Systel, Inc., an industry leader of custom and COTS rugged computing solutions has been selected to support the U.S. Navy Naval Air Systems Command MQ-8C Fire Scout program with rugged, SWaP optimized high density computing servers.

The MQ-8C Fire Scout is an unmanned autonomous helicopter designed to provide reconnaissance, situational awareness, and precision targeting support for ground, air, and sea forces.

The UAV is integrated with the Minotaur Track Management and Mission Management System software, integrating sensors and data into a comprehensive common operating picture shared by multiple aircraft and vessels. With its inclusion in the Fire Scout program, Systel continues its long-term support of Minotaur-integrated platforms throughout the DoD including the Navy, Coast Guard, and Department of Homeland Security. Systel’s 2U and 4U rugged servers support ISR and ASW missions on aircraft and ground control stations such as Fire Scout, P-8A Poseidon, C-130J Super Hercules, MEA King Air, and P-3 Orion.

“Systel has consistently demonstrated innovative and flexible hardware designs and commitment to program success. Their long and successful track record supporting Minotaur-based platforms makes them an ideal technology partner,” said Rob Murphy, Ship Integration IPT Lead, NAVAIR.

“We are proud of our continued program partnerships within the Minotaur community,” said Anu Pankaj, program manager at Systel. “Our rugged mission computers are specifically engineered for the immense video and data-intensive processing demands of Minotaur platforms and we are excited to successfully deploy these systems in support of Fire Scout.”
