Aitech and FlySight Resolve Modern Situational Awareness Challenges in SWAP-constrained Environments

Aitech Systems has collaborated with FlySight Srl to bring improved situation awareness into SWAP-constrained military applications. In this innovative partnership, FlySight’s AI-based, real-time Augmented Reality engine OPENSIGHT-mc has been integrated into Aitech’s A172, a small form factor (SFF) mission computer for applications requiring high-performance data and video processing in harsh environments.

 Designed to assist in critical aircraft missions, this robust, data-driven system seeks to provide military and defense operations with improved autonomous tasks, situation control, intelligence, and decision-making assurance. The combined mission computer and AR engine solution eases integration issues and facilitates better model recognition, event reasoning, and adaptive learning using available data.

Pratish Shah, General Manager U.S. at Aitech, noted, “Today’s military system designers are looking for more comprehensive, integrated solutions that advance situational awareness while reducing development efforts. Working with FlySight to integrate OPENSIGHT into our A172 delivers this combination to our customers while meeting the modern challenges of SwaP optimization, a key factor in avionics platforms.”

Andrea Masini, CTO for FlySight Srl, commented, “New scenarios and new challenges are constantly emerging that push our industry to achieve improved situational awareness in real-time. The Paris Air Show is the perfect venue to showcase the potential that this combined solution brings to the international aircraft community.”

This very high-performance, ruggedized, and secure SWAP-constrained mission computer system can be customizable in every aspect and for specific applications to meet virtually any mission-critical environment.

Aitech’s A172 weighs below 2.25 kg and is designed for applications requiring high-performance data and video processing in a SWAP-constrained environment. Based on Intel’s 11-generation Tiger Lake UP3 CPU SoC, it provides an exceptional performance-to-power ratio while supporting a strong integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU with 96 Execution Units (EUs). Its modular architecture allows fast upgrades to next-generation Intel CPUs and integration of additional functionality, I/Os, and storage (e.g., analog or digital frame grabbers).
