The Future of High-Performance Embedded Computing
Much of the innovation in high-performance embedded computing starts with microprocessors.
Delivering High-Voltage Power to Ground Vehicle Systems
The ability to provide high-voltage power on ground vehicle platforms is a rapidly growing requirement as high peak power is often needed to accelerate a high-inertia load.
How Safety and Security are Evolving in the Digital Age
The technological shifts that are redefining defense also have the potential to transform daily life. Dominic Perez, chief technology officer at Curtiss-Wright, discusses the innovations of tomorrow (and the threats to safety and security).
Secure Mesh Networking Comes to Mobile Command Posts
NATO armed forces have called for more mobility, maneuverability, interoperability, and reduced setup time for tactical command posts.
Design Challenges for Naval Equipment Enclosures
New and efficient approaches to cabinet and console design, fabrication, integration, and qualification are enabling prime defense contractors to quickly equip the U.S. Navy with better electronics technology and enclosures while increasing return on investment.
AI/ML-Based Attack Signal Intelligence at the Tactical Edge
Advances in generative artificial intelligence (AI) are enabling adversaries to build new attacks faster and evade signature-based threat detection with ease.
Guest Blog: From Evangelism to Mandate: The Rise of MOSA
For many COTS [commercial off-the-shelf] vendors and VITA members, the Tri-Service Memo issued in January 2019 by the secretaries of the Army, Navy, and Air Force was the highest validation of several decades of their combined efforts.
The Evolution of Real-Time Data-Sharing in Naval Warfare
Naval warfare demands seamless, real-time data sharing across multiple platforms, from aircraft to surface ships to submarines.
100-Gigabit Ethernet Done Right
COTS suppliers have focused on increasing connectivity speeds within and between systems for decades, following the introduction of the VPX standard.
Tactical Decision-Making Demands Increasing Speeds and Volume of Data Processing
For defense applications, responsiveness, accuracy, and precision have never been more critical to mission success.
A Tour of VITA AFT Cooling Standards in 2023
For critical and intelligent deployed embedded modules, air-flow-through (AFT) cooling describes an approach that brings the coolant much closer to heat-generating electronics than standard conduction-cooled approaches.
Engineers adopt different approaches to ensure data quality in aerospace testing. They employ best practice techniques to data acquisition and management to keep data accurate and results reliable.
