Argos Ruggedized Edge System

Devices that support AI on the edge

Edge AI/Inference system, MIL-SPEC ready

Processing AI inference workloads (e.g., computer vision, object detection) at the edge in real time while protecting equipment from environmental hazards (temperature, dust, vibration, moisture, limited power, etc.) is a challenge.

Silicon Mechanics has designed a custom ruggedized system that supports internals similar to current-gen vehicle-borne systems for field use. Operates on limited power, in a broad temperature range, and resists dust and moisture.


  • Pre-configured for edge AI and inference workloads (computer vision, object detection, etc.).
  • More cost effective than AWS options, without vendor lock-in
  • Ruggedization or MIL-SPEC can be matched to customer requirements
  • Supports NVIDIA A100 GPU for optimal performance

Ideal Use Cases

  • Edge inference
  • Computer vision
  • Object detection
  • Anonomous sentry

We build each of our systems to “zero defect” standards in our U.S.-based manufacturing facilities. Then we handinspect every order, testing them to ensure they are 100% operational and optimized to support rapid deployment.
We offer a comprehensive 3-year warranty standard, with every system purchased. But you can add extended or custom warranties if your situation calls for it.
Available support for black site (no return) warranties and top-plate drive replacement.
