About Raptor

The Raptor is a rugged, small form factor, Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS), pre-qualified computer based on VNX (VITA-74) standard. Derived directly from VPX (VITA 46) & OpenVPX (VITA 65), VNX is the continued evolution of the VPX standard specifically designed for significantly smaller deployments. The Raptor may be 25% to 33% the size of a typical 3U VPX ½ ATR platform, making it the only true industry standard for MIL-spec, rugged small form factor computing. Trident Infosol has provided VNX systems the world over, and is a member of the ANSI/VITA-74 Technical Committee and VNX Marketing Alliance.

Though Raptor is small in Size, Weight and Power (SWaP), there is no need to compromise CPU processing, I/O, video/graphics and storage support. Utilizing the most current SWaP optimized, System on a Chip (SoC) compute options, high density connectors and advanced cooling design, the Raptor is suitable for many military and avionic C4ISR applications such as:

Mission Computer
Image Processor
Display Processor
Data Recorder
Signal Data Concentrator
EW Processor
Data Link Processor
Communications Controller

Housed in a rugged, conduction cooled, fan-less enclosure, Raptor complies with all typical military environmental standards. Since the Raptor is based on the VNX standard this allows customers to choose from a multitude of vendors for specialized functionality. The Raptor can support MIL-STD-1553B, ARINC-429, AS-5643 MIL Firewire, Video Graphics, RS-232/422/485, Fibre Channel, GigE and 10GigE, Analog and Discrete I/O, FPGA / GPGPU processors, Inertial Measurement and Navigation, GPS, Wi-Fi and Cellular Modem signals.
