Enabling open architectures in rugged ISR applications. Live Event: December 4, 2013 (11:00 AM EST/9:00 AM MST) Pentek, TE Connectivity, and RTI participate in OpenSystems Media E-cast

OpenSystems Media (OSM), LLC today announced its upcoming E-cast on enabling open architectures in rugged ISR applications, moderated by John McHale, Editorial Director, OpenSystems Media.

Even though the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) budget is shrinking and the country's military footprint worldwide is receding the need for the warfighter to have accurate and actionable intelligence has never been more critical. Data from Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems such as radar, image processing payloads on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and more will be used and fused together to provide commanders with real-time Situational Awareness (SA). Each system will also need to embrace open architectures and the latest commercial standards to meet the DoD's performance, size, and cost requirements.

This webinar will discuss how embedded defense suppliers are meeting these challenges.

Who: John McHale, Editorial Director, OpenSystems Media

What: Sponsors Pentek, TE Connectivity, and RTI present a live OpenSystems Media E-cast, “Enabling open architectures in rugged ISR applications”

When: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 (11:00 AM EST/9:00 AM MST)
