Unmanned Robots Help Military and Civilian Task Forces to Scout the Terrain and Eliminate Hot Spots

Unleashing new possibilities in harsh environments, Kontron's COM Express® mini module proves to have a small heart with big power for mission-critical situations. The specialists in the successful US television series "The A-Team" were the inspiration when Yosi Wolf and Elad Levy founded their company, Roboteam, in Israel in 2010. Their plan was to develop a specialized task force of unmanned robots in order to support soldiers in the field, and also to simplify the work of governments and civil defense authorities.

Improving Throughput with your Power Supply: Application Hints 1 through 10

Manufacturers continue to be asked to do more with less. Increasing throughput can reduce the amount of equipment used in test and the physical constraints of a manufacturing site. An improved work flow will also reduce inventory costs. Improving throughput starts with using faster power supplies, and is further enabled by a comprehensive set of integrated power supply capabilities specifically targeted to maximize test throughput. 

A Superior Solution for Press-Fit Pin and Receptacle Applications

The press-fit pins and receptacles that we apply to interconnect electronic modules are examples of products whose quality can be critical to the success or failure of a specific application. Electronic circuitry interconnected by press-fit pins and receptacles is so broad in application that their critical role in system performance cannot be given short shrift. Recognizing this, Mill-Max Mfg. has approached the design and manufacture of press-fit pins and receptacles with an uncompromising attention to detail.

The Fast Guide to Protecting COTS Electronics with Conformal Coatings

This whitepaper provides a comprehensive overview of conformal coating, advantages of conformal coating, and applications for conformal coating to enable COTS technology.

As technology continues to advance, COTS are becoming increasingly popular areas of development. When dealing with devices that encounter rugged environments, it is vital that they are properly protected. Conformal coating is one way that manufacturers are giving their devices a higher level of protection, along wth increasing the overall quality of their products.

Classification of objects from video streams

Imagine a world in which brilliant machines "understand" what’s around them – and communicate that understanding to other brilliant machines, making each of them collectively smarter. Today's technology innovations are driving the object classification algorithms of tomorrow's brilliant machines. This paper illustrates how the edge nodes of the network can interact with a variety of real world sensors then apply the "collective learning," such that the experience of an individual machine contributes to the learning of the whole.

The CM1000S28 - 1000 Watts AC to DC Switcher

A vital component of every military electronics system is a power supply. Rugged high-performance power supplies are required in mission critical systems. Our power supply can function effectively in ground mobile, aircraft uninhabited transport, and naval unsheltered environments. In the past few years, customer’s demands of smaller solutions, the need for increased power solutions, and increased reliability have paved the path for tremendous improvements in the military power supply industry.

RR1P Rugged Pluggable Canister RAID Delivers Continuous Data Recording

RR1P removable canister RAID data storage system enables military ISR data to be removed from a plane, ship or ground vehicle in under two minutes. The canister connects to the ¾ ATR chassis with a military grade connector designed for 10,000 insertion cycles. It weighs only 25 pounds including a five pound removable canister with up to 19.2 TB of compact, rugged, high performance mobile RAID data storage.

Overcome the Challenges of Crafting a Customized Computer

Whether they're powering a map-sensor payload for a Global Hawk UAV or a man-pack radio system for a soldier on the move, custom computer solutions have to be small and lightweight. To meet these stringent demands, engineers have created a clever solution – modular embedded computing platforms that allow customers to design their own customized machines.
