  • 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.
  • January 14, 2011 -- Today's FPGA trends in aerospace and defense applications involve security, tools, and specialization
    Product intelligence -- Information security, advanced FPGA programming tools, and increasing specialization for an ever-broadening number of potential applications are primary trends in today's field-programmable gate array (FPGA) technology for aerospace and defense.   
  • February 11, 2011 -- Shipboard electronics builders are seeing modest good news as Navy shipbuilding programs stay on track
    Special report -- U.S. Navy projects to build a variety of surface warships are on track, despite several different cutbacks, which is good news for suppliers and integrators of shipboard electronics who are looking forward to a wealth of new projects, systems upgrades, and technology insertion.  
  • 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.
  • 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.
