QCM and New High Performance Edge Computing HW.

For very fast QCM edge computing, Ontonix offers in partnership with Eurotech, NEW ruggedized military grade high performance Single Board Computers (SBC) which are the best option when it comes to customization in embedded applications such as on vehicles or aircraft. With a rich set of I/O connections, high flexibility and easy expansion capability, they can easily be adapted to numerous scenarios, including a direct link to a CAN-bus and the ability to process a very high number of data channels.

All Single Board Computer boards and modules are based on a variety of CPU architectures: Atom, Core I, Xeon D and ARM. Eurotech’s end-to-end system engineering solutions meet the complex requirements of Defense Electronics applications, whether it be our Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) products that meet Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) requirements for the harsh environments of Defense and Aerospace applications, or ready to deploy, field-proven design services based on high-end technologies for strategic and tactical operations.

In addition to the standard QCM output:

  1. Current system complexity
  2. Current critical complexity
  3. Current system resilience
  4. Early-warnings of potential malfunctions or collapses
  5. Indication of sources of malfunctions
  6. Ranking of channels in terms of complexity and resilience footprints
  7. Maintenance-specific information

SCB’s output also additional complexity-derived information. There is sufficient storage space to hold days-worth of raw data as well as QCM generated information.

The Quora™ systems is a family of rugged embedded computers designed for use in mission critical airborne, ground and shipboard applications. Quora™ systems are designed and built around rugged, small form factor (SFF) COTS-based subsystems. They are modular and expandable, with state-of-the-art processors, powerful graphics and data processing options available to satisfy a wide variety of mission requirements. Consisting of pre-integrated and pre-qualified subsystems, our mission computers help get your program validated and deployed faster, while minimizing the costs and risks associated with a new design effort. Quora™ tactical mission computers are ideal for use in C4ISR technology refresh and platform upgrade programs under thermal, shock and vibration extremes in unmanned and manned aircraft, ground vehicles, and maritime platforms.

  • Rugged MIL-STD-810 certifiable Modified COTS (MCOTS) processors
  • Environmentally-hardened subsystems that can be tailored to specific program needs
  • Modular and expandable designs for SWaP sensitive programs
  • Enhanced security via Trusted Platform Modules (TPM)

The Quora A-series™ features Intel® Atom™ E38xx processors; with up to four cores, 4GB of RAM and 8GB of eMMC. Designed for use in power-constrained applications, the A-series has a typical power draw of 15W while maintaining a high level of computational and I/O capabilities. It has been tested and certified for use in extreme environments, including extended temperatures, shock and vibe, and fire and smoke. Available with flexible CPU, power supply, memory, storage and I/O subsystem options, A-series computers can be customized and certified to meet specific application or program requirements.

Established originally in 2005 in the USA, Ontonix is a technology company headquartered in Como, Italy. The unusual technology and solutions developed by Ontonix focus on countering what most threatens safety, advanced products, critical infrastructures, or IT network security - the rapid growth of complexity. In 2007 the company received recognition by being selected as Gartner's Cool Vendor. What makes Ontonix different from all those companies and research centers who claim to manage complexity is that we have a complexity metric. This means that we MEASURE complexity. We detect anomalies in complex defense systems without using Machine Learning for one very good reason: our clients don’t have the luxury of multiple examples of failures necessary to teach software to recognize them. We identify anomalies without having seen them before. Sometimes, you must get it right the first and only time!
