Performance increases still needed for full adoption of mobile rugged computing for military use

Mariana Iriarte, Technology Editor

The constant drive forward in commercial technology is also driving military-computing technology to new heights. As this progress occurs, mobile computing is becoming more relevant to the warfighter, while at the same time posing huge challenges for designers and engineers. Even as engineers deal with shrinking size and weight requirements, performance is still a big issue that mobile computing doesn't quite answer for military use.

Radiation testing of CMOS devices required for space use

Ross Bannatyne Vorago Technologies

Radiation testing of semiconductors is time-consuming and expensive. There are limited test facilities available and often a long waiting list to get "beam time." It is, however, an important part of product testing that is required for devices that will be used in high-radiation environments, such as space.

The advantages of netbooting for embedded systems

Paul Davis Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions

As a greater number of intelligent systems are deployed on platforms such as ground vehicles, aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs), it becomes increasingly challenging to ensure that each of the platform's multiple embedded computers has been updated with the latest and correct version of runtime and/or mission software. Unfortunately, the process of installing the required software onto an embedded module or intelligent system can be labor- and cost-intensive.
