Thanks to ever increasing semiconductor integration and creative engineering, more subsystems functionality can be squeezed into a single compact system than ever before. Military vehicles are taking advantage by combining modular systems. Some embedded subsystems can now support I/O expansion combined with network processing, Ethernet switching, and IP traffi c routing in a single box.. 

Merging Computing and Comms to Address Military Vehicle SWaP Requirements

whitepaperThe military has a strong directive when it comes to military electronics – reduce SWaP. Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) is a major driving force behind the development of modern computer equipment destined for the battlefi eld. Whether the computing device is worn by the soldier or mounted in a vehicle, the size, weight and power of the device is critical for determining its effectiveness for the warfighter.

Engineering Today’s Military Electronics to Meet Size, Weight and Power Demands

Cisco WhitepaperWith the government’s wide-spread adoption of Cisco products and its comprehensive feature set, military contractors are increasingly seeking Cisco-based rugged computing solutions for deployment in tactical military applications onboard land and air vehicles. However, although Cisco products contain superior networking capabilities, their original mechanical design is not always capable of enduring rugged military conditions. By adopting ruggedized Cisco switches and networking solutions, the government can provide a cost-effective method for implementing the latest networking technology that meets their stringent environmental compliance standards.
