Deploying Commercial Electronics in Rugged Environments

When it comes to defense, all operations require a high degree of coordination and processing. As a result, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) has become a crucial component of military activity. In order to maintain stealth and avoid detection, ISR missions are forced to fly at extremely high altitudes. These altitudes present a number of environmental obstacles such as extreme temperature ranges or fluctuating atmospheric pressure – most of which cannot normally be handled by commercially available components. However, because of rising costs and time delays, developing application-specific hardware is becoming less feasible. Using a real-life case study, this white paper explores in great detail a scenario in which Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components were able to be used for a critical, extreme environment application. Check out this report, and see if cost-saving commercial COTS components can possibly be utilized for your specific needs.

Crimp Force Monitoring - The Recipe for Success

In my line of work, I have the privilege of visiting many wiring harness shops that produce wiring harnesses for many different industries. One of the common issues I've noticed when visiting shops that use crimp force monitors (CFMs) is that the CFMs are usually turned off, regardless of the brand, because engineers and operators are not using them properly. While I hope this does not apply to...
