  • March 31, 2011 -- Stand-alone I/O boards are disappearing as mezzanine I/O cards take control of data-acquisition applications
    Product Intelligence -- The era of the widespread stand-alone input/output (I/O) board apparently is coming to an end, embedded computing industry experts say, as systems designers increasingly rely on mezzanine boards for the vast majority of their applications. At the same time, however, the stand-alone I/O board still has utility for specialized applications, such as placing many different I/O schemes on a single board, or for handling blazingly fast, specialized I/O for the most demanding applications, such as radar processing, electronic warfare, and signals intelligence, experts say.   
  • April 30, 2011 -- Signal processing approaches for electronic warfare and signals intelligence spark debate
    Special report -- Preferences among systems are divided for EW and SIGINT systems on the most efficient ways to implement digital signal processing. The battle lines are drawn among field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs,) general-purpose processors (GPPs), and the new breed of graphics processing units (GPUs). The challenge of signal processing for electronic warfare and signals intelligence applications revolves around the sequence of events that happen in transforming raw RF signals at an antenna into useful information for fighting forces to use as they take some sort of action. To be effective, this sequence must be fast and efficient. 
  • May 1, 2011 -- Reliable military and aerospace communications depend on advanced military antenna technologies
    Technology focus, 1 May 2011. For network-centric operations to succeed on today’s digital battlefield, efficient, reliable, and real-time communications are crucial to deliver the right information to the right person at the right time. The antenna is one of the most important, if not often overlooked, component of aerospace and defense systems. Military applications combine the need for high performance and reliability with some of the hardest environmental conditions. 
  • May 2, 2011 -- Critical needs for enhanced situational awareness drive avionics display development
    Product Intelligence, 2 May 2011. Avionics display designers say the increased situational awareness data available to pilots is driving avionics display configurations while avionics designers are calling for smaller display designs in military and commercial avionics retrofit programs. Massive amounts of information available in the cockpit also have an influence on display design. Military users want more processing capability so they can stream live video in on the displays and display FLIR imaging, and have processing capability to meet future requirements.
  • May 17, 2011 -- Radiation-hardened electronics designers face increasing difficulty with shrinking chip geometries
    Technology Focus, 17 May 2011. Integrated circuits continue to shrink in size and weight to enhance performance, yet today's tiny chip geometries can make life difficult for IC designers and systems integrators who must design systems to operate in the presence of naturally ocurring or man-made radiation. Some chip manufacturers are giving up levels of radiation hardness to enhance performance benefits in benign non-radiation applications.

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.
