    • Commercial cell phones could prove catastrophic in time of war
      One of the guiding principles of military acquisition in recent years has been to draw as heavily as possible on technology designed and developed by the commercial world, and adapt it to military applications. Sometimes, however, something develops outside the Pentagon that appears to get overlooked in its potential influence on military operations.
    • Ramix Ethernet devices replace FDDI on Navy programs
      Navy officials want to replace FDDI devices because many suppliers have "end of lifed their products" and finding new FDDI products can be quite costly, says Saeed Karamooz, president and chief executive officer of Ramix.
    • DHS set to identify 40 crucial homeland-security technologies
      Although this is not the first time government security planners have asked for help — some companies are still waiting for a response after suggesting ways the country could better defend itself after the 9/11 attacks — this time will be different, insists Alfonso Martinez-Fonts, special assistant to the U.S. secretary of homeland security for the private sector.
    • Electrorack builds tough enclosures for Navy's newest amphibious assault ship
      The U.S. Navy's San Antonio-class (LPD 17) amphibious transport dock is the "21st century expeditionary warship," designed to shatter assumptions about the kinds of vessels that carry U.S. Marines into battle.
    • A look at the future of stacked die integrated circuits
      The terms "stacked die" and "stacked chips" have become very lively buzzwords within the electronics community — so much so that the notoriety of these concepts can obscure the reality.
    • North Atlantic offers customizable boards with mix-and-match modules
      Board designers at the Apex Signal Division of North Atlantic Industries in Bohemia, N.Y., are taking a "restaurant menu" approach to enable systems designers to customize VME and CompactPCI boards with a wide variety of off-the-shelf modules.
    • All-optical computing still remains only a promise for the future
      The question of whether the future may see an all-optical or photonic computing environment elicits a wide — and often negative — response, as commercial and military systems designers move to incorporate fiber optic networks into current and next-generation systems.
    • In Brief
      Leaders of Astro-Med Inc. of West Warwick, R.I., are offering an 8-port Ethernet switch that exceeds military standard requirements for shock, vibration, and temperature extremes.
    • Military & Aerospace Electronics Show set for April 23 and 24
      There is still time to register for the Military & Aerospace Electronics Show East 2003, which will be April 23 and 24 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore.

      • Enduring opportunities for mature technologies
        While the avionics industry is almost compulsive about the pivotal role of leading-edge technologies, there remain market niches where traditional technologies are thriving — and returning substantial profits to the participants.
    • Letters to the Editor

      • Crisis overstated
        The article entitled Crisis!! in the February issue of Military & Aerospace Electronics necessitates a response on my part.

      • The blending
        Communication should not be a constraint" is an age-old premise in military operations, but one that is taking on special meaning in the Bush Administration's push to transform military communications — especially space-based communications as they relate to the overall restructuring of U.S. forces.
    • Technology Focus

      • Choices, choices, choices
        Much like a presidential primary for the party that is out of office, the race to win industrywide acceptance for a switched-interconnect standard has many candidates with different personalities and different goals. And like candidates in an election many of the proposed interconnects are running more on promise than product.
