  • August 25, 2011 -- Rugged VPX board connectors designed to withstand shock and vibration introduced by Hypertronics
    HUDSON, Mass., 25 Aug. 2011. Hypertronics Corp. in Hudson, Mass., is introducing the KVPX ruggedized connector for VITA 46/48 VPX embedded computing applications. The KVPX high-reliability VPX connector links single-board computers, mezzanine board computers, and other board products via the VITA 46/48 VPX high-speed switch fabric networking architecture in aerospace and defense, industrial, marine, space, data transfer, telecommunications, and medical applications. The shielded, high-density, high-speed, modular interconnect system uses the Hypertronics Hypertac contact system, which acts like a bank of tiny Chinese finger traps to hold pins fast inside the connector.
  • August 29, 2011 -- 3U OpenVPX smart power introduced by Curtiss-Wright for military ground vehicles, aircraft, and ships
    SANTA CLARITA, Calif., 29 Aug. 2011. Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems (CWCES) in Santa Clarita, Calif., is introducing a 3U OpenVPX and VPX smart power supply for deployed military applications such as ground vehicles, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters, and shipboard equipment that must operate reliably in harsh environments. The rugged power supply provides as much as 279 Watts of power. The smart power supply has integrated nuclear event detector (NED) and crowbar for radiation-tolerant applications, and a holdup circuitry that meets MIL-STD-704 and MIL-STD-1275 to protect against transients.
  • August 31, 2011 -- Industry recommends rugged mobile computers over average commercial off-the-shelf devices in mission- and safety-critical applications
    SPOKANE, Wa., 31 Aug. 2011. Mission-critical and safety-critical applications—from the digital battlefield to the rigors of space to the aircraft cockpit—require responsive, reliable, and more often than not, rugged computing systems. Yet, military and commercial pilots and avionics maintenance personnel are increasingly adopting commercial off-the-shelf devices, such as Apple’s iPad and iPhone. Many in the aerospace and defense community applaud the adoption of digital, rather than printed, manuals, but express concerns about the reliability, security, and longevity of common COTS handheld computers.
  • September 4, 2011 -- Combined North American orders for circuit boards and flexible circuits drop for seventh straight month
    BANNOCKBURN, Ill., 4 Sept. 2011. North American combined orders and shipments of rigid printed circuit boards and flexible circuits were down in July, compared to the same month one year ago, report officials of IPC -- the Association Connecting Electronics Industries -- in Bannockburn, Ill. Year-over combined orders of circuit boards and flexible circuits have been down for seven straight months. Board and flexible circuit orders in the U.S. and Canada were down 16 percent in July, compared to orders the same month in 2010, while shipments decreased 12.1 percent over the same period. In June combined orders were down 4.2 percent from the same month the previous year, while shipments were up 4.4 percent.

Evolution of the American soldier

The American soldier has come a long way since the beginning of the Republic 237 years ago. While uniforms for early soldiers were based on cost and utility, soldiers' clothing eventually considered ballistic protection, increasing storage space, protection from poison gas and other contaminants.
