Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and virtual reality are becoming essential parts of today’s military simulation and mission rehearsal to keep warfighters on the cutting edge.
SOSA, HOST, MOSA, VITA, and a host of other new and emerging open-systems industry standards are coming to bear on the most performance-demanding aerospace and defense applications.
Since its introduction in 2014, the National Security Agency Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program has proven very effective in lowering the cost and speeding the accessibility of encryption for critical data-at-rest (DAR).
Size, weight, power consumption, and cooling technologies today block quantum computing from the embedded world, but new generations should yield advances in artificial intelligence and computer security.
High-performance embedded computing is reaping the benefits of open-systems standards, new FPGA architectures, and artificial intelligence for never-before-seen edge computing performance.
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.
