DEFENSE

OSS is accelerating mission-critical AI defense and intelligence applications at the rugged edge.

Artificial Intelligence is rapidly becoming a core element of defense systems across all mission environments including on land, in the air and on the sea. These applications require the highest possible performance deployable in the harshest conditions. AI will be critical in coping with the huge data flows being acquired from sophisticated sensor networks and converting this to actionable intelligence in real time. The latency involved in relying on remote datacenters is unacceptable in these situations. These systems are located in harsh environments but require the highest levels of reliability and security along with the latest in CPU, GPU, data ingest and storage technology. The military theater of tomorrow is one that will demand “AI transportability” at every node.

Land Solutions

OSS brings the compute power of HPC to the unique environmental requirements of military AI applications.

Land-based AI Transportable applications range from tactical portable command centers to hybrid autonomous tanks to mobile radar platforms.  Portable military command centers use AI “in theater” to quickly process a flood of tactical information to create a comprehensive and intelligible picture of the battle area. Army tank crews detect and respond to incoming threats far faster than ever before with AI systems that use advanced sensors and machine learning algorithms. Truck-mounted mobile radar systems provide ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) with advancing AI technology to process the increasing size and precision of data collected.

Sea Solutions

AI capabilities are embedded in many shipboard defensive and offensive mission systems designed for rapid awareness and reaction to threats.

Sea-based AI transportable applications include advance threat detection systems, autonomous or semi-autonomous surface ships and undersea vessels, and automated maintenance alert systems. AI capabilities are embedded in many shipboard defensive and offensive mission systems designed for rapid awareness and reaction to threats. Unmanned surface ships have been demonstrated to travel thousands of miles without any crew paving the way to ocean patrols for months at much reduced costs. Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) using AI technology are deployed in anti-mine missions. AI technology is also used to automate maintenance, identifying weak systems before they break down at sea.

Air Solutions

Datacenters in the sky need all the capabilities of land-based datacenters, but must function in harsh vibration and thermal environments while meeting strict weight, size and power constraints of the aircraft. 

Airborne AI transportable applications range from data center in sky deployments on intelligence gathering aircraft, to pilot assist systems for advance weapon systems and communication in theater, to deployment and control of swarms of unmanned aircraft. Datacenters in the sky need all the capabilities of land-based datacenters, but must function in harsh vibration and thermal environments while meeting strict weight, size and power constraints of the aircraft. The DOD is testing AI-driven capabilities to enable cooperative behavior or swarming where a autonomous aircraft team with each other, as well as with manned submarines, surface vessels, and aircraft to carry out their defensive and offensive missions.
