SAVE this Space: Defining the C5ISR Space for Army Vehicles
To lower the cost and help speed the pace of technology upgrades for C5ISR [command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] systems on Army vehicles, the U.S. Army’s Program Executive Officer (PEO) for Ground Combat Systems (GCS) has issued an Interface Description Document (IDD).
Open Standards Drive Flexibility in Defense System Designs
Backed by broad support from government and industry, the release of SOSA Technical Standard 1.0 promises a new era of open standards-based system integration with flexibility and interoperability as its hallmarks.
The Case for Distributed and Remote Management of Open Standards-Based Tactical Networks for Vehicles
To exploit the potential benefits of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, video analysis, Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality and virtual reality, and other innovative technologies on mobile platforms at the tactical edge, Department of Defense (DoD) communications programs must effectively deploy advanced IT infrastructure, connectivity, and compute resources.
Managing Next-Generation Open Standard Vehicle Electronics Architectures
Newer on-vehicle integrated networks will be composed of heterogeneous networks in the form of software and equipment from multiple commercial vendors.
A Fully Integrated COTS Approach for PNT to Ground Vehicles in GPS-Denied Environments
David Jedynak looks at new deployed approaches for detecting threats to GPS and providing position, navigation, and timing (PNT) information to the warfighter in GPS-denied environments.
Enabling Mounted Assured PNT with one COTS-based box
To ensure that ground combat vehicles have the most reliable and accurate PNT data, the U.S. Army is advancing a Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) approach that enables warfighters to transition away from the use of less robust legacy GPS devices.
M-Code Brings Next-Gen GPS to SWaP-Constrained Ground Vehicles
Mike Southworth discusses the combination of today’s latest COTS hardware and command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) modernization initiatives.
JLTV: The VICTORY Vanguard
We discuss the C4ISR/EW [Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance/Electronic Warfare] Interoperability (VICTORY) initiative and its application on JLTV.
