    • New Aegis radar boosts range with COTS
      Modern warfare relies on the precision strike, and the ability to plant small bands of special forces deep in foreign territory. That means Navy ships must cruise dangerously close to shore, within range of the latest missiles.
    • Navy chooses VistaScape for automated security software
      A naval base covers a huge area, encompassing bustling ports and harbors full of people. That makes it very hard to guard against intruders.
    • DOD information network expands to support anti-terrorism activities
      Leaders in the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) are extending the Pentagon's global communications system horizontally to support anti-terrorist activities in an attempt to achieve interoperability with civilian agencies, says Lt. Gen. Harry Raduege Jr., director of the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) in Arlington, Va.

      • Jetliner engine maintenance moves to electronic monitoring
        The commercial airline engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) market has been subject to several different tidal waves of change in recent years that have initiated a major restructuring in the who and how of MRO provision.

      • Incremental approach to optoelectronics
        The merits of optoelectronics — the technology that combines the best features of electronics and photonics — have been relatively obvious since the development of lasers in the 1960s and optical fiber waveguides in the 1970s:
    • Viewpoint

      • Where does the aerospace DSP fit in?
        Is the modern aerospace digital signal processor (DSP) a stand-alone solution with both CPU and DSP capability? Is it on the verge of getting sucked into the mainstream microprocessor's silicon?

      • All-electric ships
        Warship designers until now have used hydraulics, pressurized air, and steam to move large masses, such as aircraft catapults, aircraft elevators, and ship propulsion systems, yet new advances in high-power electronic devices may lead to all-electric power aboard surface vessels.
    • Technology Focus

      • The new horizon of optical computing
        Modern business and warfare technologies demand vast flows of data, which pushes classic electrical circuits to their physical limits. Computer designers increasingly look to optics as the answer.
