Ultrathin materials show “rusty” promise for next-gen electronics

Sally Cole Senior Editor

Move over, silicon: Two semiconductors share an odd “rusty” trait with silicon when it comes to insulating circuitry, but go way beyond to outperform it in other ways that show great promise for next-generation (next-gen) electronics. Electrical engineers at Stanford University are working with two semiconductors – hafnium diselenide (HfSe2) and zirconium diselenide (ZrSe2) – [...]

How low-cost LRUs can support a Condition-Based Maintenance Plus environment

John Rodwig, Industrial Electronic Engineers Inc. (IEE)

A Condition Based Maintenance Plus (CBM+) strategy can help designers in military programs increase reliability and availability, improve maintenance practices, and lower life cycle costs. Low-cost line replaceable units (LRUs) designed for condition monitoring and health assessment can be a large part of a CBM+ integrated strategy.

Zen and the art of HPEC software debugging

Tammy Carter Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions

The age-old debate regarding art versus science: Some engineers take a romantic approach, while others take a more traditional approach. Whether debugging is an art or a science or a combination of both will continue to be debated, but all sides can agree the tools can make all the difference between timely success and riding a metaphorical motorcycle down the road of failure.

Image-processing programming: Hope for non-nerds?

Charlotte Adams Abaco Systems

Today's armored-vehicle and helicopter operators can detect, assess, and act upon threats with the aid of devices such as helmet-mounted displays and heads-up displays. Thanks to image processing, ground-attack vehicle commanders soon will be able to enjoy a 360-degree "window" on their environments, while pilots will obtain true spherical situational awareness around their airplanes.

Component obsolescence is a concern across system development

Doug Patterson Aitech Defense Systems

Component obsolescence is nothing new, and the problem isn't going away. While electronics innovations may move industry forward on one hand, the downside is that some electronics get left in the dust, no matter how widely adopted they may have been at one point.
