The ability of COTS electronic modules to meet the environmental requirements of tactical fighter jets has long been questioned, with one of the primary concerns being vibration survivability.
This white paper discusses software and hardware routing and compares and contrasts the tradeoffs in terms of performance, SWaP, function, and information assurance.
Military and aerospace system architects and integrators are faced with new challenges from their customers with respect to increasing requirements for safety- and security-critical applications. As military vehicles, ships and aircraft serve as increasingly sophisticated weapons and...
This white paper describes a multi-phase approach for avionics development that addresses a growing need for rapid prototyping, requirements capture and risk reduction in modern avionics developments.
This white paper examines the ground-breaking chip, the Intel Xeon D processor, and explores some of the visionary defense applications that will now become practical.
Today’s challenge of providing safety certifiable mission-critical systems with higher complexity at a reasonable price point has led integrators away from the costly, custom-built systems of the past in favor of modern COTS modules.
Parallels can be drawn with the FMC format: it’s a mix and match format, but creating a successful overall solution requires selection of the right pieces, knowing their details and how to put them together.
This white paper examines embedded defense networking requirements and solutions currently available on the market today.
This white paper discusses some of the drivers and benefits of deploying an open, scalable vetronics system architecture as envisioned by the VICTORY and GVA initiatives, and how modern COTS technologies enable network-enabled switching, shared processing, and assured military position...
This white paper discusses how a novel approach to radiation mitigation allows the use of COTS electronics equipment in a radiation environment, thereby lowering the cost involved in the design, certification, manufacture and deployment of such a system.
