Intel Corp. in Santa Clara, Calif., has unveiled its 3rd Generation Intel Core processor, which promises performance increases in processing speed, graphics capability, and data throughput
Embedded computing experts at General Micro Systems (GMS) Inc. say they have developed vetronics computing technology for military combat vehicles that has true high-capacity server performance in a rugged, conduction-cooled package.
U.S. Army helicopter aviation experts are moving ahead with a program to fit special infrared sensors aboard the Boeing AH-64D Apache attack helicopter that detect and pinpoint enemy ground fire and quickly train the Apache's weapons on sources of the hostile fire.
U.S. Army vetronics researchers are canvassing industry to see which companies might be able to provide glasses-free 3D (autostereoscopic) display technology, and to determine if the time is right for a formal solicitation to acquire the technology for future armored combat vehicles or unmanned vehicle control stations.
Navigation and guidance experts at the DARPA are trying to reduce the military's reliance on GPS satellite guidance for advanced munitions, mid- and long-range missiles, and other weapons by creating a navigation-system-on-a-chip that combines traditional and atomic inertial guidance technology.
Aerospace and defense firms advance the state of the art in acquiring, processing, and exploiting crucial still imagery and full-motion video.
Radio communications experts and antenna manufacturers wrestle with the sometimes-conflicting requirements of size, efficiency, bandwidth, and cost as they design the voice and data battlefield communications systems of the future.
Rugged displays are everywhere on and above the battlefield today. Whether systems designers are looking for a display in a cockpit, for a ground vehicle, or for a rugged tablet, there are many different factors to consider for what these displays need to do.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) needed expertise in helmet-mounted microdisplay technology to develop an embedded head-up display to increase personal situational awareness for emergency responders.
U.S. Navy aircraft specialists needed common fiber-optic test kits for Navy aviation systems.
U.S. Air Force and Navy combat aircraft pilots operating high-performance aircraft at night needed helmet-mounted military night-vision cueing and display systems.
U.S. Air Force researchers are asking industry to develop and demonstrate large, low-noise, high-uniformity, medium-wave infrared (MWIR) detector arrays for the next generation of space-based launch detection aboard satellites similar to those that are part of the Defense Support Program (DSP) and Space-Based Infrared System (SBIRS) constellations of reconnaissance satellites.
U.S. Air Force aviation experts needed helmet-mounted targeting systems for the U.S. Navy, as well as for air forces in Pakistan, Belgium, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, and Finland.
U.S. Army officials needed micro unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) to equip four-to-six-soldier fire teams with video reconnaissance and situational awareness during route- and compound-clearing operations.
U.S. Army and Marine Corps communications experts needed ground-mobile antennas for the Single Channel Ground and Airborne Radio System (SINCGARS).
U.S. Navy combat aviation experts needed a series of airborne antennas for the AN/ALQ-99 low-band transmitter system aboard the Boeing EA-18G Growler and Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler carrier-based electronic warfare jets.
L-3 Communications' Warrior Systems-Insight Technology unit won a $50 million contract for Binocular Night Vision Devices (BNVD) for use by the U.S. Special Operations Command.
