Systel Falcon Multi-Sensor Mission Computer

Systel, a developer of rugged computing solutions, has announced the unveiling of Falcon, the company’s new multi-mission embedded system, at the Navy League Sea Air Space Maritime Exposition in National Harbor, Maryland.

Falcon is a fully rugged, high-performance, multi-mission ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance) and ISTAR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition & Reconnaissance) solution. Redefining high density computing, Falcon features computer, video, network, and storage facilities in an extreme small form factor embedded package, providing a single mission processing and network backbone for advanced unmanned systems such as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).

“Falcon exceeds the technology challenges and performance specifications demanded by modern Defense programs and platforms,” says Aneesh Kothari, vice president of marketing for Systel. “It provides an unmatched processing combination of high performance CPU and GPU, ultra-efficient multi-sensor capture and encode, I/O and board scalability, and secure storage – all in a SWaP optimized, single Line Replaceable Unit.”

Falcon provides ultra-dense embedded capability and a force-multiplier capacity in a single system. It is fully sealed and certified to multiple environmental standards for unlimited platform integration and deployment capability. Falcon is optimized for major mission management software and delivers the ability to ingest and encode multiple sensor inputs in a compliant format for distribution, consumption, and storage.
