Hardware full disk encryption technology for military applications using two-layer commercial solutions - Story

January 19, 2018
While the consumer market promotes rapid adoption of new microelectronics with ever-shortening product life cycles, the military market demands risk mitigation and long-term supply continuity - even for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts modified or screened to military requirements. Given the advantages of solid state drive (SSD) devices that consumers take for granted today, it is not surprising to see SSD devices adopted for military applications. In a prior publication, we defined the standards for a military grade data storage device with security designed in from the early stages of development. This new class of military storage devices, referred to as Secure SSD, is engineered with security built-in from the design phase.

Miniaturizing electronic warfare microelectronics to advance precision-guided weapon technologies - Story

November 07, 2017
Electronic warfare (EW) technologies are normally deployed in ground, naval, and airborne platforms to maintain a strategic and tactical advantage in the modern battlefield. As the threat environment evolves, there is an increasing need to integrate sophisticated EW capability into precision-guided weapons (PGW). These platforms present the most demanding size, weight, and power (SWaP) challenges for the defense microelectronics industry today. Recent technology developments have yielded high-performance, miniaturized and ruggedized RF components and modules for these SWaP-constrained EW systems.
