J.R. Wilson with Military & Aerospace Electronics discusses how armored combat vehicles are becoming data centers using rugged network routers as the backbone.
Aaron Frank discusses the benefits of Intel's new Broadwell processor to embedded defense applications.
Jason Shields discusses how pre-qualified systems meet the demands of MIL-STD-810, MIL-STD-461 and RTCA/DO-160 military and aviation environmental engineering standards without additional costs to the system integrator.
Steve Edwards discusses the past and present of standards such as VPX's ability to handle the demands of high performance embedded computing applications.
Ultra-fast computing hardware for HPEC is getting easier to come by. But the most efficient path to success means leveraging the wealth of standard APIs and software from the HPC realm.
The growing deployment of single board computers in military systems brings with it a number of engineering challenges.
Mike Southworth discusses the C4ISR/EW [Command, Control, Communication, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance/Electronic Warfare] Interoperability (VICTORY) initiative and its application on JLTV.
Powerful multicore CPUs are increasingly integrating high performance graphics coprocessors on the same die with fast low-latency connections. The parallelism of these coprocessors makes them capable of numeric calculations that rival DSP cores.
John McHale with Military Embedded Systems discusses radiation testing and qualification requirements for defense and space agencies are getting tougher and embracing TOR standards.
As the need for data security increases, the need to support both encrypted data and less sensitive data within the same system is also on the rise.
