Standards-driven innovation: A perspective on SpaceVPX - Story

June 23, 2022

Standards-driven product innovation creates a symbiotic relationship between systems integrators and technology developers. As new component-level technologies are introduced, they enable faster, lower-cost, and improved SpaceVPX (VITA 78.0) platform implementations. SpaceVPX systems that utilize these new technologies will have an increased adoption and deployment rate, creating improved development investment returns for the component suppliers while enabling accelerated deployment and usage of the integrated SpaceVPX systems.


EW systems for U.S. Navy from Lockheed Martin to include phased-array antennas from CAES - News

April 29, 2022

ARLINGTON, Va. CAES has won a Low Rate Initial Production Phase 1 (LRIP1) contract with Lockheed Martin to supply phased-array antennas for the Lockheed Martin Advanced Off-Board Electronic Warfare (AOEW) system it supplies to the U.S. Navy.  


Electronic warfare systems demand multifunctionality and integration in RF and microwave designs - Story

February 07, 2022

Radio frequency (RF) and microwave technology used in the military is ever-evolving and necessarily acclimating to the congested digital battlefield. These solutions need to be fluent in the language of electronic warfare (EW). Demands for multifunctionality, digitization, and increased sensitivity are pushing designers to add these capabilities that warfighters require when translating electronic noise into actionable information.


SoCs for space the focus of contract between CAES and European Space Agency - News

January 03, 2022

ARLINGTON, Va. MIssion-critical electronics company CAES has signed a contract with the European Space Agency (ESA) to develop a fault- and radiation-tolerant system-on-chip (SoC) intended for use in satellite and spacecraft applications.


Powering SpaceVPX systems – How to implement efficient standards-compliant solutions faster - Story

December 02, 2021

SpaceVPX undertakes a lot to deliver a lot: With so many profiles and configurations available, the devil is in the details when it comes to producing efficient, standards-compliant, power solutions. Supplying and muxing manifold power rails to payload slots through SpaceUM [utility module] is especially challenging due to the myriad of profile choices available and is further complicated in the smaller 3U form factor. The good news is that new, efficient space-grade power-conversion and control technology is making SpaceVPX/UM standards-compliant power supplies and power distribution more manageable, even in the small 3U form factor.


Microelectronics for space, and supply chain bottlenecks - Podcast

October 22, 2021

Supply chain bottlenecks, small satellites, complex adversarial threats in space and electromagnetic spectrum domains are all driving innovation at the microelectronics level. In this podcast, Dave Young, CTO of CAES, formerly Cobham, discusses how these challenges impact microelectronics solutions for military programs, how the defense industry is coping with the semiconductor supply chain headaches through investment and a plan for on-sho​re production, how commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products factor into modern military space systems, and what CAES' acquisition of Colorado Engineering means for the company.
