  • July 15, 2011 -- Freescale QorIQ AMP microprocessor offers alternative for low-power high-performance embedded computing
    Guest viewpoint 15 July 2011. AltiVec technology from Freescale Semiconductor Inc. in Austin, Texas, expands the capabilities of microprocessors built on Power Architecture technology by providing general-purpose processing, data processing, and digital signal processing (DSP) on one chip.  
  • August 2, 2011 -- Trends in flight-line test gear include smaller equipment, software-defined tasks, and generic test sets
    Product Intelligence -- Today's flight-line test equipment for commercial and military aircraft is becoming smaller, lighter, and more powerful to accomplish increasing amounts of testing at the aircraft, rather than at the depot, as well as increasing its use of software-defined functionality to achieve a growing number of test jobs with one piece of equipment.Flight-line test equipment today, which tests for potential aircraft system faults such as data bus errors, misaligned sensors, and data corruption, also sees increasing use of modular commercial off-the-shelf equipment, which ultimately could help test personnel share equipment, ease personnel training requirements, and enable test experts to move quickly to different aircraft without much retraining.
  • August 5, 2011 -- NextGen air traffic control avionics are moving from concept to cockpit
    Special report -- Air traffic management (ATM) in air traffic cockpits will have a new look by the end of this decade as airspace systems move from radar based air traffic control (ATC) to satellite-based ATM technology, which will give air traffic controllers and aircraft pilots increasingly precise positioning in relation to other aircraft thereby improving efficiency and safety in the air and on the ground. The key initiatives behind the move to satellite-based navigation are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and Europe’s Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR).
  • August 10, 2011 -- High-performance computing: it's got to be rugged
    Guest viewpoint, 10 Aug. 2011. Courtney Howard's recent article entitled "Harnessing high-performance computing that ran in the July 2011 issue of Military & Aerospace Electronics was further proof that, for developers of embedded applications for military and aerospace applications, high performance computing (HPC) is a hot topic. That's no surprise: military and aerospace applications have long been voracious devourers of as much computing capability as they can find. HPC in the commercial world is already well established, and the technology is evolving to extract maximum advantage from many-core and multicore processors as well as multi-processor blades in applications where a high degree of potential parallelism exists.
  • 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.

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.
