DAS or NAS? Making the Right Data-Storage Decision for Deployed Systems
For many years, military-system designers relied solely on direct attached storage (DAS) devices when they needed to deploy data storage on military platforms.
MOSA and JADC2 Driving Innovation in Military Vetronics Applications
Vetronics systems today are increasingly focused on C4ISR [command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance], interoperability with other battlefield elements, and the capability to be optionally unmanned if necessary.
Unified Network Communications Management: The Next Step to Realizing MOSA
Because MOSA (Modular Open Systems Approach) is an approach and not itself a standard, solutions that support this vision can be achieved through many different means as long as interfaces and communications protocols are based on open standards.
Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA), Unmanned Vehicles, and Trusted Computing
System integrators need to ensure that the sensor systems and the critical data they collect and store are protected from falling into the wrong hands.
MOSA on the March
This year's Tri-Services Open Architecture Interoperability Demonstration (TSOA-ID) saw a significant increase in participants and the number of live demonstrations showing working systems that embrace the key open standards that instantiate MOSA.
Northrop Grumman Brings Real-time Virtualization to Embedded Avionics Under New Partnership
A new partnership between Northrop Grumman and Curtiss Wright targets the virtualization of obsolete military avionics systems.
Rightsizing Processor Performance for Today’s DSP Applications
For rugged DSP (digital signal processing) processor cards, it is important to have a balance between processor performance, memory bandwidth, I/O bandwidth, and ruggedization.
Ruggedization, Space Constraints an Ongoing Challenge for Military Data-at-rest
Trying to strike a balance between power and security with data-at-rest in the field – and doing it all within a highly constrained space in an environment with dirt and moisture that threatens to damage expensive equipment – is a tall order indeed.
Wireless Communications at the Tactical Edge
Warfighters on the battlefield have relied on wireless communications for more than 80 years, dating back to the first Motorola ‘manpack’ radio used by the Army Signal Corps in the 1940s.
Sensing Trouble: How CMS are Lifting the Fog of War
New technologies such as virtualisation, sensor improvements and data fusion are enhancing the effect of CMS on modern fleets, allowing greater range and faster transfer of critical information.
Bringing Security to Legacy Systems for Modern Missions
Upgraded systems require security to be built-in to protect sensitive mission information and maintain warfighter technology advantage.
