Myriad sensors and electro-optical systems are capturing an ever-increasing amount of data, including full-motion video and high-quality imagery, in a wide variety of military and civil applications, ranging from homeland security and law enforcement to military intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. Exponential growth in the amount of data captured daily is driving the requirement for robust, reliable, and capable computing infrastructures.
Engineers are outfitting vehicles in the air, on the ground, and at sea with high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) technologies to fulfill the mounting need to process data—translating it into actionable intelligence—at the edge of the battlefield , both on demand and on site, rather than offloading it to intelligence experts far from the field.
