Centralize to Simplify and Save
The multiple sensors on today’s defense and aerospace platforms produce a veritable tsunami of data that must be processed quickly and efficiently to ensure mission success. Typically, these sensors are purpose built with proprietary or inflexible hardware and protocol interfaces that require specific processors to meet data processing requirements. As a result, system integrators must apply significant resources to achieve performance and functional compliance. This slows development and system integration, and often delays time to market.
Fortunately, existing and emerging standards are making it easier to leverage innovative, multi-vendor, open-architecture building blocks for rugged embedded solutions that deliver the required balance between Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWaP-C) for defense applications. With standards-based, pre-integrated, and prevalidated Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) building blocks, integrators can reduce program risk, expedite development-to-deployment, and create quality, affordable High-Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) systems (Figure 1).
