The Digital Thread: The Advancement of Digital Backbones and the World’s First Digital Fiber Fabric

Podcast:  On Demand

Modeling an “information highway” approach, the digital backbone concept provides a unified, connected communication infrastructure for the increasing number of digital technologies being implemented throughout military and defense applications. This concept, which heavily utilizes COTS systems for scale and cost-efficiencies, is shaping how the future battlefield will look, from unmanned vehicle and aircraft to man-wearable and portable military technologies.

Overview:
In this exclusive interview between EE Journal’s Amelia Dalton and Aitech’s VP Global Marketing Duc Huy Tran, the two investigate the enablement of digital backbones for military applications, the evolution of COTS in military and aerospace designs, and why standardization is crucial in this arena to form the basis for efficient integrated embedded systems for tomorrow military systems.
