Aviation cybersecurity mandates by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are coming in the next two years.
Awareness is mounting regarding the importance of protecting data-at-rest (DAR) on deployed military platforms.
A bewildering array of tactical datalinks are used on today’s battlefield and help is at hand to ensure that information can be moved across an array of disparate protocols.
One enabler for SWaP optimization is Power Over Ethernet (PoE), which simplifies cabling and power needs for networked cameras, phones, and other IP devices.
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.
Take a tour through the various means of cooling rugged computer systems designed for military programs and harsh operating environments.
Like humans, machines learn from experience. They make observations from inputs of images, text, or other data, and then look for patterns. After the machine runs through the mathematical layers, it learns to make better decisions based on the examples it was given.
Today’s supply chain has been set up to address the needs of consumer electronics and not the military. It’s not been designed to address the problem of obsolescence, which is a critical issue for the military.
High-performance embedded computing, improvements in SWaP, and distributing capability over many different aircraft is helping the military fight in the electromagnetic spectrum.
Today’s powerful server-grade microprocessors are pushing systems designers toward ever-faster data throughput, innovative power control and thermal management, industry standards like SOSA, CMOSS, and HOST.
