The Raspberry Pi SWaP-C revolution: driving battlefield IoT - Story

December 01, 2022

For more than ten years, the educational, industrial, and hobbyist markets have embraced the small-form-factor Raspberry Pi single-board computer (SBC) as a preferred low-cost, low-power tool that lowers the barrier for deploying intelligence and connectivity just about anywhere that imagination directs. The result is a ubiquitous platform, with more than 45 million units sold. Today, these tiny cards are helping to make the Internet of Things (IoT) concept a reality.


DoD’s MOSA mandate drives CMOSS approach to A-PNT - Story

December 01, 2022

The U.S. Army’s Mounted Assured PNT System (MAPS) program was initiated to replace existing GPS receivers and antennas in most of the Army’s ground vehicle variants, eliminating redundancy. The program is overseen by PM-PNT at the Army’s Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, where mounted and dismounted position, navigation, and timing (PNT) technologies for the Army are developed and managed.


Space-ready electronics riding NASA's unmanned Artemis I mission - News

November 17, 2022

NASA KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. The launch of the unmanned Artemis I mission, NASA’s first step in returning to the moon, is carrying a host of critical components that power the flight computers, flight-control systems, and payloads on both the Space Launch System (SLS) and the Orion spacecraft. NASA successfully launched the Artemis I from Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday, November 16.

ASHBURN, Va. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions announced that its Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA)-based Data Transport System 1 (DTS1) network-attached storage (NAS) device was chosen by a leading U.S. system integrator for use on a small-class unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) deployment. 


Multi-INT and SOSA: A consideration of next steps - Story

October 18, 2022

Multiple intelligence (Multi-INT), sometimes referred to as multi modality, is a popular term used in recent years to describe C5ISR [command, control, computers, communications, cyber, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance] applications in which data obtained from disparate sensing sources is fused together to derive new information and operational insights. In some cases, this can mean the fusion of SIGINT [signals intelligence] data and radar data, or SIGINT data with EW [electronic warfare] data and EO/IR [electro-optical/infrared] data. In other cases, it may mean combining real-time data with post-mission analysis from previously processed data. Additionally, there are approaches where artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) assist via data and information analysis to identify patterns or predict outcomes.


Reducing SWaP in the field with a USB-based hardware security module - Story

October 17, 2022

Digital keys are a core concept in establishing secure networks, one as relevant in a data center application as it is at the edge of the tactical battlefield. While cryptography (crypto) uses both symmetric and asymmetric keys for different functions, for this column we’ll focus on asymmetric cryptography in which different keys are used for locking and unlocking.


Flight recorders comply with regulations, with no change to airframe - News

September 21, 2022

ASHBURN, Va. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions offers a 25-hour flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR) designed for use on military fixed-wing and rotor aircraft, many times with no need to alter the airframe.
