Implementing a common architecture for military systems - Story

February 08, 2019
They're playing together nicely - the Army, Navy, and Air Force, that is - in their efforts to bring a common architecture to electronic systems across all three services. These efforts are resulting in three main initiatives: the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA); Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR)/Electronic Warfare (EW) Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS); and the Hardware Open Systems Technology (HOST).

Life cycle management, semiconductor re-creation, and mitigating counterfeit parts - Story

November 29, 2018
Obsolescence management continues to be a challenge for military system designers, who are faced with designing for platforms that must last decades but using components that become obsolete in 18 months. In the following Q and A with Daniel Deisz, Director of Design Technology at Rochester Electronics, he discusses how Department of Defense (DoD) planners need to build in life cycle management costs in projects up front, the advantages of authorized re-creation or porting of semiconductor components for extending the life of parts, the importance of testing for aftermarket solutions, and how best to mitigate the spread of counterfeit components in the defense supply chain. Edited excerpts follow.
