JPEG2000 cuts delays in digital video distribution - Story

March 20, 2009
Digital video distribution is a major growth area - and not just on traditional surveillance platforms such as naval combat systems, maritime patrol aircraft, or armored scout vehicles. Digital distribution removes the straitjacket of wired analog distribution, with discrete cables per video source, enabling video to be distributed over multiple carriers over long distances and at high quality and high resolutions.

More power to ground vehicle systems - Story

February 10, 2009
As the roles and missions of ground vehicles become more complex, the demands placed on their electrical power generation and distribution systems have increased dramatically. Even light, high-mobility vehicles, such as the ubiquitous High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV), are being mounted with sensor, weapon, and communications systems requiring much greater generating capacity than they were originally designed to provide.

Enhanced network security protects warfighters' platforms - Story

November 11, 2008
The rollout of planned Network Enabled Capability (NEC) by a number of nations' armed forces highlights the need for renewed emphasis on security. Networks are being implemented that encompass all levels of information and intelligence exchange from strategic planning, logistics, battle groups, and sensor and weapons platforms down to the tactical deployment of individuals.

Optical fiber connectivity for rugged, embedded systems - Story

September 25, 2008
Optical fiber is the transmission medium of choice for many military and aerospace applications because of its immunity to EMI, its lack of detectable electromagnetic emissions, its lower weight than copper cabling, and its ability to transmit high-speed signals over greater distances than equivalent copper connections.

New FPGAs slot into heterogeneous DSP systems - Story

July 08, 2008
There is no doubt that FPGAs with their large arrays of multipliers have transformed the repetitive, parallel processing of sensor data at the front end of DSP systems such as radar, signals intelligence, and Electro-Optical/Infrared (EO/IR). Although earlier FPGAs offered the computational performance required, integrating the FPGA with the next level of processing while achieving optimal performance and dataflows required specialized skills as well as intimate application knowledge.

Single-source approach speeds delivery, mitigates risk for radar and signal processing systems - Story

June 24, 2008
Radar and sonar systems are hugely complex animals. They don?t just rely on garden-variety single board computers; they need sensor processor front ends, intermediate signal converters, legacy military interfaces, graphics processors, and other functions. Rob Hoyecki cautions that because of the complexities involved, it?s advisable to stick with a single systems integrator to pull all these bits together.
