Part 4 of 4: Defence Lasers and Optronic Systems: Gas Laser Electronics

Carbon dioxide laser-based range finders and laser radar and helium-neon laser-cavity-based ring-laser gyroscope inertial navigation sensors are among the common military applications exploiting use of gas lasers. In addition, such gas...

“Wearable technologies are starting to play a crucial role in the military as well”

High-end technology is vital to the success of a defence program. From soldiers in the field to decision-makers in the command and control centres, the flow of secure, real-time and accurate...

Smart Shells: The Electronics Behind Big Guns (Part 3 of 3)

Even though the big guns are expected to fire ‘intelligently,’ shells fly through the air. Turbulences, humidity and sudden gusts of air can alter the trajectory of the shells. They might...

Fire Control Systems: The Electronics Behind Big Guns (Part 2 of 3)

To shoot a target, the gun of a tank or self-propelled gun (SPG) has to be oriented at a particular angle with respect to horizontal and vertical planes. These two angles...

DIY Products Getting Into Space

Scientists have been exploring the earth and space science from as early as 4900 B.C. From ancient Egyptians to Galileo to Neil de Grasse Tyson, the secrets of the cosmos have...

Part 1 of 4: Defence Lasers and Optronic Systems: Role of Electronics

There has been a dramatic increase in the commercial, industrial, medical, defence and research applications of lasers in the last 10 to 15 years. During this period, we have not only...

Part 2 of 4: Defence Lasers and Optronic Systems: Solid-State Laser Electronics

Laser rangefinders and laser target designators are the most abundantly used laser systems for tactical battlefield scenarios. Laser rangefinders are used both as standalone devices as well as integral parts of...

GaN Solutions for Next Generation Military Communications

Advanced waveforms and signal processing increase the channel efficiency, improve jam resistance, allow networking, interoperability, and other tailoring to specific operational scenarios. But in all cases, the radio must confront the...

“Space applications need a working lifetime of 15 years, and absolutely no mortality is...

Space and avionics applications need a high level of reliability as they face extreme conditions in space. In order to develop components qualified for this application, engineers need to design high...

Underwater and other Emerging Trends in Laser Communication

  Underwater laser communication is a technique that employs laser propagation under water to transmit data from one point to another. The technology is useful where physical connections through fibre optic cables...
