Welcome to Kontron's News section
The arrival of Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA)Technical Standard 1.0 means a realization of the efforts of not only the Tri-Services (Air Force, Army, Navy), but also industry and academia in bringing open architecture concepts to electronic warfare, radar, SIGINT, and other mission-critical military applications. The release of 1.0 (date TBD) follows upon the release of SOSA Technical Standard Snapshot 3, which continued to define the SOSA functions and behaviors of the modules and associated interfaces.
This webcast featuring industry experts will discuss how Version 1.0 affects requirements and technology development for warfighters’ radar and electronic warfare systems from an embedded hardware and software perspective.

The new Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) being spearheaded by the Air Force, Army, and Navy seeks to develop standards and architectures that provide uniformity, interoperability, and open architectures while simultaneously driving down procurement and operational costs for new C4ISR platforms.
This one-hour Technical Webinar from the editors of Tech Briefs Media examines the impact this new initiative will have on OpenVPX. Three of the industry's leading experts provide insight on this important topic.
Modern processors, graphics processors, FPGAs, etc. provide untold performance benefits, but also generate excessive amounts of heat. Getting rid of this heat and keeping electronics cool is essential for designers of electronic warfare, radar, and other processing-intensive military applications. This has become even more important as the electronics footprint continues to shrink.
This webcast of industry experts will cover various methods for solving thermal management challenges in military systems when integrating commercial processing technology.

Real World Use Case:
How UPC Hungary rapidly rolled-out new value-add OTT video service to 500k+ subscribers
Date: September 8, 2015
Speakers: Kontron, Intel, UPC, ActiveVideo
Within the last year, cable operator UPC Hungary has demonstrated just how well Internet video services can integrate with traditional pay-TV services, with YouTube naturally proving to be the biggest attraction with subscribers. Last September, UPC Hungary announced that customers were viewing more than one million minutes per day of YouTube content during the first three months of availability on TV, with the average viewing time per session at about 45 minutes.
To make YouTube available on existing STBs, UPC Hungary virtualized boxes’ functionality in the cloud, using the CloudTV Streamcast platform from ActiveVideo. But what was the overall approach that enabled UPC to deploy the service so quickly? What cloud infrastructure was implemented to ensure the network could keep up with sharp spikes in demand for more video?

IoT applications in every industry are abounding. Embedded systems, tools, and cloud services companies are responding with a variety of hardware, software, and development kits to accelerate IoT development. Is the IoT application itself represent enough differentiation? Or must there be features and capabilities within the app to provide differentiation at the cost of time to market? Join us as a panel of IoT experts discuss buy versus innovate trade-offs with IoT application to balance differentiation with time to market pressures.
