  • May 24, 2011 -- Creeping system complexity drives growing use of EDA tools for aerospace and defense electronics
    Product intelligence -- The aerospace and defense industry uses electronic design automation (EDA) tools pervasively to design electronic components, explains Todd Cutler, senior manager of planning, marketing, and services at Agilent EEsof EDA in Santa Clara, Calif.  
  • May 27, 2011 -- Tactical laser weapons technology demonstrates its readiness for deployment
    Special report -- The latest generations of laser weapons research seek to move beyond gigantic platforms like the Boeing 747 jumbo jet, and create deployable weapons that could be reliably mounted to small ships, fighter aircraft, armored combat vehicles, and even unmanned vehicles. The most important aspects of these future generations of laser weapons are size, weight, and power. They must be sufficiently small and efficient enough to fit on relatively small vehicles, while the most advanced laser weapon prototypes today must be housed on platforms as large as a modified Boeing 747.
  • July 1, 2011 -- High-performance computing benefits signal- and data processing in aerospace and defense applications
    Technology Focus, 1 July 2011. High-performance computing (HPC) is well suited, and steadily being adopted, for myriad defense and aerospace applications. HPC currently is playing a role in: training and simulation; on-board systems for navigation, defense, and attack; and command, control, communications, intelligence, computers, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR), explains Bill Mannel, vice president of product marketing of SGI in Fremont, Calif.
  • July 5, 2011 -- Mathematical proof techniques, automated requirements tracing lead trends in software verification tools
    Product intelligence -- Complex application software increasingly is finding its way into mission- and life-critical applications like medical equipment, surveillance and reconnaissance systems, and even high-end passenger cars. Despite the importance of this software, however, much of today's sophisticated code is developed in somewhat of a haphazard manner.  
  • July 6, 2011 -- COTS and open standards drive unmanned vehicle control station architectures
    Special report, 6 July 2011. Designers of control stations for unmanned vehicles primarily use commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) embedded products, but there has never been a common architecture developed for all unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) ground control stations. However, U.S. military planners are pushing toward a common control segment architecture that requires all UAV control stations to work with one set of standards and hardware and software architecture to save costs.

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.
