With the decline in defense spending over the last decade, the average age of military systems has increased amid budget constraints. In today’s aerospace and defense industry, application stability and predictability are essential for deployed mission-critical systems, but while program lifecycles continue to grow longer the longevity of electronic components used to build COTS cards has become increasingly shorter. This means the business and financial risks of a non-proactive stance are growing.
Lowering program risk is more important than ever.
Choosing a partner that will work with you to proactively manage DMS challenges is the most important piece to a successful longevity strategy. It allows you to keep a finger on the pulse of your program while choosing technology solutions with longevity potential. By doing so, you reduce the risks associated with component obsolescence, increase program stability and mitigate financial risk.
