Special Report
Vetronics designers focus on reduced SWaP-C and enhanced C4ISR
By Sally Cole, Senior Editor
Government cutbacks may be slowing vetronics upgrades, but the defense industry is still focusing on initiatives to reduce size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), as well as investing in command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) capabilities.

Driving commonality in test and measurement systems
By John McHale, Editorial Director
Defense electronics integrators faced with reduced funding want test and measurement systems that can be used across multiple platforms instead of having one test set for every weapon, radio, etc. This push toward commonality and standardization is driven by today's budget-constrained environment in the Department of Defense (DoD).
Rising data rates, hardware upgrades drive military test requirements
By David Maliniak, Teledyne LeCroy
Higher data rates in military embedded systems can be both a boon and a burden: difficult to achieve and even more difficult to diagnose and debug. However, the capabilities of modern test equipment and associated software make it easier to deal with signal-integrity issues, difficult-to-probe hardware, and complex serial-data analysis.
