April 9, 2019 | By: Michael Gates

It seems that every week lately there is a story on the evening news about a database that has been breached and a warning issued that hackers may have your login credentials. Network information security doesn’t appear to be too healthy. One ingredient that can be used to improve the health of the system is salt.

SWaP – It’s bigger than ‘the box’

March 28, 2019 | By: Fred Elliott

When most people think about low SWaP, they tend to focus solely on the size of the box itself, without thinking about everything that comes with it. In this post, we will take a more holistic approach to Low SWaP and address things such as batteries, generators, peripherals, transportation, and support personnel. Looks can be deceiving, and the size of any given device is only a small part of the big picture.

The importance of resiliency and redundancy on the battlefield

March 13, 2019

The U.S. keeps losing in simulated wars with Russia and China. In these simulations, our enemies don’t just sink ships and burn bases. They knock out America’s nerve center by hacking, jamming, or ultimately destroying our communications satellites, wireless networks, data networks, and command-and-control systems.
