Systel will supply computing servers for the US Navy’s MQ-8C Fire Scout programme, the company announced on 9 April.

The MQ-8C Fire Scout UAS is designed to provide reconnaissance, situational awareness and precision targeting support for ground, air and sea forces. Integrated with the Minotaur mission management system software, the system provides a comprehensive common operating picture shared by multiple aircraft and vessels.

Systel's rugged, SWaP-optimised high density computing servers will provide the high video and data-intensive processing power required by the Minotaur platform.

Rob Murphy, ship integration IPT Lead, NAVAIR, said: ‘Systel has consistently demonstrated innovative and flexible hardware designs and commitment to programme success. Their long and successful track record supporting Minotaur-based platforms makes them an ideal technology partner.’
