Modern avionics and military platforms require field-ready, scalable, and high performance mission computers to run compute-intensive, safety-critical workloads. However, these platforms need to function in space-constrained environments, in which it is essential to minimize the size, weight, and power (SWaP) of the systems. This goal can be effectively achieved with mission computers equipped with the latest processors embedded within rugged, compact, and power-efficient form factors. Edge computing systems used in missions must be easily customized with all the features and functionality needed to enable rapid decision-making, protect critical data and lead to successful engagements. Seamless integration of a variety of different components and architectures is required, which can be difficult to achieve.
