Products in the avionics industry need to be intrinsically intelligent and safe by incorporating value-added features that enhance their self-managed capabilities in monitoring, diagnostic, upgrades, early failure isolation, and cyber protection. As ruggedized edge devices possess all the necessary benefits, the demand for edge computing solutions has substantially increased. However, the equipment, security, and certifications needed to set up complete edge computing on the aircraft make it an option that only a few vendors can master. With in-depth knowledge and expertise in embedded solutions for edge computing, GOMA ELETTRONICA SPA — a private Italian corporation — delivers rugged product design, intensive stress testing and environmental validations.
The company’s embedded systems are now deployed in the aerospace industry for various purposes, including temperature management, speed control, sensors, flight data recording, and so on. Regardless of how the embedded systems are utilized, they are designed to withstand extreme conditions without compromising functionality. Moreover, the embedded systems also need to be supported by the right set of services to ensure longevity, maintainability and reliability. With a long track record of high-mix, low-volume rugged solutions designed and manufactured for aerospace, naval and vehicle electronics (vetronics) applications; GOMA delivers High-Performance Computing Platforms based on Open Standard Architecture.
To stay ahead of the curve, the company has adopted a vertically-integrated business model that encompasses an all In-House production cycle starting from the technical proposal and design to the production, integration, testing, validation and certification.The company’s unique business model combines COTS (Commercial off-the-shelf) products distribution, system integration, and custom product manufacturing to offer embedded solutions in the ruggedized equipment space.
There has been an increasing demand for Rugged Edge AI Inference & GPU-aided Computing Platforms and security and anti-tampering features in recent times. To meet customers’ needs, GOMA’s latest advanced mission computers leverage high-performance GPGPU (General-purpose computing on graphics processing units) engines for applications such as C5ISR (Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), situational awareness, signal intelligence (SIGINT) including machine learning and autonomy.
GOMA is a customer-centric corporation with an experienced and dedicated team of 150 employees focusing on providing innovative embedded solutions for Edge Computing. Dealing with demanding applications, the company is fully committed to meeting the customer’s requirements. As a vertically integrated company, GOMA has invested a substantial amount in human resources, technological equipment, instrumentation and infrastructures. The company ensures continuous investments in these aspects to maintain flexibility with agile responses to customer demands.
A client case study that showcases the competence of GOMA’s high-performance computing solutions is their interaction with a client-facing early obsolescence of a mission computer. As the previous manufacturer of the mission computer was no longer able to provide any more of the same unit, GOMA designed, manufactured and validated a 3F compatible system in a brief period that offered technological advantages in terms of performance. In addition, GOMA signed a contract with the client until 2029 due to the company’s top of the class edge computing solutions. This customer interaction is but one example that highlights why GOMA stands tall as one of the premier providers of standard and custom embedded systems.
