WILMINGTON, Mass. A wave of mergers and acquisitions in the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) industry is cresting this year and is creating a "Big Four" of competitors to exploit this technology for optical switching and other leading-edge communications applications.
RALEIGH, N.C. Cetia, a Thomson-CSF company based in Toulon, France, and Matrix have merged to form an international company to be called Cetia that focuses on developing rugged, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) VMEbus single-board computers.
BETHESDA, Md. Sanders, the Nashua, N.H.-based portion of Lockheed Martin Corp., is set to change hands, which experts say will bolster Sanders's prowess as a merchant supplier in high-technology areas such as electronic warfare.
REDONDO BEACH, Calif. ? Engineers at TRW used improved packaging techniques and gallium arsenide technology to design a highly miniaturized radio component that improves the messaging capability of TRW communications satellite payloads, while decreasing size and weight.
PLAINVIEW, N.Y. ? Engineers at Aeroflex Circuit Technology are combating obsolescence with their new ACT15530 CMOS integrated circuit used to implement MIL-STD-1553 and similar Manchester II encoded, time division multiplexed, serial data protocols.
FARNBOROUGH, England Avionics designers for the Boeing version of the future Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) plan to use an open-architecture approach and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components in their effort to field and maintain cutting-edge electronics technology for the new aircraft.
FARNBOROUGH, England Avionics designers at Smiths Industries Aerospace are set to build at least four avionics subsystems for the Lockheed Martin entry in the competition to build the future Joint Strike Fighter (JSF).
There are parallels and contrasts between the ubiquitous Internet and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), which represent an emerging technology that promises to extend microelectronics into new sensing and actuating applications. The scales at this moment are weighted toward the contrasts.
Military and aerospace systems designers increasingly favor field programmable gate arrays over application-specific integrated circuits for two primary reasons: flexibility and greater economies of scale for FPGAs as the devices make their way into commercial electronics
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 ...
Leveraging the power of server-class processors is no longer relegated to the confines of data centers. Through several innovations, Mercury Systems has ruggedized Intel’s server-class chips for deployment. ...
