The XSR Mission Computer is a compact, high-performance platform for your processing application.


The XSR Mission Computer design is centered on the use of Open Architecture COTS modules allowing the user to have flexibility in the choice of embedded processor and I/O configuration within the system. The host module provides a standard I/O configuration including Ethernet, Serial Comms, GPIO, USB, and Graphics. This can be further enhanced by using a combination of XMC and miniPCIe expansion modules to meet specific requirements. This approach allows the XSR Mission Computer to be available with I/O combinations including MIL-STD-1553B, Arinc429, CanBus, Video, Audio, Hotlink and much more.


Intel Core i7 and Xeon processor options, including the latest 9th generation, are supported with up to 96GB SDRAM supporting ECC.


The XSR Mission Computer is designed to meet the most severe environmental conditions without compromising on functionality and performance. The Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) optimized design of the Mission Computer makes it ideal for use in small unmanned aerial and ground vehicles (UAVs, UGVs), surveillance, HD video applications, sensor development and testing, and more.


Optional FIPS 140-2 and AES-256 hardware encryption provides a high level of data security with flexible key management options, including physical key tokens through front panel key loading port and remote loading over a secure network connection.


Galleon Embedded Computing’s quality management system is certified to Aerospace Standard AS/EN 9100 and ISO 9001.
