Trusted Computing for National Defense
Cyber security enters the realm of zero trust, as military forces seek to safeguard sensitive military technologies from enemy cyber hackers and spoofers.
New Recorders Boost In-Flight Data Capacity
Curtiss-Wright has introduced two new flight recorders that feature next-generation capabilities for modern aircraft.
The Raspberry Pi SWaP-C Revolution: Driving Battlefield IoT
For size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C)-constrained applications, a military-grade Raspberry Pi-based mission computer defines a whole new class of solution for intelligence and connectivity at the tactical edge.
DoD’s MOSA Mandate Drives CMOSS Approach to A-PNT
The U.S. Army’s Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) program was initiated to replace existing GPS receivers and antennas in most of the Army’s ground vehicle variants.
Secure Mesh Wireless Networks Drive Command Post Mobility
For years, the goal of our armed forces has been mobility at the command post, with Army leaders setting the standard to be able to move hourly, with the command post’s network ready, powered up and receiving in five minutes.
Thermal-Management Techniques Take-on the Heat
It's nearly impossible to use power efficiently enough to eliminate waste heat altogether. Enhancing efficiency can help reduce waste heat -- but only to a degree.
Multi-INT and SOSA: A Consideration of Next Steps
One of the key tenets of Multi-INT or multi-modality is that the architecture by its very nature is realizable through the core components of a sensing system which can accommodate more than one mission at the same time.
Reducing SWaP in the Field with a USB-based Hardware Security Module
Digital keys are a core concept in establishing secure networks, one as relevant in a data center application as it is at the edge of the tactical battlefield.
Next-Gen Cockpit Voice Recorders Boost Time, Data Capabilities
A new generation of cockpit voice recorders is emerging on the market, thanks to advances in digital technology in combination with regulatory mandates.
EW and the DoD’s MOSA Mandate
Electronic Warfare (EW) system designers must constantly respond to new threats and come up with appropriate ways to respond.
SOSA and Open Standards for Military Embedded Computing
Embedded computing systems in forward-deployed vehicles that meet SOSA certification will enable easier replacement of components and even upgrades thanks to vendor-agnostic requirements.
The Sensor- and Signal-Processing Challenges of Electronic Warfare
Greater processing power, advanced filtering, and better signal rejection are among the digital signal processing enabling technologies for electronic warfare projects today.
