SWaP: The RF solution that can mean the difference between flying high and being grounded - Story

October 07, 2015
Defense and commercial airborne platforms differ in many ways: Defense platforms focus on multifunction systems and power management for mission-critical functions such as electronic warfare, fire control, radar, etc., while commercial aircraft place high emphasis on safety and system redundancy. One area of common concern for both is maximizing payload efficiency. Every ounce of weight, cubic centimeter of space, and milliwatt hour of power is carefully planned, as both focus on balancing size, weight and power (SWaP). Advances in RF technology can provide a leapfrog advantage for manned and unmanned aircraft in both markets.
