Open Architecture Initiatives Bolster Unmanned Sensors and Systems
The advent of unmanned systems reflects a huge aspect of warfare – that of protecting the warfighter – through the development of platforms that can be operated by humans from a distance, keeping them out of harm’s way.
The Ever-Shrinking World of Small-Form-Factor Embedded Computing
New computer boards offer high performance, thermal management, and peripherals in a smaller size than 3U VPX, with artificial intelligence (AI) and GPGPU processing.
New 10 GbE Switch Module Delivers 10x Performance Increase for Curtiss-Wright’s PacStar Modular Data Center
New PacStar 448 10 GigE Switch delivers a 10x transmission speed boost to support hyper-converged infrastructure, cloud replication, and high-speed network-based tactical communications at the edge of the battlefield.
Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA): Enabling the Next Generation of Flexible and Adaptable Radar Systems
In order to keep up with the continued acceleration of new technology and to be able to protect the warfighter from the latest threats, it is essential that we can turn our deployed platforms into adaptable entities that can evolve over time and are not static. The SOSA [Sensor Open Systems Architecture] Technical Standard is the next major step in realizing this goal.
What 5G Means to the Military
5G wireless communications is expected to move voice, video, text, and image data with bandwidth as fast as 300 GHz to create data on demand for the battlefield.
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.

Is Fiber Optic Networking Technology More Secure Than Copper?
Fiber optic cabling is commonly perceived as a solid choice for mitigating network security concerns. We look at Fiber Optic vs Copper.
Leveraging Secure Commercial Routing Technology to Protect Data-in-Motion
Protecting a military platform’s secret data-in-motion as it’s routed over an Ethernet-based IP network has become significantly easier, more affordable, and faster to deploy in recent years, thanks to U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) support of commercial encryption technologies.
