Cybersecurity Update
Developing effective hardware and software COTS security technologies

Steve Edwards, Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions

The armed forces of the United States and its allies around the world rely on critical military technology that is under constant threat. These threats range from the reverse-engineering of systems lost on the battlefield to the accidental introduction of counterfeit components on the factory floor. In response, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) suppliers are more frequently being called upon to help users address rapidly expanding requirements for anti-tamper (AT) and cybersecurity or information assurance (IA) capabilities.

Optical and electrical high-speed communication in HPEC systems

Thierry Wastiaux Interface Concept

Throughout the defense field, demand for high-volume/high-speed data transfer for high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) is growing rapidly. Systems such as software-defined radio (SDR) use advanced, complex waveforms, all of which need fast sampling and generate huge amounts of data to be transferred. Other tools, such as active electronically scaled array (AESA) radar systems, generate huge amounts of data to be processed and transmitted.

Special Report
Counterfeit components: The stakes are rising

Rich Fitzgerald Avnet

One of the greatest risks to the welfare of not only U.S. service members, but all citizens around the world, is the proliferation of counterfeit electronic components into the military and aerospace supply chain. With the growing adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within practically every conceivable market segment, this risk is growing by orders of magnitude. Every person in the component supply chain should be doing their best to put an end to the counterfeit scourge before we find ourselves face to face with a systems failure or breach, driven either by greed or maliciousness, that could cause irreparable harm. All segments in the supply chain of things must take responsibility to eliminate this challenge.

VITA 49 Radio Transport: The new software radio protocol

Rodger Hosking, Pentek, Inc.

Software radio technology has been steadily evolving during the last 25 years from a laboratory curiosity to widespread deployment in virtually every commercial, consumer, government, industrial, and military platform across the entire radio-frequency spectrum. A constant stream of innovations in data-converter technology, DSP devices, system interconnects, processors, software, design tools, and packaging techniques continuously boosts performance levels and reduces the size, weight, cost, and power of software radio systems. This rapid explosion of applications is characterized by ad-hoc, proprietary interfaces between each element of the system. An evolving standard, nicknamed VRT, offers a consistent protocol for these interconnections to improve interoperability, maintainability, and upgradability.
