E4 Aerospace & Defence
Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (EDTs)
The E4 Aerospace & Defence division distributes High Performance embedded/edge Computing (HPeC) products based on Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products
Our Aerospace & Defence division is capable of offering Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data Exploitation, Cloud Native Computing and Heterogenous Computing solutions.
E4 AEROSPACE & DEFENCE AIMS TO ACCELERATE THE ADOPTION OF COMMERCIAL AND DUAL-USE TECHNOLOGIES WITH HIGH TECHNOLOGICAL READINESS LEVELS TO RESOLVE OPERATIVE PROBLEMS QUICKLY, EFFICIENTLY AND ON A LARGE SCALE
The E4 Aerospace & Defence approach
We engineer innovative solutions working in close contact with international partners and emerging start-ups to obtain concrete results and to support the adoption of commercial and dual use technologies
FROM PROOF OF CONCEPT TO IMPLEMENTATION AND SUPPORT
We respond to the client’s express requests, from the first Proof Of Concept (POC) through to the product’s validation, onsite implementation and large scale production. We offer support with our solutions throughout their life cycle.
We offer solutions capable of managing a whole Artificial Intelligence workload, creating systems that can simply and efficiently carry out the phases of Data Acquisition, Data Preparation, Modelling and Model Validation, as well as inference on airborne or rugged platforms optimised for weight and consumption.
Areas of use: RF Signal Classification (ELINT); Automatic Target Recognition (ATR); Image Classification; Cockpit Voice Assistant, FOB Protection etc.
CLOUD NATIVE COMPUTING
The Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) standard of the American Department of Defence calls for an acquisition and design strategy of solutions that adopt open standards and support modular systems architecture. The DevSecOps guidelines specify that cloud native architecture based on microservices and orchestrated by Kubernetes be aligned with MOSA standards. Thus we offer cloud native computing architecture based on Kubernetes and Openstack.
Areas of use: Combat Cloud; Military IOT; distributed architecture etc.
E4 Aerospace & Defence specialises in Real Time and HPC computing solutions that use a mix of computational architectures designed to respond to the specific application requirements of the client. It is made up of CPU, GPU and FPGA architecture.
Areas of use: Multi-channel radar, Digital Beamforming, Electronic Warfare etc.
We create computing, storage and networking architecture chiefly designed for the simulation and implementation of the Digital Twin Environment (DTE), characterised by containerised software components, relevant quantities of data to be managed (file, block and object storage), use of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for predicative activities (i.e. predictive maintenance), as well as edge computing devices on both the shop-floor and operating bases.
Areas of use: Cloud Simulation, DTE, HUMS, Training etc.
