Defense funding for unmanned and artificial intelligence (AI) systems is increasing by leaps and bounds, driving the need for computing systems to be smaller, faster, and more compatible. The demand for compatibility and commonality follows the convergence of open architecture initiatives like the Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA), C4ISR/EW [electronic warfare] Modular Open Suite of Standards (CMOSS), and Modular Open Radio Frequency Architecture (MORA), just to name a few.
The demand for AI is driving much of this trend toward small form factor (SFF) computing. Solutions that enable AI like Jetson and Movidious make it an easy transition into the smaller form factor realm by utilizing carrier boards and I/O solutions that will promote an advantage in reduced size, weight, and power – cost (SWaP-C). Intel and Nvidia are making this possible for the defense and aerospace market by supporting their chips sets on the embedded roadmap for 10 plus years. READ MORE...
With over 13,000 members internationally, the Association of Old Crows is an organization for individuals who have common interests in Electronic Warfare (EW), Electromagnetic Spectrum Management Operations, Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA), Information Operations (IO), and other information related capabilities. The Association of Old Crows provides a means of connecting members and organizations nationally and internationally across government, defense, industry, and academia to promote the exchange of ideas and information, and provides a platform to recognize advances and contributions in these fields.
