C4i Enabling Tactical Intercom Solutions
As every good business leader knows, communication is one of their most vital tools. In the military world it’s increasingly being seen as a key weapon for the future of modern warfare. Their search for an effective tactical communication system has been long and not without its setbacks. The trouble has not been the available technological innovation, but taking it all and making it workable for the battlefield.
Naval Vessel Technology – Fr. Lurssen Wreft
Offshore patrol vessels, frigates and corvettes have for a long time been the backbone of many naval forces. This Report looks at alternatives to the use of vessels designed for high-intensity conflicts in dealing with situations such as combating pirates with hand-held firearms, securing coastal waters or responding to international catastrophes such as tsunamis.
Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch and Recovery Systems – General Atomics
Electromagnetic aircraft launch and recovery systems depend on a technology that is familiar in China and Japan for commuter rapid transit services, but it is less familiar in the West. It brings real benefits to aircraft launch and recovery to aircraft carriers - the most expensive and iconic symbol of a nation’s strategic strike capability.
Advanced Missile Warning Systems for Military Fighter Aircraft – Terma
This Special Report looks at the changes in threats to fighter aircraft that have taken place since the Radio Frequency (RF) threats of the 1970s. Man-Portable Air Defense Systems (MANPADS) have been developed which are, typically, self-contained and can be operated by one man without any infrastructure. This has led to the necessity of developing Missile Warning Systems (MWS) on fighter aircraft.
Innovations in High Performance Tactical Equipment for Modern Military Operations – Wilcox
This report highlights the development of the Rapid Acquisition Aiming Module (RAAM) and how it has helped to revolutionize the levels of precision achievable by modern soldiers.
Filtration Technology for Military Aircraft Applications’ – Donaldson
Engineers and designers create engineering systems for military fixed wing and rotorcraft to fight in the extremes of environmental conditions. Their filtration technology is the interface between systems and the gases, dust and compounds that contaminate the gas and fluid flows within those systems. The systems are highly engineered, often bespoke and have to meet all the demands of 21st century defense and aerospace contractors.
RF-Over-Fiber Solutions for Modern Military Applications – Huber and Suhner
Real time communication at the speed of light, to deliver streamed data on a mobile computer/smartphone is now an almost universal consumer aspiration. Data streaming can be established in hard to reach areas, within buildings such as airports, shopping malls and distant airport runways. These RF-over-Fiber systems are the topic of this Special Report, particularly in relation to military applications.
Training Systems for Modern Armoured Combat Vehicle Applications – SAAB
Few organisations invest as much money or spend as much time on training as the military, and with good reason. When people are sent to war, the quality of their training can be a matter of life and death. For that reason, commanders are forever looking for ways to make training more effective, more realistic and more valuable to their soldiers. That means constantly re-evaluating current procedures and asking the question: can this be done better?
Marine Propulsion: Exploring New Technologies – GE Marine
Throughout the last hundred years the development of marine propulsion has been a story of continual, gradual evolution punctuated by major leaps forward. Today, it’s in need of another, as it looks for a sustainable high performance option for modern operations.
Aircraft Health Monitoring Systems – UTC Aerospace Technology
Aircraft health monitoring is becoming a growing issue in military aviation. Operators, on the other hand, want to measure the performance of the latest aircraft, avoid unexpected failure, reduce maintenance times and improve the lifespan of aging aircraft.
