Product Buzz: Condor GR4 PCIe

Future-Proof, Rugged PCIe Graphics/GPGPU Card for Airborne/Naval ISR Applications

The new Condor GR4 PCI Express is a rugged, 3G-SDI video capture and GPGPU processor. It is the industry’s first rugged PCI Express (PCIe) graphics/GPGPU card with four 3G-SDI (Serial Digital Interface standard suitable for 1080p video up to 60fps, or 1080p60) inputs and outputs. Meeting industry demand for real-time video capture and display capabilities, the Condor GR4 PCIe provides an all-in-one solution for simultaneous raw video capture, video processing and video streaming.

Future-Proof, All-in-One Solution

The Condor GR4 PCIe card is designed for use in rugged rackmount servers and workstations and to be deployed in airborne and naval surveillance programs. The high performance passively cooled 3G-SDI video capture and GPGPU board provides a single card solution to simultaneously capture, process, encode, decode, display, and stream video data in manned and unmanned rugged ISR applications.

The Condor GR4 PCIe card is designed to host NVIDIA Pascal® and Turing™-based MXM GPUs (graphics processing units), supporting PCI Express (PCIe) Gen 3.0 (16, 8, or 4 lane). The product currently has two variants, based on the NVIDIA GPUs — Quadro P5000 or Quadro P3000 – but also offers an upgrade path to the latest NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ Turing GPUs.

High-Speed Data Transfer

This product is ideal for compute-intensive applications that require multiple 3G-SDI (or HD-SDI) video feeds to be captured, processed and displayed, such as C5ISR and remote sensing / analysis. The GR4 PCIe delivers exceptional MTBF (mean time between failure) performance – aided by passive cooling and fan-less design.

The Condor PCIe graphics and raw video capture card enables direct video capture to GPU memory using GPUDirect RDMA for high-speed data transfer. In GPU memory, the applications can do processing such as image analysis, image enhancement, 360-degree video stitching, sensor fusion, and target detection, using GPGPU (CUDA® / OpenCL™), all with extremely low latency. The card also supports CUDA and OpenCL based GPGPU computing, AI processing (artificial intelligence), deep learning, and H265/H264 encoding/decoding.
