  • August 12, 2011 -- Reliability, small size, and fast performance drive rugged military hand-held devices
    Product Intelligence, 12 Aug. 2011. Designers of rugged hand-held device for military systems such as tablets want the features that top every military engineer’s high-performance technology wish lists -- lower size, weight, and power (SWaP), but what they really need is something that can survive and perform consistently in a harsh battlefield environment. 
  • November 28, 2011 -- Military crypto modernization leads to applications like smartphones, tablet computers on the battlefield
    SPECIAL REPORT, 28 Nov. 2011. Embeddable cryptographic processors are enabling a host of new defense communications applications, such as smartphones and tablet computers for tactical use on the front lines, as well as secure tactical Wi Fi, unmanned vehicle control, and real-time targeting. The relentless forward progress of microprocessors, field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), digital signal processors (DSPs), small-form-factor single-board computers, and other advanced embedded computing technology also is making wireless communications safer and more secure.  
  • November 28, 2011 -- Military transition to optical interconnects proceeding at slow-but-sure pace
    PRODUCT INTELLIGENCE, 28 Nov. 2011. As the amount of data being processed grows, so does the speed at which the data needs to be processed. Optical interconnects, which use light rather than electrical signals, are becoming increasingly popular with military systems designers. "They're making a lot of demands today," says John Lee, Vice President of sales and marketing at Timbercon Inc. in Lake Oswego, Ore. "It's growing exponentially." 
  • December 8, 2011 -- Using the h.264 standard might not be the best idea for real-time mission-critical UAV video data feeds
    Guest viewpoint, 8 Dec. 2011. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) must be able to receive and transmit video data. There is generally no substantive visual intelligence at the node, which is the tradeoff of moving to unmanned aircraft. This means transmitted video must be as reliable as direct visual contact. Enter analog video, which transmits TV-quality imagery from the UAV to the ground. Mission accomplished -- right? Yes, if the goal is to send up a few UAVs. The problem involves the spectrum necessary to send and receive standard analog color TV signals.
  • March 30, 2011 -- Military optical computing uses fast optical interconnects for small size, light weight, and RFI immunity
    Technology focus -- Optical components and systems benefit aerospace and defense applications with high speed, low weight, and increased security. The requirement for compact, lightweight, low-power electronics -- exacerbated by the growing demand for greater data throughput and bandwidth -- is driving the use of optical technologies in military and aerospace applications. Optical components and systems are increasingly being investigated, as well as adopted, by aerospace and defense engineers for a wealth of land, sea, air, and space applications.
