Man-carried military communication systems often consume large amounts of power. The heat must be removed from the electronics package to avoid frying sensitive electronic components. The package typically is designed to be carried in a backpack which often puts difficult constraints on the form factor and weight of the system.
Allocation of restricted access rights that allow only the essential information required for each engineer to complete their activities involves central access control that can be integrated within the current product development lifecycle. Zuken’s solutions have been structured to aid this process and provide a smooth way forward for product development.
The silicon brains of today’s warfighters are just as complex as their alloy exteriors, requiring engineers like those at Lockheed Martin to have mastery of not only aeronautics and flight, but also advanced computing and electronics.
Last month I visited Poland’s major defense show, MSPO, for the first time. Because I’d visited DSEI in London last year I was familiar with the military grandeur that you only experience at one of these big defense industry events. But the difference at MSPO is that although it’s huge and the general investment in the show is visible, it’s much more hands-on. The event has grown in its 24 years to become the third largest defense show in Europe.
Here in Poland we are currently undergoing a major investment in our own defense capabilities. This may not come as a surprise to people outside of our country, given our geographical position in eastern Europe; not to mention the vast amount of military kit still in use that goes back to the old Soviet days.
