For on-board monitoring of critical components or systems, Ontonix offers the Complexity And Health Monitoring System (CAHMS) – an IoT Edge Gateway that can be mounted on tanks, land vehicles, aircraft, submarines or on any mission-critical equipment and deliver early warning signals of imminent systemic anomalies, before they materialize.
The CAHMS is based on QCM (Quantitative Complexity Management) technology which is an advanced form of AI – Artificial Intuition. The key characteristic of QCM technology is that it doesn’t require any form of Machine Learning. In fact, highly complex military equipment can fail in countless ways, and there are simply not enough examples of anomalies or failures from which to learn. The QCM is able to spot an anomaly without having ‘seen’ it before. This makes is particularly suitable for rapidly changing and hazardous scenarios.
The CAHMS, delivered in partnership with EUROTECH, is based on ruggedized military-grade high performance Tactical Mission Computers. With a rich set of I/O connections, high flexibility and expansion capability, they can be easily adapted to numerous scenarios, including a direct link to a CAN-bus.
The CAHMS delivers early warning of malfunctions or anomalies tens of minutes before they happen.
Tactical Mission Computers are rugged embedded computers designed for use in mission critical airborne, ground and shipboard applications. These 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, Tactical Mission Computers are ideal for use 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)
- CAN bus and LAN data acquisition ports
TMCs run a Linux operating system and are configured with the QCM module OntoNet™.
The CAHMS is delivered in three configurations:
- Basic – up to 100 data channels
- Super – up to 500 data channels
- Ultra – up to 1000 data channels
The basic configuration is offered on EUROTECH’s Bolt 20-25 Gateway.
The Anomaly Dashboard can be mounted as an independent 5” display or integrated into an existing system. It indicates all current anomalies, as well as their severity levels.
The CAHMS detects anomalies before they materialize
Ontonix is the only company to offer Quantitative Complexity Management (QCM) technology and HW solutions for measuring the complexity of processes, mission-critical systems & infrastructures.
Monitoring complexity helps anticipate crises, malfunctions and attacks. Since 2005. Beyond Artificial Intelligence. Beyond Machine Learning.
