The requirements imposed on short- and very short-range air defense have become much more complex in recent years, both quantitatively and qualitatively: air threats continue to mutate and multiply. This case study describes how Abaco was called upon by one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of sophisticated air defense systems to equip the control console unit of its latest solution.
The threat from submarines continues to evolve, with non-nuclear-powered submarines becoming increasingly important and the move from deep sea operations to littoral operations. When a major technology company needed a high performance, minimal SWaP computing subsystem for a planned anti-submarine warfare system, it turned to Abaco and the MCS1000 rugged mission and display computer.
In a rapidly changing technology environment, developers of advanced electronic warfare solutions face a sometimes bewildering array of choices. It’s not just about RF performance, though. Here, we describe some of the options and trade-offs.
Once, SWaP – size, weight and power – was all-important for embedded computing in military applications. It still is – but now, the DoD is focusing on SWaP-C3: SWaP plus cost, cooling and compliance. Here, we show how Abaco delivers on the requirement.
