EO/IR sensors are key tools for military helicopter operators today, providing significant advantages for surveillance and reconnaissance while increasing situational awareness in degraded visual environments. Industry is working to balance technological advances with the need to keep...
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.
The U.S. Government’s auction of flight-test telemetry bands has resulted in crowded frequencies in the remaining spectrum. But the transition to the C-band has been slow. Here’s how tri-band transmitters can help in adopting the new requirements.
Efficient execution is key to real-time mission-critical operating systems software, yet new demands are emerging such as safety critical operations for avionics and other life-critical applications.
The tools used to acquire, store and transmit flight test data – flight test instrumentation (FTI), data acquisition networks and telemetry – are a vital part of the aerospace sector. These tools require a high level of maturity because they must be reliable and accurate.
This collection of articles, originally published by Military & Aerospace Electronics, covers a variety of Trusted Computing topics such as trusted boot, cyber security, quantum computing, cryptography and more, with a specific focus on the defense and aerospace industries.
This article discusses the problem of inefficient maintenance, lack of access to the right data, and how aircraft can be retrofitted with instrumentation to more quickly identify impending failures, rapidly repair them, and minimize aircraft downtime and maintenance time.
Additive manufacturing, also called 3D printing, is having an influence on military logistics, and helps supply personnel get replacement parts where and when they’re needed — even on the front lines.
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.
In the defense industry, AI is on the path to becoming a loyal companion to the warfighter and manufacturers alike. As technology progresses, so does the range of defense capabilities that AI could not only supplement, but eventually manage.
