Avionics technicians make use of oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, and other high-performance test and measurement instruments to ensure that sensitive RF and microwave systems are working properly.
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.
An optimized investment on a leading program for the greater good of the warfighting enterprise will enable the technology breakout and multidomain convergence essential to increasing warfighter and weapon-system effectiveness for the collective national defense.
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)...
Today’s embedded-system designers have a great variety of processor types to select from, with FPGAs and GPUs adding their own various advantages and disadvantages for consideration in contrast to the more familiar CPUs.
In recent years, Curtiss-Wright’s IADS software team has met with multiple engineering groups throughout the flight test community to better understand the tools they use in a typical post-test environment
Single-core processing remains stubbornly perched atop the avionics world because of the complexities involved with MCP certification.
Enabling technologies for electronics and embedded computing thermal management are expanding, as systems designers demand higher performance, standards-based cooling, and reduced size and weight.
A panel on CMOSS at a U.S. Army Technical Exchange Meeting held earlier this year provided details on new developments underway and areas in which the Army is looking to industry for help in taking the suite of standards from prototype to deployment.
Security-critical applications, such as cross-domain solutions (CDS), require a secure, trusted platform on which to execute, spanning software, firmware, and hardware. The lowest layer that the application interacts with directly is a trusted operating system (OS).
