NASHUA, N.H., 23 March 2012. Military & Aerospace Electronics will be featuring a webcast on April 4 to discuss the U.S. Army's Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability (VICTORY) standard, which is designed to be incorporated into Army vehicles and move from a bolt-on integration approach towards network-centric, systems-oriented design. The VICTORY standard will be allowing combat vehicle displays, radios, computers and sensors to communicate with one another easily, helping cut back on redundant equipment and increasing their ability to share information.
The VICTORY standards program is part of an overall U.S. military initiative known as network-enabled operations, in which virtually every electronic signal, from targeting information, position reports, known and suspected enemy threats, and similar information can be placed on battlefield networks and shared among U.S. and allied combatants.
The webcast will feature many of the big names in the industry that are designing products using the VICTORY architecture. Those who will be in the discussion are Michael Schneider, Vice President of Army Programs at Themis Computer; David Jedynak, Manager of Advanced Solutions at Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions; and Jay Labhart, Advanced Engineering Manager for GE Intelligent Platforms.
These experts, hosted by Military and Aerospace Electronic's Editor-In-Chief John Keller, will discuss the VICTORY standard and what it means for systems engineers and the future of vetronics architectures.
The webcast will be airing live on April 4, 2012 at 12:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. CDT / 9:00 a.m. PDT / 4:00 p.m. GMT. To register for the webcast, visit the webcast's information page and click "Register."
Anyone who is interested in the VICTORY standard, vetronics, system design or rugged embedded computing should view the webcast live for information directly from some of the best minds in the business.
