AUSA Global Forces Symposium, featuring Galleon’s Ground Vehicle Computer

AUSA Global Forces Symposium, featuring Galleon’s Ground Vehicle Computer

The annual AUSA Global Forces event held in Washington DC by the Association of the US Army is the largest land power expo in North America. AUSA Global Force is an opportunity for military personnel, government officials, and selected members of the public to come together to discuss national defense, military technology, and other important topics. The event includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, and presentations on a wide range of topics related to the Army.

At the AUSA Global Force Symposium and Exposition, the State-of-the-Army presentation is a highly regarded event. This presentation provides attendees with an update on the current state of the Army and its plans, and is delivered by the Secretary of the Army, who oversees the administration and operation of the United States Army.

In addition to the presentations, the AUSA Global Forces Expo also features the latest technology in action. This is an opportunity for companies involved in the defense industry to showcase their newest products and services to the attendees of the event. This includes everything from weapons and vehicles to software, hardware, and computing systems.

One of the anticipated computing systems to be featured at the event this year is the Galleon Multi-Purpose Ground Vehicle Computer by Galleon Embedded Computing. The GVC is designed specifically for vehicle applications for the most rugged environments, while keeping high-performance and functionality. GVC’s rugged design makes it capable of withstanding harsh conditions, such as extreme temperatures, shocks, and vibrations that are common in these environments. Additionally, the GVC’s SWaP-C (Size, Weight, and Power – Cost) centered design ensures that it takes up minimal space and power while still delivering high-performance computing capabilities. This makes it an ideal solution for vehicles where space and power are limited. GVC’s removable data module with multi-layer encryption provides added security for the data making the computer ideal and essential for military applications.  The GVC is also equipped with various I/O interfaces, including Ethernet, CAN bus, USB, and serial ports, providing connectivity to other vehicle subsystems and devices. Galleon Multi-Purpose Ground Vehicle Computer is well-suited for a variety of vehicle applications where reliable and high-performance rugged computing is required.

The AUSA is a growing organization, having tripled in members since 2017. This is a testament to the importance of the work that the AUSA does in supporting the United States Army and its soldiers. The organization is dedicated to advocating for the Army and promoting the welfare of its soldiers, veterans, and their families.

In conclusion, the AUSA Global Force Symposium and Exposition is a must-attend event for anyone who is interested in national defense, military technology, and the United States Army. With its impressive line-up of presentations, the latest technology in action, and a growing membership, the AUSA is an organization that is making a significant impact in the world of national defense.
