Power distribution from the ground up

Mariana Iriarte, Technology Editor

Military ground vehicles today are carrying more complicated payloads that often include command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems. No longer only used for transportation, these platforms have become mobile command centers - like the U.S. Army's Joint Tactical Light Vehicle (JLTV) - meaning power management no longer can be an afterthought or an add-on, but a key consideration at the beginning of the design process.

Special Report
Backup PNT methods are essential for GPS-denied environments

Sally Cole Senior Editor

Backup methods of position, navigation, and timing (PNT) are essential for warfighters operating within GPS-denied environments. Warfighters rely on the U.S. NAVSTAR global positioning system (GPS) and global navigation satellite system (GNSS) for military operations, but are encountering an intense escalation of jamming and spoofing attacks.

Software-defined radio enables enhanced military communications

Stephanie Chiao, Per Vices Corporation

Software-defined radio (SDR) is not a new technology for the military, having been developed for defense communications. However, it has evolved beyond the Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) program, which is now obsolete. Although JTRS is no longer an active program, some variations of the system have survived, like the Rifleman Radio, MIDS J, and the HMS Manpack.

Business barometer: 2017 trend predictions

Jerry Gipper Editorial Director

Trend predictions during an election year are extremely challenging, especially in the circus election that is going on in the United States right now. By the time you read this, it will all be over, and there is a good chance that I may be headed to Australia for a few years! Here goes my attempt to share a few highlights for what developments I expect to unfold in the market next year.

Technology-integration trends in avionic displays

John Rodwig, Industrial Electronic Engineers Inc. (IEE)

As avionics technology advances, display manufacturers are challenged to design displays that are more functional for the operator yet cost-effective for the customer. New software and hardware advancements are leading the way, while system upgrades and standardization of components create ongoing cost efficiencies for the future.

Enabling Mounted Assured PNT with one COTS-based box

Mike Southworth Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions

Today's warfighter depends on GPS signals to acquire accurate position, navigation, and timing (PNT) data. There's a potential downside to dependence on traditional GPS, however: In some terrains, such as dense foliage or urban canyons, GPS signals can become degraded. GPS receivers can also come under attack from adversaries through jamming or spoofing. Given how critical GPS capabilities are for military services, next-generation PNT technologies are emerging to address vulnerabilities from emerging threats and field…

RF transceivers provide breakthrough SWaP solutions for defense and aerospace applications

David Brown Analog Devices, Inc. and Wyatt Taylor Analog Devices, Inc.

Integrating more software control and cognitive abilities to military radios demands a more frequency- and bandwidth-flexible radio frequency (RF) design. To achieve this goal, static filters need to be removed and replaced with tunable filters. Similarly, the concept of a common platform would allow for shorter development times, reduced manufacturing costs, and provide greater interoperability between systems. The common platform demands that the RF system be capable of providing full performance for applications that traditionally…

Implementing FACE-conformant avionics systems

Wayne McGee, Creative Electronics Systems (CES) and Stephen Simi Tucson Embedded Systems

The R2C2 software implements a communications control application programming interface (API) that provides access to the capabilities of the radio devices. The API is a set of software methods that standardize control of the radios from the host platform and replaces the platform-specific protocols of individual radios with a single abstracted software interface mechanism. Next up Open systems applications and architectures show great promise in lowering the cost and time necessary to…
