OSS receives order for new AI-powered satellite signal regeneration system

(31 July 2019 - OSS) One Stop Systems, a leader in specialized high-performance edge computing, has won a $1.1 million initial order from a prominent satellite company for the supply and support of the OSS-Volta16 all-in-one AI on the Fly GPU accelerated computing system for satellite signal regeneration.

By integrating the latest generation NVIDIA GPUs with NVLink, high speed networking and powerful PCI Express scale-out switch technology, the all-in-one Volta-16 platform enables ground stations with previously unheard-of amounts of interconnect bandwidth, storage and real-time computational power deployed at the point of data collection.

Initial systems will be deployed across three satellite ground stations located around the world, first in the U.S., followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. The systems will allow the processing of satellite signals in each of the customer’s secure sites as they return to earth using AI deep learning models they developed.

The local high-performance computing equipment from OSS provides real-time signal transformation on premise rather than transporting the data to a remote data center or cloud provider for processing. Localized data collection with AI processing avoids issues with external network latency, congestion and security.

“We look forward to working with this customer to deploy another specialized high-performance computing system, this time for a new AI on the Fly application,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of OSS. “They chose OSS for this project because of our exceptional ability to provide high-performance edge computing for powering demanding AI applications. We will work closely with the customer to fulfill these initial orders, with the expectation for this design win to ramp up into full production in 2020.”

OSS AI on the Fly systems provide world-class data collection, network redundancy and processing performance. This is a must for the demanding on-board, real-time computational analysis required by the next generation of signal processing applications. OSS plans to ship the systems in the third quarter of 2019.
