Kontron speeds autonomous defense designs

Kontron announced the S2000 Development Platform and the upcoming release of its COBALT S1901 platform. Designed to help fast-track autonomous application software in a lab environment, the S2000 Development Platform enables defense application developers to experiment with, test and validate actual-size PCIe GPU or accelator cards used in defense system deployments. With the S2000, designers of complex and challenging new autonomous, artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning military applications can optimize the configuration and system platform for production deployments.

The S2000 features the Intel Xeon scalable 8160T 24-core processor providing a powerful  development tool that helps accelerate innovation. Additional processor options are available. The platform has an expansion slot for full-sized GPU, FPGA accelerators and video PCIe cards and a modular, ruggedized carrier board that is suitable for deployment. It also offers 128 GB of M.2 storage and can be purchased in a liquid or air-cooled chassis.

The COBALT S1901 HPEC platform features multiple GPU, FPGA accelerator cards or video module options. It offers extensive high-speed I/O options such as 10 GbE copper or fiber, USB 3.0, ruggedized connectors for RF and camera interfaces. Storage capacities are met with its M.2 NVME slots or high capacity 2.5-inch SSD slots (fixed or removable). The latest COBALT platform also offers WiFi and/or LTE cellular modem connectivity options. In addition, it provides superior DSP performance, is ruggedized for harsh environments and meets the military's strict SWaP-C guidelines.

The COBALT S1901 employs Kontron's proven, open-architecture COMe-bDV7R Computer-on-Module that delivers server-grade performance via its Intel Atom processor C3000 series processor performance and its multi-processing cores permit mulitple configuration options allowing one design to scale across many use cases. It is available with up to 64 GB of RAM, with additionally available COMe module, processor and memory options. Customers can also select from air cooled assist and conduction cooled platform options.
