GeoInt Accelerator


Get Better Results with GE and NVIDIA

GeoInt Accelerator NVIDIA

The Defense and Geo Intelligence community heavily relies on accurate and timely information in its strategic and day-to-day operations. Intelligence gathering and assessment are essential parts of these activities that see data coming from diverse sources such as satellites, autonomous vehicles, surveillance cameras, and radar.

Converting this raw data into actionable information requires a significant computing infrastructure. The NVIDIA GeoInt Accelerator is the first accelerated platform that enables defense and homeland security analysts to accurately generate actionable intelligence from petabytes of data, images and video. Powered with GPUs, image- and video processing can run 10x-75x faster compared to CPU only systems.


Ruggedized Hardware Enhances Your GeoInt Capabilities

The MAGIC1 rugged display computer, with NVIDIA EXK107 GPU, provides the ruggedized hardware solution needed to deploy GeoINT Accelerator on-board aircraft and autonomous vehicles for real-time processing, expanding GeoINT Accelerator's functionality beyond ground clusters and workstations. GE works with multiple GeoINT Accelerator participating program partners to ensure each application's requirements are met.
