While defense systems are far from the first to realize the benefits of digital technology, they nevertheless obtain extraordinary benefits from it. However, one of greatest challenges remains the transformation of analog signals captured over the air into digital data streams--without...
This paper identifies the top 5 most common "traps" that can increase design risk, drive cost overruns and delay schedules. The paper also discusses possible mitigation strategies for each trap.
Designers of High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems, generally used to meet the most demanding sensor processing applications, need to be aware of the most common "traps"to avoid to help minimize extra costs, delayed schedules, and other undesired obstacles to successful...
Underwater Defense Technology (UDT) 2013: Technology Advances in Level Winding of Multi Diameter Cable Configurations
This conference paper compares and contrasts various level winding operational approaches such as fleet angle sensing, passive wrap adjustment and finally macro driven and their effect on level winding.
Today, most defense programs rely on a multi-tiered supply chain characterized by costly layers of integration and management. Historically, this acquisition structure was necessary and emerged to respond to technology development that followed a classic functional decomposition approach.
There are two standard architectures that are defined for crash protected recorders; namely ARINC 757 and ARINC 767. This white paper provides an overview and introduction to those standards.
Whether in the industrial, military or aerospace markets, the need for motion control is universal. A motion control application involves a motor that imparts motion requiring linear and/or rotational precision.
