Rugged NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Webinar Invitation for Military and Aerospace

Are you ready for AI and autonomic applications?

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is at the heart of the VPX3U-XAVIER-APU and is especially suited for applications that require AI inferencing, machine vision, GPGPU CUDA processing, and autonomous operation. To make this technology usable for aerospace and defense we first focused on temperature limits, and designed a solution for operation between -40C and +85C. Then we added our Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) which leverages a Xilinx® FPGA to provide capture and conversion of video data from one standard to another. This ensures a diverse choice of digital and analog I/O options for your sensor-hungry applications. And we've done all of this within the constraints of a 50 watt power envelope.

This is an industry first. A breakthrough. And our military and aerospace customers are excited, judging from the feedback we're getting from this webinar invitation.

Webinar
May 30, at 1:00 PM EST

Greg Maynard, our CTO, will be sharing our design decisions and the future outlook for this product in a 25-minute webinar about our new VPX3U-XAVIER-APU designed for rugged deployment in harsh environments that include military, aerospace, unmanned vehicles, search and rescue, and more.

Anonymous chat will be enabled for any questions you have on the webinar. And you're welcome to stay connected after the formal presentation is finished to drill down for more specifics.

 

 

The back story.

It all started at the NVIDIA GTC DC tradeshow in the fall of 2018. A few industry visionaries started asking if we'd ever do something with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier for military and aerospace deployment.

Initially, we dismissed the idea, for many reasons. After all, the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier printed circuit board itself is too large (at 86.7mm) for our traditional 3U VPX design approach. And then there was the matter of ruggedization, heat dissipation, finding real estate for adding an FPGA, and other engineering obstacles.

But the idea had planted itself.

At around the same time we happened to be soliciting AI project feedback from a few high profile customers and partners and we kept hearing about their success with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier in the lab. They too, it seemed, were intrigued by the prospect of deploying this platform.

That was the turning point. We had to do it. So we doubled-down on our focus and applied our engineering creativity, and endless iterations, to come up with a final layout. And many months later, we're pleased to say, that we're about to announce the VPX3U-XAVIER-APU to our military and aerospace customers and partners.

Thank you to the visionaries, partners, and engineers who influenced our decision to bring this product to market.

Why the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier?

There was no lack of fanfare when NVIDIA released the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier in December 2018.

For good reason.

For starters, NVIDIA claimed a 10x energy efficiency and more than 20x the performance of its predecessor, the Jetson TX2. That was enough to catch people's attention.

Then there was the AI performance (32 TeraOPS of deep learning inference computing using the GPU and Deep Learning Accelerator engines) and the application possibilities for the visual odometry, sensor fusion, localization and mapping, obstacle detection, and path planning algorithms.

In WOLF's opinion, the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is a game changer. And now, with the WOLF VPX3U-XAVIER-APU module, you gain access to this platform for rugged deployment with extra I/O, operating temperatures between -40C and +85C, and lean power consumption of 30-50W.
