systel’s Strike product family of MIL-SPEC rugged embedded compute solutions is purpose-built for intensive video processing and data analytics for mission-critical applications in austere environments at the extreme tactical edge. With a hyperconvergence design approach, Strike MIL-SPEC rugged embedded computers fuse sensor capture/encode, processing, networking, storage, controls, and distribution into a single powerful and highly configurable Line Replaceable Unit (LRU), significantly minimizing SWaP while maximizing capability and deployability.

Strike systems are fully rugged with advanced thermal management for deployment and integration in any environment. The Strike product family is engineered with a standards-based approach utilizing open architectures and COTS technologies, and using a Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA). Strike systems feature:

  • High-performance computing (HPC) including CPU/GPU parallel processing
  • Modular, multi-architecture designs
  • AI at the edge and Compute at the edge capabilities
  • Multi-sensor and multi-format video capture and encode options
  • Dense IO and robust modular expansion/upgrade capabilities
  • High-capacity and secure storage
  • MIL-SPEC rugged with extended operating temperature ranges and fully sealed. Typical profiles include MIL-STD-810H, MIL-STD-461G, MIL-STD-1275E, MIL-STD-704F.
  • Open standards architecture designed using a modular open systems approach (MOSA)
