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.
