Precision-Guided Munitions: Radar-Guided Weapons (Part 4 of 4)

Radar guidance like infrared (IR) homing guidance is predominantly used in surface-to-air and air-to-air guided weapons. While IR homing guidance is largely employed in short and medium operational ranges, radar guidance...

Directed Energy Weapons: High-Power Microwaves

Part 1 and Part 2 covered particle beam weapons and their technology, respectively. In this part we look at high-power microwaves (HPMs). In the era dominated by electronic warfare and smartweapons systems...

How To Build A Quadcopter?

Quadcopters are becoming more widespread because they are incredibly stable, fast and fun to fly. Newer technologies have allowed development of smaller and cheaper quads with vast capabilities. While a quadcopter...

Serial 64-Mbit Radiation Tolerant Flash Memory for Aerospace Operations

Microchip has announced the release of SST26LF064RT, a 64-Mbit serial quad I/O NOR flash memory device for use in harsh aerospace and defense system environments. The commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) memory technology...

Precision-Guided Munitions: Guidance Techniques (Part 1 of 4)

Precision has always been one of the five most important attributes of a weapon, with operational range, striking power, volume of fire and portability being the other four. The state-of-the-art precision-guided...

Precision-Guided Munitions: Laser-Guided Munitions (Part 2 of 4)

Laser-guided munitions are the most widely exploited electro-optically-guided precision-strike munitions on various land based, sea based and airborne military platforms, such as main battle tanks, armoured fighting vehicles, ships, fighter aircrafts...

Ensuring Quality and Reliability of Electronic Systems

Key to success of any product lies in its producibility, quality and reliability. Quality and reliability cannot be achieved by just arriving at a schematic to perform a required function and...

Wireless Technology for Defence

The defence industry is turning to a new generation of systems for faster, cheaper and more flexible communication, security and more. Communication is essential for military operations, although it is difficult to...

Optronic Sensors: Gyroscopic Sensors (Part 4 of 6)

Read Part 3 Operational basics, salient features and military specific applications of ring laser gyroscopes and fibre-optic gyroscopes are discussed in this part of the article. Gyroscopic sensors constitute an essential component of inertial...

US Department of Defense Unveils Prototypes of New Warfighting Satellites

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been working on some innovative technologies that could be quite useful to the military. Synthetic aperture radar satellites, which can see through clouds and...
