VITA 75 vs. VPX: Optimizing unmanned vehicle thermal and payload efficiencies - Story

July 31, 2013
The fast pace of UAV/UGV/UUV evolution places an ever-increasing demand on size, weight, and power, while the range of use applications ? from surveillance to air defense to communications relays ? and interest from national security organizations beyond military continue to grow. To accommodate increasing requirements and diminishing budgets, public contractors and private vendors are moving to Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C)-savvy standards-based systems design, such as by utilizing the smaller envelopes of VITA 75 small form factors to replace existing 3U and 6U VPX technologies. This allows the integration of future payload capabilities into the space available in existing mobile platforms.
