J VanDomelen It is evident, based on recent news and talks with mil/aero industry vendors, that an ever-increasing number of U.S. owned and operated businesses are selling mechanical, electrical, and electronic components and systems to key Chinese corporations for use in commercial aircraft. BBC News has reported that some of the biggest names in aerospace—General Electric, Honeywell, and Rockwell Collins, to name … Read More

J VanDomelen In recent years, privately funded companies have made many efforts to develop and test space-capable vehicles. One of the most well-known, prize-based technology encouragement activities is the Ansari X Prize, founded in 2004 by the non-profit organization the X Prize Foundation. The competition’s rules were simple: The first privately funded, non-government organization to develop a reusable, manned … Read More

J VanDomelen The military and aerospace (mil/aero) community uses hundreds of acronyms; this fact became evident almost immediately as I began work in the industry. The most prevalent and important acronym continues to be SWaP—which stands for size, weight, and power. SWaP is of paramount importance to mil/aero systems designers, and to the end users—including warfighters in the field reliant on electrical and … 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

J VanDomelen

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

J VanDomelen The mil/aero community is beginning to turn to current bleeding-edge computing technology, and move away from lengthy design cycles that result in fielding technology that is often four to five, or even 10 years, behind the commercial curve. The network-centric battlefield—in which the right information is delivered to the right person at the right time—is starting to take shape, and it requires secure, … Read More
