Understanding GCIA: A Paradigm Shift for Establishing an Overall Ground-combat Vehicle Architecture
The U.S. Army has long pursued a standardized infrastructure and architecture for ground-combat vehicle hardware and networking.
OEMs Target Cleaner, Greener Cabin Air Conditioning
A new generation of cabin air conditioning systems is emerging, prompted by a focus on reliability, air quality and sustainability.
The Next Generation of Open-systems Embedded Computing Standards
The SOSA technical standard for embedded computing hardware and software is beginning to provide tangible benefits for early adopters.
Rugged Computers Take on the Shock and the Heat
Designers of rugged embedded computing systems, laptop computers, and tablet computers balance the need to operate in harsh conditions, as well as meet growing requirements for open-systems standards.
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.
Understanding the Complexity of Turret Systems
From the outside, the turret system on a ground vehicle may appear a straightforward mechanism.
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.
