Regardless of which military trade show I attend or what military application is being discussed at a show, the common trend is that everything is getting smaller, whether it's GPS systems, avionics computers, unmanned aircraft system (UAV) payloads, etc. This trend bodes well for suppliers to the military of small-form-factor standards such as PC/104, COM Express, or SMARC.
Mercury Systems to Feature Open Architecture Electronics for Next-Generation EW Capabilities at the AOC International Symposium and Convention
Mercury showcasing solutions that address the growing demand for sophisticated EW solutions at AOC beginning December 1.
Small form factor (SFF) requirements continue to drive higher-performance computing platforms in electronic warfare (EW) and other signal-processing intensive applications year after year as there is an insatiable need for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR). Airborne EW is a critical component of the military's overall EW strategy and almost all approaches desire more computational performance while reducing size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) as more capabilities are added.
