Power distribution from the ground up

Mariana Iriarte, Associate 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 Corp.

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.

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 Parvus Corporation

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 conditions.

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 have had very different architectures. Future radio platforms are pushing size and power demands to a new extreme.

Implementing FACE-conformant avionics systems

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

The Future Airborne Capability Environment (FACE) is a government/industry/academia initiative started by U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) and the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) in 2010 to create a standard for avionics application development. The goal of FACE is to lower the cost and amount of time necessary to create open systems applications and promote reusable applications across multiple platforms. To facilitate collaboration with industry and academia, The Open Group created the FACE Consortium for the purpose of developing, publishing, and administering conformance to the specification. Besides NAVAIR and Army, to date more than 90 companies and over 1,175 members involved in the avionics sector have joined the…

White Paper: Finding Concurrency Errors with GrammaTech Static Analysis

Staff, GrammaTech

Multithreading adds entirely new classes of potential bugs to those that must be considered by developers. At the same time, the nondeterminism and sheer number of possibilities introduced by thread interleaving make it significantly more difficult to find bugs in multithreaded systems by testing and other traditional methods.
