WOLF Advanced Technology
Stouffville, Ontario, Canada
WOLF Advanced Technology (“WOLF”) recently announced that NASA has chosen two WOLF video graphics modules to take part in the development of NASA's X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology (QueSST) aircraft. Now under construction by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company at its famed Skunk Works plant in Palmdale, California, the X-59 is designed to reduce the noise generated by a sonic boom. Once fully tested and pronounced safe to fly within the National Airspace, the X-59 in late 2022 will begin making supersonic flights over select communities to measure residents’ reactions to any noise they might hear.
The chosen products, the XMC-E9171-VO (WOLF-3196) and the XMC-FGX2-SDI-8IO (WOLF-3180), provide video capture, process, encode, and display capabilities to help enable NASA's “windowless cockpit display system”, the eXternal Vision System (XVS). NASA's XVS is designed to replace a front windshield with video display technology in NASA's Low-Boom Flight Demonstration mission.
The XMC-E9171-VO features an AMD Radeon GPU, a chip-down rugged design that meets the MIL-810 specification and can handle up to five 4K displays using Display Port 1.4, and High Dynamic Range video with 10-bit color depth.
The XMC-FGX2-SDI-8IO is WOLF's second-generation Frame Grabber eXtreme (FGX) which enables up to eight 3G/HD-SDI or four 12G-SDI inputs and outputs, two analog inputs and outputs, a PCIe Gen4 interface that can handle up to 15.75 GB/s, and ultra-low-latency H.265 encoding. It supports direct user access to FPGA HDL logic for encryption, analysis, and image recognition. A 10GigE LAN interface is also supported.
WOLF Advanced Technology designs, develops and manufactures military grade rugged boards for video capture, process, encode and display. Their products are designed to operate in harsh aerospace and defense environments without sacrificing any of the processing power available from the latest generation NVIDIA, AMD and Xilinx high-speed GPUs, APUs and FPGAs.
