Keeler, Mil/Aero Director of Business Development at GE Intelligent Platforms, discusses why AdvancedTCA is a natural fit for a whole range of military applications.

Q: Is AdvancedTCA really finding its way into military applications? And if so, why?
A: The military relies on communication. Today, that means advanced networks which include everything from tactical radios to live HD video satellite links. And the future of military communication is going to be even more heavily “network-centric.” AdvancedTCA was designed from the ground up for...

Unmmanned VehiclesToday’s military relies on communications and is steadily becoming heavily network-centric. Originally designed for the telecom industry, AdvancedTCA is a proven platform that meets the crucial requirements for military core network applications in benign behind the front line environments. RASM (Reliability, Availability, Serviceability, Manageability) is just one such requirement; ATCA offers a minimum of 99.999% uptime availability, redundancy, field serviceability and robust platform management capabilities. In this interview, Roy

IP Packet Processors
Introducing the First OCTEON™ II- Based Packet Processor
The WANic 6354, based on Cavium Networks’ new OCTEON II CN6335-AAP Application Acceleration processor with 6 cores at 1.1GHz, is ideal for high-volume IP communication networks. This packet processor can be configured to enable a wide variety of applications such as demanding wire-speed communications for secure IP access, network encryption, network monitoring and DPI.
Single Board Computers
ACR301 Rugged 3U CPCI SBC
Designed to meet requirements of a wide range of applications from industrial through fully rugged Defense and Aerospace programs, the ACR301 combines a choice of four low power Atom E6 series processors up to 1.6 GHz, wide range of I/O options (CR4 IO compatible), PMC on-board expansion slot, extended temperature capability, and a range of air and conduction cooled build levels.
CUDA Starter Kit
6U OpenVPX CUDA Starter Kit
6U CUDA Starter Kit shortens time to solution for advanced GPGPU platforms by delivering a flexible, OpenVPX development system complete with all the processor cards, I/O modules and software required to create and demonstrate a deployable platform. GE's OpenVPX GPGPU solutions are ideal for applications that require increased performance in size, weight and power (SWaP) constrained deployed platforms.
