Military Space Cloud Architecture (MILSCA) will be able to store more than 100 Terabytes of data generated on Earth and in space on board each constellation satellite with a processing power exceeding 250 TFLOPS (250,000 billion operations per second).
Raytheon Anschutz launches Synapsis Naval
Raytheon Anschutz has launched a new naval navigation and bridge system called Synapsis Naval, the company announced on 30 May.
The new technology builds on the company’s previously developed Synapsis Integrated Navigation System. It integrates radar video merging and other tactical radar features, integrated situational awareness, ship self-defence capabilities, military surveillance radars and cyber security solutions.
The software-defined system is built on commercial off-the-shelf technology and open systems architecture to simplify maintenance and to support upgrades and future capability requirements.
With advanced sensor degradation and data distribution management, Synapsis Naval provides a base for scalability of system functions and integration with other onboard systems such as automation or combat management. This includes integration of customer-specific equipment and integration of hardware or network infrastructure.
