Editor's Perspective
Military market focused on sustainment and keeping ahead of obsolescence

John McHale, Editorial Director

As we do in every September issue, we give an overview on the defense market from the perspective of industry analysts. We also take a closer look at how the military electronics community manages the obsolescence headaches that come with using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology. Never have these two subjects gone more hand-in-hand than they [...]

Discrete vs distributed: Transforming military training and simulation systems

Mike Pape Dedicated Computing

Advances such as augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) are redefining expectations of quality and performance in increasingly diverse military training scenarios. These improvements also demonstrate the need for a philosophical change in system design strategy as system engineers prepare for the next generation of "training as a service." Developers must move away from discrete systems and toward more distributed training environments that are capable of delivering point-of-need training via a single synthetic training environment.

Technology insertion: Balancing performance and stability

Charlotte Adams Abaco Systems

Embedded computing systems have benefited enormously from the flood of innovation in the electronics industry: Military programs over the years have enjoyed ever faster processors, smaller form factors, and steadily declining prices per unit of performance. At the same time, military programs have requirements, which fly in the face of commercial market trends. These programs’ lives are measured in decades rather than months. A mission computer or fire-control computer procured 20 years ago…

Software-defined radio: To infinity and beyond

Manuel Uhm Ettus Research - A National Instruments company

It's hard to believe that the term "software-defined radio" (SDR) has been around for approximately 30 years. That's a long time in the technology world, but SDR is still a common topic of discussion and carries more than its share of misconceptions. The definition of SDR - per the Wireless Innovation Forum (formerly the SDR Forum) - is "a radio in which some or all of the physical-layer functions are software-defined." The term is really…

Battling obsolescence in military systems from Earth to space

Michael Newman Cobham Semiconductor Solutions and Paul Armijo Cobham Semiconductor Solutions

The military no longer drives innovation in electronics, so it must depend on commercial technologies for new capability. However, commercial technology has a dark side - obsolescence. Problems created by obsolete, unreliable, unmaintainable, underperforming, or incapable electronics hardware and software can be resolved via development of advanced technology insertions and applications that help meet Department of Defense (DoD) requirements for quick-reaction capabilities. This response will enable the warfighter to continue to have improved operational readiness,…
