Description

Organized by engineers for engineers and engineering management, this is the premier conference for military and space electronics issues. This 6th International Conference addresses systems, subsystems, circuit boards and components. This Premier Annual Conference and Exhibition will continue to specialize in COTS equipment and components while also emphasizing new technology, processes and design practices. Emphasis will be placed on practical solutions, new techniques and how to assess the risks of COTS and make cost effective decisions which meet the mission requirements. Papers reporting on actual experience, knowledge and data gained from the use of commercial components and COTS in military and space systems are solicited.

Working groups and discussion sessions are planned on specific topics of concern to the industry or were requested. New issues identified by the delegates to the previous year’s conference will be addressed.

Experts from throughout the world are requested to submit an abstract for a presentation on the conference topics. Papers reporting on actual experience, knowledge and data gained from the use of commercial components and COTS in military and space systems are solicited. Specific subjects to be discussed include:

• COTS systems vs custom military designs
• Meeting harsh environments through ruggedizing practices
• The industry conflict over upscreening & uprating
• Achieving mission reliability cost effectively
• Dealing with obsolescence
• Approaches for converting older military systems to COTS
• Does open system architecture really solve obsolescence?
• Are COTS components more expensive when QML is available?
• Successful case studies of COTS in military & space systems
