AI Transportables in the Military Theater of Tomorrow

By Dave Raun, CEO of One Stop Systems

Independent of the administration in office, one of the top priorities for today and the next couple of decades is the deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI) throughout all the branches of the armed forces. Many of these applications are AI Transportables requiring performance without compromise in harsh and challenging environments. This post will cover some of the driving factors, paint the picture of tomorrow and discuss how we will continue to protect our freedom with military superiority.

Although Pentagon budgets may fluctuate, impacting whether the United States builds another $10 billion aircraft carrier, the priority will remain focused on leveraging AI technology. According to a recent report, the Department of Defense is juggling more than 685 artificial intelligence projects. AI combined with autonomous capability will significantly increase the defensive and offensive effectiveness of every domain whether it is in the air, on land, at sea or in space while also putting fewer human lives at risk. Think of a tank: does it make more sense to double the number of $6 million tanks, or add $1 million of AI capabilities to a single tank and double or triple its effectiveness? Even multiple current generation tanks on the battlefield of tomorrow will stand no chance when faced with one smarter, quicker AI tank. Although these AI tanks will likely have a human on board to fire any offensive weapon, AI will take care of identifying threats, aiming, driving, and defensive maneuvers increasing the speed and efficiency.

AI Digital BattlegroundThis digital battleground will allow ships, jets, and vehicles to access information securely and make instant informed decisions functioning independently yet in conjunction with the soldier on the ground. These systems will absorb and process unimaginable amounts of data and most importantly act when all the time you have is now. It will also lead to highly resilient systems, unprecedented agility in evolving capabilities against new threats, and breakthrough technology applications.

Unlike the environmentally controlled datacenter, these use cases will require the highest level of compute performance and storage capabilities to operate and survive in the harshest environments on the planet. To maintain the superiority the country has enjoyed for a century, there will be no room for compromises on performance. Suppliers of even last year’s technology will struggle serving this fast-growing need. Therefore, One Stop Systems is uniquely qualified and focused on becoming the market leader in the AI Transportable space. OSS' compute and storage systems deliver performance without compromise with the latest technology throughout the military theater, whether it is on the land, in the air, or out at sea.

Autonomous Vehicles Industry
Meeting the Data Storage Demands of the Autonomous Vehicles Industry

September 20, 2022

As the forefront of the development of artificial intelligence and a key application within One Stop Systems’ “AI Transportable” industry, autonomous vehicles present an opportunity for innovation in designing ruggedized servers and high-capacity storage products. While none of the vehicles on the road today are truly self-driving, progress is being steadily made towards systems that can successfully predict and navigate everyday traffic. Autonomous cars and trucks being currently deployed are capable of driving with limited operator input, it is predicted that fully autonomous vehicles will be widely available by the end of the decade. One Stop Systems has had the unique opportunity to support this progression by developing products catered to the extensive storage needs of the autonomous vehicles industry.

OOB System Management
Out-of-Band Management for Compute Systems on the Edge

September 13, 2022

Out-of-Band (OOB) system management is a staple of the modern datacenter. The tools used by administrators have matured over the last 20 years to provide a variety of mission critical features for managing, monitoring, configuring, and updating computer systems independent of the host system’s resources. Intel led the way in the early days by defining a set of interface specifications for basic system management in 1998 called the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). Over the next 20 years, 200+ computer vendors joined support for the IPMI specifications. While IPMI has served us well over the years, it is showing its age with a myriad of security concerns and use of legacy standards that make managing modern hybrid infrastructures difficult and complicated.

When will automobiles be fully autonomous on the road?
When will Automobiles be Fully Autonomous on the Road?

August 30, 2022

The idea and dream of a fully autonomous car is almost 100 years old. It was first formulated in the US magazine Scientific American. The reason for this was presumably the "American Wonder", a remote-controlled car that drove through Manhattan in 1925. After almost a century, it seems that the automotive industry is on the verge of reaching its goal of having driverless and fully autonomous vehicles participate in everyday traffic.  But when will it finally come? To answer this question, we need to examine the reasons why vehicles are not yet fully autonomous.
