Backed by its ultra-low power and ultra-high-performance attributes, Tachyum's Prodigy Universal Processor excels in improving next-generation computing solutions such as edge computing, IoT, HPC, convolutional AI, explainable AI, general AI, bio AI and spiking neural networks. Although the company's primary commercial market is hyperscale data centers, Tachyum has seen a dramatic rise in interest from government agencies – notably US and NATO government entities – in the company’s disruptive products.
These agencies are looking to leverage Prodigy to support various public sectors, such as science, medicine, communication, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture and defense. Tachyum is currently performing evaluation testing and benchmarking for several national labs. Additionally, multiple government agencies have expressed interest in purchasing reference boards to evaluate and qualify Prodigy for government customers.
Prodigy's strategic value to national defense spans the entire gamut of the DoD and Intelligence community's missions and systems. Its ultra-low-power, ultra-high-performance vastly improves next-generation defense systems such as unmanned aerial and underwater vehicle systems, cybersecurity, communications, analytics, and more.
Prodigy's impact is to DoD/IC missions is very high. Its unprecedented universal compute capabilities and its cost and energy efficiency in data center, AI, HPC, and telecommunications use cases are directly transferrable to defense and intelligence systems. Prodigy will proliferate low-latency compute, Big AI and unprecedented HPC capabilities throughout US Government departments, agencies, programs and units. Within the command & control infrastructure, the unique ability of Prodigy-powered servers to be seamlessly and dynamically switched from normal workloads to AI processing, will deliver high-performance, low-latency AI to operational units.
In addition to performance, size, weight, and power (SWAP) are the hallmarks of good defense systems. As an example; Prodigy will provide drone forces and satellites with more than 10x the onboard processing power efficiency (MIPS/Watt) of each compute core compared to current baseline systems, and it will enable onboard Big AI to be efficiently exploited CAPEX-free (since Prodigy processors already provisioned for normal compute workloads can seamlessly switch to AI workloads).
Tachyum Government is committed to working with its government data center customers, both in the U.S. and abroad, to ensure that yesterday's hyperscale data centers become tomorrow's energy efficient Universal Computing Centers, providing cloud-based, low-cost computing, AI and HPC to government agencies. Likewise, it is committed to work with federal government agencies who wish to employ Prodigy in non-data center applications and operational systems.
