HPC/AI/Edge for Aerospace and Defense

Achieving Tactical Advantage with High-Performance Computing and Data Storage

Innovative HPC, AI, and Edge Hardware for Aerospace and Defense Challenges

Today, new capabilities in aerospace and defense depend less on innovations in metals and manufacturing processes and more on innovations in computing.

That’s why, for 20 years, Silicon Mechanics has been helping aerospace and defense teams using leading-edge engineering to transform real-time decision-making, expand situational awareness and security, enhance military readiness, and design next-generation equipment.

Our custom-engineered HPC/AI computing clusters, edge computing devices, and enterprise-scale storage solutions are creating computing scenarios once thought impossible. By combining proven platforms, cost-effective components, and leading-edge technologies, the engineers at Silicon Mechanics are changing the face of aerospace and defense. With Silicon Mechanics, it's always Expert IncludedSM.

Computing for Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace and defense has been one of the fastest sectors to adopt leading-edge computing. That’s why Silicon Mechanics engineers created a wide variety of high-performance computing solutions that can transform the industry.

Custom- Engineered, Use Case-specific Reference Architectures

Atlas AI Cluster
Whether you’re looking for a solution for HPC or AI inference, the Linux-based Atlas AI Cluster is a great choice. It includes best-of-breed technology (including the NVIDIA® HGX™ A100 and AMD EPYC™) and is configured for fast deployment, powerful results, and scalability to any size.

Get to result faster with the Atlas AI Cluster.

Triton Big Data Cluster
Software-defined architecture based on the massively scalable, parallel Weka file system (WekaFS) (via NVMe-over-fabric) makes the Triton Big Data Cluster ideal for HPC with large datasets or for AI training (which requires large datasets).

Manage workloads even with the largest datasets with the Triton Big Data Cluster.

Customizable Servers
To ensure aerospace and defense technology solutions for organizations of all sizes, Silicon Mechanics offers an online server configurator. To harness the power of HPC quickly and effectively, our configurator allows you to quickly and easily configure single servers to suit your specific needs. These server configurations can then be reviewed by an expert, ensuring designs maximize performance and value. They then ship to you from a U.S.-based Silicon Mechanics engineering service center.

Data Storage for Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace and defense projects use massive quantities of data, in a wide variety of formats that increasingly include video and very high-resolution images. That’s why Silicon Mechanics engineers design storage solutions that are high performing, scalable, and secure, but ensure your data is easily accessible.

Custom- Engineered, Use Case-specific Reference Architectures

Metis HPC Storage Cluster
The Metis HPC Storage Cluster leverages software-defined storage to offer you highly available and dense capacity, robust data protection features, and support for multiple concurrent users. This scalable solution doesn’t sacrifice the high storage speeds necessary for HPC performance.

Never let storage speed, density, or availability slow down your HPC with the Metis HPC Storage Cluster.

Triton Big Data Cluster
Extracting value from massive data sets with accelerated computing (HPC or AI/ML) can be challenging when confronted by computing bottlenecks and poor infrastructure performance. The Triton Big Data Cluster removes bottlenecks via a shared pool of NVMe over fabric (NVMeOF) that enables jobs to run up to 10x faster.

Avoid storage bottlenecks and improve analytics with the Triton Big Data Cluster.

Customizable Storage Appliances
If you’re looking for specific storage appliances, our configurator brings together engineering best practices, component compatibility within physical designs, and other parameters to help you quickly configure the optimal product for your unique needs.

Edge Computing for Aerospace and Defense

Edge computing is becoming a critical component for aerospace and defense teams, improving intelligence, communication, navigation, and weapons systems as they help provide better awareness, operational capacity, and safety.

Silicon Mechanics can help you achieve the benefits of advanced edge computing, including AI and big data analytics at the edge that had previously seemed impossible in harsh environments.

Argos Ruggedized Edge Appliance
Processing AI inference workloads at the edge in real time while protecting equipment from environmental hazards is a challenge. The Argos Ruggedized Edge Appliance is a custom ruggedized system that supports internals similar to current-gen vehicle-borne systems for field use. Argos operates on limited power, in a broad temperature range, and resists dust and moisture.

Enable edge AI and inference workloads with the Argos Ruggedized Edge Appliance.

Umbriel HCI Edge Cluster
A secure enclave/cloud environment is complex to design. Putting that capability at the edge makes it even more challenging and costly. The Umbriel Edge HCI Cluster solves the problem with a dense, scalable central cloud with a smaller, localized cloud-in-a-box at the edge, all using commodity components to keep costs down.
