DefenceX awarded Ignite spark funding

Mar 23, 2024 by Ross Newman

We are excited to announce a groundbreaking development in the realm of defence technology: the GXA-1, a cutting-edge edge processor powered by Nvidia technology designed to run our ApexGuardian data logger application. Designed and manufactured right here in Queensland, the GXA-1 promises to revolutionize defence applications by enabling AI in even the harshest environments and will be sold as a stand alone solution as Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) solution for AI enablement.

At DefenceX, we are driven by a mission to leverage innovation for the greater good. Our team of dedicated professionals has worked tirelessly to create a platform that not only meets the rigorous demands of defence, autonomy, and mining but also showcases Queensland’s prowess in technological advancement.

The recent award of funding from Advance Queensland’s Ignite Spark Fund is a testament to the potential of the GXA-1. This grant will play a pivotal role in furthering our development efforts, allowing us to refine our solution and bring it to market faster than ever before.

With the GXA-1, defence applications will gain a powerful ally capable of processing vast amounts of data in real-time, empowering decision-makers with actionable insights even in the most challenging conditions. From border security to battlefield intelligence, the possibilities are limitless.

But our ambitions extend beyond defence alone. By enabling AI in harsh environments, we aim to catalyze innovation across industries, driving advancements in autonomous systems, resource extraction, and beyond. Queensland’s innovation ecosystem is primed for growth, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this exciting journey.

As we embark on this adventure, we invite you to join us every step of the way. Follow our progress as we push the boundaries of what’s possible with the GXA-1 and stay tuned for updates on our journey towards a safer, smarter future.

Together, let’s shape the future of technology and pave the way for a brighter tomorrow.

DefenceX add support for APC Technology GVA Display

Mar 21, 2023 by Ross Newman

Exciting news from DefenceX! We are proud to announce that our C4ISR software and solutions now support the Generic Vehicle Architecture (GVA) and with support from APC Technology, we have updated our flagship product, Vivoe Lite, to run on their rugged display out of the box.

This represents a significant milestone for DefenceX, as we are now able to offer indigenous GVA-compliant hardware for the Human Machine Interface (HMI). Vivoe Lite is at the heart of a vehicle platform, providing the operator interface and services needed to build a complete architecture capable of interfacing with sensors, effectors, and subsystem components in the automotive domain.

What’s more, our HMI framework is open and free to download, and we are (as always) happy to give demonstrations to interested parties. With deep domain knowledge and expertise in this area, we are committed to helping our customers get their ground vehicle platform to market quickly and effectively.

At DefenceX, we are passionate about providing cutting-edge technology solutions that support the needs of the defence sector. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest levels of service and support to our clients, and we look forward to continuing to innovate in this space.
