WOLF Advanced Technology designs and manufactures rugged 6U VPX, 3U VPX, XMC, MXM/MXC and other small form factor modules for video capture, process, encode, display and AI inference. WOLF solutions are designed to operate in harsh aerospace and defense environments without sacrificing any of the processing power available from the latest generation of NVIDIA, AMD and Xilinx high-speed GPUs, APUs and FPGAs. WOLF’s high-performance modules are also ideal for field deployments requiring GPGPU parallel processing and deep learning inference.
WOLF products include COTS, MCOTS and custom designs.
The following two-minute video provides some context for how WOLF products are used by the military and aerospace industries today.
