Technology Overview

Military and Aerospace Domains Favor Innovative Commercial Off-the-shelf Subsystems for Mission-critical Applications

Vehicle systems are growing in complexity due to the advances in the technologies that make-up each of the subsystems. Today, military and aerospace sectors have begun to accept and adopt commercial off-the-shelf (COTS)-based technologies. Attempts to enforce standardization to promote system interoperability often hinder creativity in the design and manufacture of system components. As there are significant unavoidable performance requirements, system designers are replacing discrete systems and components with programmable counterparts. This is the trend throughout all aerospace and defense applications. “The military vehicles market traditionally had a low-electronics component; however, this is changing very rapidly as there is a surge in uptake of vetronics in recent times,” notes the analyst of this research service. “Vehicle management systems, tactical battle management systems, remote overhead weapon systems, observation screens, and digital intercoms are all now using off-the-shelf elements.” The emergence of cost-effective, upgraded, and integrated vetronic systems is expected to stoke growth in this market.

Customers in the military and aerospace domains are seeking turnkey systems manufactured by a single vendor rather than COTS from various manufacturers that are not custom designed to work cohesively and targeted at a particular functional application. Highly integrated solutions that work out of the box when the application is layered on are the current requirement in this industry. Faster digital signal processors (DSPs), coupled with a broader range of intellectual property (IP) cores and development tools for field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), are joining forces to form new DSP system architectures. Using these building blocks, board-level subsystems must quickly acquire and process massive amounts of data in real time. As FPGAs evolve to ever-greater sophistication, complete systems can be integrated into one or more FPGAs. System developers can now build radar receiver systems with a higher instantaneous bandwidth. A wealth of FPGA board-level products are available aimed specifically at this area.

With the growing need for mobility across many military applications, end-users now demand reduced size, weight, and power (SWaP) to ensure reliable portability. Multi-core technology has addressed these issues by offering higher computing performance, reduced chip count, and lower bill of material (BOM) cost. The added electronic subsystems are, in turn, heavily taxing the heat management and power distribution systems on many vehicles. New, lower-power, active, and passive protection subsystems are now needed to protect troops round the clock. Power conversion assemblies in military vehicles face challenges due to the severe environment in which they operate and the mission-critical nature of their deployment. As they operate in remote areas where maintenance is bound to be limited, unexpected failures could prove to be catastrophic. Next-generation military vehicles will be utilizing unprecedented levels of power and requiring standardization. “Conventional microelectronic design techniques are deficient in terms of power density, reliability, and cost for these applications,” says the analyst. “System designers must develop alternative design methods for highly reliable power conversion that will attain new levels of standardization and performance.” Close cooperation between vehicle designers, power electronics engineers, component developers, and system integrators will be required to enhance performance of vetronics. Open architectures, based on vehicle systems integration will promote cross-fleet commonality, which in turn will lead to savings generated by an anticipated reduction of costs
