Achieve Military Overmatch
with the Tactical Edge

To implement the National Defense Strategy, the Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2), and other calls to action, the armed services are changing. Edge computing has become critical to achieving competitive advantage and, ultimately, mission success in modern warfighting.
Today, ruggedized edge devices are embedded in advanced intelligence, communication, navigation, and weapons systems, among other places in the growing military-Internet-of-things (MIoT). Together, they provide warfighters and commanders with superior situational awareness, enhanced operational capacity, greater safety, and many other benefits – even in the most remote, physically harsh environments, making edge computing a true force multiplier. And, emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI) at the edge and big data analytics, are driving deployment of tactical edge devices faster and even more broadly into military technology. The only question is which tactical edge computing supplier can meet these unique needs and provide the competitive edge of a connected, information-advantaged fighting force in a cost-effective manner?
That’s why Comark has been the partner of choice for the most challenging edge computing projects from the U.S. Department of Defense and its various service branches.

Featured Case Study

Enabling In-field Artificial Intelligence with a Highly Portable Ruggedized Edge Device

A U.S. government defense contractor needed help supporting complex artificial intelligence workloads in a physical device meant to be deployed in a variety of field settings, including large, public events.

This edge system needed to run artificial intelligence workloads such as computer vision and object detection. However, the complex design also had to be safe from the impact of environmental hazards (including, temperature, dust, vibration, moisture, etc.) and be able to operate in real world field conditions (such as limited size, ability to operate in broad temperature range, limited power, etc.)

Fortunately, the team was able to create a custom-engineered ruggedized edge system that protects against environmental conditions and allows for in-field deployment results comparable to current vehicle-borne systems.

The in-field edge device proved so useful to the client that they began integrating the component into other DoD project bids.

At the same time, Comark created a version of the device, affectionally called the Argos Ruggedized Edge System after the multi-eyed, “all-seeing” Greek legend and the original use case, suited for broader artificial intelligence deployments in other government agencies and service branches.
