J VanDomelen The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) is the largest defense acquisition program in history, with the United States buying 2,443 of these sophisticated aircraft for a whopping $323 billion. Washington, with its rich history of aerospace innovation, is a major player in the creation of these feats of modern engineering totaling $191.1 million per unit in 2010 (according to the United States Air Force FY … Read More

J VanDomelen The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is arguably one of the most anticipated commercial aircraft releases in many years. With the 787-8 boasting carrying capacities of 210 to 250 passengers with ranges of 7,650 to 8,200 nautical miles and the 787-9 capable of toting 250 to 290 passengers on routes of 8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles, the Boeing 787 certainly presents many benefits to the end user, especially in the … Read More

J VanDomelen When President Obama unveiled his budget in February, it included an increase in NASA funding. Despite tough economic times, more than $100 billion over the next five years is earmarked for NASA. Nonetheless, the proposed budget still caused upset for those involved in the U.S. space program, including the wealth of aerospace contractors, subcontractors, systems integrators, and technology companies … Read More

J VanDomelen Technology is moving at an accelerated pace. Processor development yields novel architectures, greater power, and faster speeds; and, all the while, technology companies and device manufacturers are vying to be the one with the “next best thing.” I have been in the mil/aero industry more than a decade and have always been on top of the latest and greatest; it’s a geek’s hobby after all. However, there … Read More

At the heart of most mil/aero electronics—and arguably the most important component of current electronics systems is the processor. Virtually all mil/aero electronics take advantage of processors of one sort or another, whether x86, powerPC, RISC, FPGA, 32-bit, or 64-bit. Many different types of processing devices are employed by the modern warfighter, in fact. Today’s soldier, fed up with being made

Processors are rapidly advancing the state of the art in the commercial world, and the mil/aero community is anxious to reap the benefits of the technology. Moore’s Law, which states that the number of transistors placed on an integrated circuit will double every two years, has taken on a slightly different look and feel as we are reach the physical limits of transistor density in a single core. We

J VanDomelen The mil/aero industry is alive with a flurry of grants activity. Various federal agencies and organizations are seeking high-end technology and research on a wide array of topics, largely with the goal of putting bleeding-edge electronics in the hands of warfighters to ensure their safety and mission success. A quick perusal of Grants.gov and Recovery.gov, among other relevant sites, provides significant … Read More

J VanDomelen ESC is always the best place to see the latest and greatest in embedded electronics here in the states. When touring the ESC exhibit floor, I am always interested, and sometimes amazed, to see how much the form factors of printed circuit boards (PCBs), connectors, and myriad other components have shrunk, and this year was no different.

J VanDomelen Even when I was a young boy, it was evident that I was a bit different. It is not every 10-year-old boy who locks himself away in his room to carefully disassemble the newest electronic gadget just to see how it works. Many a birthday gift has been sacrificed to curiosity. I could also be found scavenging components—a 12-volt automotive battery and charger, car stereo, amplifier, and a bunch of old … Read More
