Navy spending $1.5 billion to buy another 13 P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft

Navy orders another 13 P-8A maritime patrol jets

PATUXENT RIVER NAS, Md., 28 Aug. 2015. The U.S. Navy is ordering 13 P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol jets from the Boeing Co., as well as long-lead items for another 20 Poseidon aircraft -- under terms of a $1.5 billion contract modification announced late Thursday.

Of these new aircraft, 25 will be for the U.S. Navy and eight will be for the government of Australia. The P-8 is a militarized version of the Boeing 737 single-aisle jetliner hardened for long-range maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) missions.

Metadata Handling in Rugged Embedded Video Compression Systems

In many situations, information is useless without information about the information. That’s where metadata comes in: it can give context and meaning to, for example, captured video. This white paper describes how a recent update to the highly flexible architecture of GE’s ICS-8580 video compression board uniquely provides it with a metadata engine, making it substantially more powerful in its ability to deliver actionable intelligence.

Product Reliability Builds on Robust Interconnect Solutions

Connectors play a critical role in electrical systems of just about any product we can imagine. For designers, advances in connector design, materials, and manufacturing ensure availability of an interconnect solution well matched to each individual application.

Crossing Enemy Lines – The Growing Demand for Submersible Technology

In several recent procurement specifications for submersible equipment, U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has increased the operating depth requirement from the 1 10 meter range, to 20 meters (66 feet) (1). While no specific reasons have been stated – at least not in unclassified sources – it may be reasonably assumed that this is in response to improved technology and wider deployment of underwater intrusion detection systems by our enemies.

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.
