Curtiss-Wright boosts data acquisition and flight test instrumentation with Teletronics Technology Corporation acquisition
It's not enough to have rugged data storage with massive capacities and solid-state storage technology; today they also must offer multi-level data encryption, quick erase, and anti-tamper features. John Keller in Military & Aerospace Electronics.
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial IoT (IIoT) is not the only reason for increased demand for safety- and security-related solutions.
New technologies will enable the warfighter to see more emitters simultaneously and geolocate those threats in near-real time without compromising the ability to continue scanning the electromagnetic spectrum for other targets.
To ensure that ground combat vehicles have the most reliable and accurate PNT data, the U.S. Army is advancing a Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) approach that enables warfighters to transition away from the use of less robust legacy GPS devices.
