OSS Receives $1.3 Million Order from US Army

To develop vehicle visualization systems using NVIDIA GPUs

One Stop Systems, Inc. has received a $1.3 million order from the US Army for the design, development and prototypes for a ruggedized compute visualization system using OSS PCIe Gen 4 switched fabric technology and NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin system-on-modules (SoMs).

It will design and build this system to support 360-degree visualization for US Army ground vehicles. There are more than 14,000 different Army vehicles, many with large blind spots, that may utilize this technology, including the Stryker, Abrams and Bradley. This technology is expected to make vehicles more effective in times of crisis and save service member lives.

The project includes OSS designs for a compute accelerator system that would facilitate video decoding and display, and PCIe 4.0 switched fabric to transfer and multicast video data from the externally mounted cameras. The OSS compute accelerator system will be designed to be rugged and lightweight, with up to 5 systems deployed per vehicle at each operator station. The system will be hermetically sealed and conduction cooled to operate in harsh environments.

The system will enable multicast video feeds from cameras mounted outside the vehicle to be displayed on up to 5 screens inside the vehicle. OSS gen 4 PCIe switch technology will interconnect the cameras and monitors, providing video with low-latency visualization. The Jetson AGX Orin modules will enable multi-sensor fusion and 360-degree visualization and allow for future AI features, such as object recognition and hazard avoidance.

The US Army chose OSS for its years of experience ruggedizing compute accelerators and powering them with the latest generation of PCIe technology and embedded GPU processors,” stated David Raun, CEO, OSS. “Our superior high-speed PCIe switch technology provides unmatched low latency compared to traditional fabric connections, with such speed being paramount for mission-critical government applications.

The company will work closely with the Army to deliver prototypes later this year.

The NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin provides server-class performance, delivering up to 275 TOPS of AI performance for multiple concurrent AI application pipelines. Its modules feature the NVIDIA Orin SoC with NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, Arm CPU, next gen deep learning and vision accelerators, and a video encoder and decoder.

Last year, OSS achieved Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) 2.0 Level 2 internal controls, for a secure, encrypted environment that safely stores federal contact information and controlled unclassified information. This achievement allowed OSS to win this project as a prime contractor with the US Army.

OSS revealed this system at the AFCEA West 2023 conference and exposition being held February 14-16, 2023 in San Diego, CA. OSS executives will be onsite to discuss the OSS products featuring the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin SoM as well as AI Transportable products incorporating NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs for rugged government applications.
