Is Fiber Optic Networking Technology More Secure Than Copper?
Because optical connections transmit data using light, they don’t radiate signals that can be intercepted. Security for traditional copper Ethernet connections can now be significantly enhanced, however, thanks to end-to-end encryption standards.
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.
Radiation Tolerance Meets Commercial Space
The wave of commercially developed communications and remote-sensing satellites seeks to balance costs, capability, size, weight, and power consumption in the latest new space designs.
Contested Space, Small Sats, and the Gamble on COTS in Space
Contested space, where nations compete for military dominance outside Earth’s atmosphere, is driving many military space platforms, but commercial space and small satellites continue to change the way the military suppliers of space electronics approach radiation-hardened component design from testing to deployment.
Curtiss-Wright Introduces Embedded Industry’s Smallest, Lightest Rugged Secure Cisco IP Router
Parvus DuraMAR 6300 is the smallest, most rugged Cisco GbE router designed for use in deployed embedded military and aerospace applications.
Robotic Combat Vehicles: Putting the Brains Behind the Brawn
A new era of Robotic Combat Vehicles (RCV) is about to begin. The U.S. Army is getting ready to evaluate competing candidates to meet requirements for light and medium versions of a new class of modular unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).
The Power of Power Over Ethernet
One enabler for SWaP optimization is Power Over Ethernet (PoE), which simplifies cabling and power needs for networked cameras, phones, and other IP devices.
The Shrinking World of Small-Form-Factor Embedded Computing
Industry experts say open standards are helping drive development in small-form-factor battlefield and aerospace hardware like system-on-chip and single-board computers.
Bringing the Advantages of PoE to Defense Applications
Embedded military systems that implement Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices, which mix Ethernet data and electric power over a single cable, can reap significant SWaP benefits.
Designers of Small Rugged Computers for the Battlefield Balance Size, Performance, and Cooling
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components are being embraced so the technology can be serviced at the base instead of waiting for specialized parts or sending the system back state-side.
