In the defense industry, AI is on the path to becoming a loyal companion to the warfighter and manufacturers alike. As technology progresses, so does the range of defense capabilities that AI could not only supplement, but eventually manage.
In support of the Australian Army’s Project Land 400 Phase 2 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicle (CRV), Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions’ Switzerland-based Drive Technology business is supplying its modular Turret Drive Servo System (TDSS) and hand controller technologies to Rheinmetall...
Prototype designs for the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program, one of the U.S. Army’s most important and game-changing initiatives, are fully embracing the open architecture design philosophy for the next-generation helicopters that will replace its fleet of OH58 Kiowa Warrior, AH64...
Missile testing programs rely on the telemeter, a costly system that captures flight-test data. Bringing off-the-shelf modular architectures to missile telemeter design lowers costs, enables more tests, and reduces program and schedule risk.
Contested space, where nations compete for military dominance outside Earth’s atmosphere, is driving many military space platforms.
Tools and technologies, including real-time sensors, video displays, mission computers, and video-distribution systems, are evolving to bring new advanced solutions to the warfighter.
A new era of Robotic Combat Vehicles (RCV) is about to begin. The U.S. Army is getting ready to evaluate competing candidates to meet requirements for light and medium versions of a new class of modular unmanned ground vehicle (UGV).
The latest generation of unmanned vehicles operating on land, in the air, and at sea no longer simply are remotely operated. These advanced systems have built-in intelligence to learn from their experiences and make their own decisions.
Aviation cybersecurity mandates by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) are coming in the next two years.
Awareness is mounting regarding the importance of protecting data-at-rest (DAR) on deployed military platforms.
