Low latency, high-performance solutions are fielded by One Stop Systems (OSS) using the best commercial technologies available. As the mobility of the military, in an ever-increasingly complex battlefield, emerges the need to bring advanced systems to the Edge is clear. The spectacle of advanced weapons stalling a superior fighting force, as evident in Ukraine, is driving the need to build a cohesive, autonomous, and semi-autonomous strategy for the United States. Moving commercial solutions and hardware to the edge has become imperative. This shift for tactical and combat vehicles is based on a compendium of communications and mixed signals to create an asymmetrical Artificial Intelligence (AI) solution that outstrips the enemy's ability to react.
PCIe Gen 5 is a key technology for driving transportable or edge AI systems to higher performance, especially those with demanding space, environmental or cooling needs. But AI program managers should evaluate their technology suppliers’ Gen 5 implementations to ensure they fully realize the technology’s benefits.
