|Air Defense Systems||March 2020||
The requirements imposed on short- and very short-range air defense have become much more complex in recent years, both quantitatively and qualitatively: air threats continue tomutate and multiply. This case study describes how Abaco was called upon by one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of sophisticated air defense systems to equip the control console unit of its latest solution.
|Anti-Submarine Warfare||March 2020||
The threat from submarines continues to evolve, with non-nuclear-powered submarines becoming increasingly important and the move from deep sea operations to littoral operations. When a major technology company needed a high performance, minimal SWaP computing subsystem for a planned anti-submarine warfare system, it turned to Abaco and the MCS1000 rugged mission and display computer.
|Warships receive enhanced fire control system||March 2018||
Upgrading the network infrastructure on a warship is a significant task, with many unique challenges. The US Navy was looking to leverage the benefits of fully managed Ethernet switches, using a common, flexible operating environment across the fleet – while retaining its legacy systems.
|LiDAR system maximizes crew protection||March 2018||
The AW139 is said to be the best-selling helicopter in its weight category and the most successful helicopter programme in the last 15 years. It has benefited from numerous technology upgrades – like the Abaco-enabled OPLS.
|SAR missions get improved safety, efficiency||March 2018||
Leonardo was looking to integrate new, advanced capabilities into its range of rotary wing aircraft to increase their capacity for mission success. Advanced graphics would make a substantial contribution to reducing pilot workload and enhancing situational awareness.
|AI helps make oceans safer||March 2018||
AI and machine learning are enabling new levels of capability in mission critical environments. CMRE took advantage in order to increase the efficiency and safety of unmanned underwater vehicles in detecting naval mines.
|Time passes, technology changes||February 2018||
When BAE Systems needed to provide a significant performance upgrade to the onboard processing capability of the Eurofighter, the company turned to Abaco for a solution that met its demanding size, weight and power criteria.
|Fifteen years of capability enhancement||February 2018||
The Abrams Tank has seen a series of upgrades in its 40 year history. General Dynamics chose Abaco’s SBCs, graphics cards and network switches for two major technology refreshes that have delivered more functionality in less space.
|Upgrading a network in space||February 2018||
Few deployed environments are more demanding than the International Space Station, which will be in service for 20+ years. Find out how Abaco was able to rise to the challenge of delivering the necessary absolute reliability and long term support – with a highly creative solution.
