Power systems, thermal management and cooling technologies are critical for wide employment of directed energy weapons

A directed-energy weapons (DEW) are ranged weapon systems that inflicts damage at a target by emission of highly focused energy, including laser, microwaves and particle beams. Potential applications of this technology include anti-personnel weapon systems, missile defense system, and the disabling of lightly armored vehicles or mounted optical devices   …

Wide adoption of Laser designators in Military to provide targeting for laser-guided bombs, missiles, or precision artillery munitions

One of the most challenging tasks in any aerial combat situation is to determine which assets on the ground should be targeted and which ones should be avoided. This is particularly challenging in the situation where enemy assets are camouflaged or hidden amongst civilian assets. Because of this a practice …

System on chip (SoC) enabling small (SWaP) Military micro air vehicles, and soldier-worn electronics

A system on a chip or system on chip (SoC)  is an integrated circuit (also known as a “chip”) that integrates all components of a computer or other electronic system. These components typically (but not always) include a central processing unit (CPU), memory, input/output ports and secondary storage – all …
