WulfPack™ COMPUTER CLUSTERS
WulfPack™ Computer Clusters provide the computational muscle for the most demanding signal and image processing algorithms. These high performance computer systems are designed for the challenging field environments associated with military aircraft and remote ground
Urban Robotics’ cluster management software seamlessly handles core load balancing for both streaming and batched based processing. Additional modules handle data distribution, health monitoring, load balancing, and job dependency/scheduling tasks. Whether tracking
moving cars in video streams, analyzing multiple SIGINT streams, or calculating Pi to 1 million digits, the WulfPack™ Computer cluster is a self contained rapidly deployable hardware platform for both aircraft and field installations.
At the center of the WulfPack™ Computer Cluster is the Urban Robotics WulfPack™ unit. A typical Wulfpack Computer Cluster consists of hundreds of Intel Cores, over a Terabyte of RAM, and built into transit cases for rapid deployment.
Having been deployed in theaters of active operations, the WulfPack™ Computer Cluster has proven its field readiness and durability. The system is now in its fourth generation of design.
- Low Power Design
Cluster is designed to run off generators and aircraft power, but still be computationally powerful
Typical Cluster Configuration makes heavy use of SSD drives for performance and reliability
- Heat Resistant
Hardware components chosen to minimize heat output and handle high ambient temperatures
- High Bandwidth
Discrete buses exist for each CPU, thus outperforming blade systems
Additional WulfPack™ systems can easily be added for increased capability/turnaround performance
- Modular architecture
Components are network-centric, connected via TCP/IP protocols
individual WulfPack™units can be hotswapped and replaced with no impact on active processing
- Streaming ready
Cluster management software designed for real time processing
A powerful cluster SDK is available to adapt your existing algorithms to a WulfPack™or heterogeneous cluster
