We help enable mission success in all battlespace domains: air, land, maritime, space, cyberspace, and the electromagnetic spectrum. We support Joint All Domain Operations (JADO) and Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) with rugged tactical computing solutions at the edge.

Rugged Compute for Uncompromising Missions Across All Domains

From the desert to the deep, whether by air, land, or sea, we help enable mission success across all domains. The future of warfare is based in multi-domain operations, connecting every sensor to every shooter across all services and all domains. The backbone of this Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) concept of operations (CONOPS) is edge computing built to survive and reliably function in congested and contested operations in austere environments.

For over 30 years, Systel has provided rugged computing solutions and technologies to support the warfighter in any domain. Our MOSA-aligned MIL-STD and DO-160 rugged computers are based on proven COTS technologies and are purpose-built for your mission requirements and operational parameters.

A Primer on Video Encoding

Whenever you watch a video – whether it is streamed over a network or downloaded onto a device – the chances are that the original files have been compressed and the file size shrunk to make it more manageable for the bandwidth and storage available to you at the time. This compression is known as video encoding and it is a hugely important process to ensure that video data can be stored and transmitted efficiently, even over constrained networks where bandwidth is limited.

Systel Joins Maritime Sustainment Technology and Innovation Consortium as 300th Member

MSTIC, established by The Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division (NSWCPD), is pleased to announce the achievement of its milestone 300th member, Systel, Inc. located out of Sugar Land, Texas.
