The article discusses how the computer survives in a battlefield. Ruggedisation is the key to make the equipment durable to endure the bumps, mishandling, temperature humidity extremes. DRS Technologies introduced Octopus multi-processing system with gigabit Ethernet control planes. Other manufacturers are Aitech which unleashed its C102 multi-processing subsystem and Pentek which designed a line of cots software defined radio, field programmable gate array and other form factors.
