Vehicle and Force Protection

Fully rugged mission computers for vehicle and force protection mission-critical applications

Protecting Those Who Protect Us

Systel supports vehicle and force protection mission-critical applications in austere environments through best-in-class rugged server and embedded computing solutions. Our rugged mission computers deliver unmatched capabilities through a proven combination of open architecture design, modularity, configurability, ruggedization, and SWaP-optimization.

With numerous form factors and near unlimited configuration options, we can support any mission profile and platform requirements set through MOSA-aligned open architecture COTS, MCOTS, and custom computing solutions. Some vehicle and force protection capabilities and applications we support:

  • Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS) 
  • Hostile Fire Detection and Localization (HFDL)
  • 360 Degree Situational Awareness (360SA)
  • Aided Target Recognition (AiTR)
  • Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (C-UAS)
  • Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR)
  • Remotely Operated Turrets
