AI continues to have its impact on military computing projects, and applications involving the new architecture SOSA is no exception.

This webcast will examine how the newly released Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) leverages AI technologies to implement the use of video and data analytics at the edge with building blocks aligned to the open standard.

Key building blocks will be introduced through the use of a mock proposal and sample payload. Through this exercise, the speakers will demonstrate:

  • How to build a system
  • Which elements to include
  • How to scale the technologies
  • Ease of system configuration using SOSA
  • The benefits of interoperability

Technical details covered will include:

  • How to select a backplane to build the overarching reference architecture
  • NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture, which provides dedicated cores for AI optimization and addresses low latency requirements critical to military applications
  • The latest single board computers using Intel’s Tiger Lake chipset supporting PCIe Gen 4, and how the “heart” of the system interconnects the components
  • Addressing security questions with separate data and control planes
  • How data gets passed and process within the system’s GPGPU

The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session, so bring your questions to what promises to be a very informative event.
