As advanced network features and increasing speeds are added to next-generation rugged embedded switches, these products become even more useful for military applications by helping to reduce system size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) through a redu...
Small form factor and ultra-small form factor mission computer/network solutions meet expanding UAV requirements
As missions expand and the classes of different types of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) become better defined, the commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) community can meet the new requirements with open architecture solutions that reduce design risk, lower costs, and speed time to deployment. UAV system designers can select solutions based on their application requirements, the line-replaceable unit- (LRU) or line-replaceable module (LRM)-based subsystem solution that best meets mission needs, payload capabilities, and the platform’s size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations.
