EMBEDDED COMPUTING

EMBEDDED COMPUTING

Embedded Computing is an important aspect of defense electronics systems, routinely fielded in aerospace, ground and naval applications. Many critical functions such as data processing, Electronic Warfare (EW), imaging and communications are made possible by specifically designed embedded computing systems.  These Defense systems require significant functionality and speed leading to increasingly higher levels of waste heat, which must be managed without affecting the systems’ durability or form factor.

DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS

DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPONS

Directed Energy Weapons are designed to damage targets at long distances with concentrated energy including lasers, microwaves and particle beams. The concentration of this energy leads to large heat loss. The overall reliability of the system relies on keeping the energy source at safe operating temperature. In many applications, the effectiveness of the laser can be negatively impacted by poor thermal management.  In addition to power and thermal performance, these systems must be contained in extremely size and weight friendly packages.
