Exelis to Showcase Leading Technologies at AAAA 2014

Exelis (NYSE:XLS) will showcase its industry-leading technologies at the 2014 Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) Mission Solutions Summit in Nashville, Tennessee, May 4-6.

“As the threat landscape evolves and our customers’ adversaries become more sophisticated, so must our solutions,” said Andy Dunn, vice president of business development for the Exelis integrated electronic warfare solutions business. “As a leader in electronic warfare and critical networks, Exelis continues to meet the changing needs of the warfighter through multifunction and networked solutions, which will be featured at AAAA Mission Solutions Summit.”

Among the Exelis technologies on display at AAAA:

  • ALQ-136 Helicopter Radio frequency Self-protection Systems
    Customers increasingly turn to Exelis to provide advanced self-protection solutions for their rotary wing aircraft as the missions of these helicopters change in the new battle space. Exelis has produced mission-enabling electronic warfare (EW) technologies for U.S. and allied forces for more than 50 years. They provide advanced EW capabilities for large, strategic long-range aircraft including the B-1B and B-52, air superiority fighter aircraft such as the F-18E/F and F-16s, and special operations MH-47, MH-60 and AH-64D Apache helicopters.
  • Missile Warning System (AN/AAR-60(V)2)
    Advanced missile warning systems and countermeasures against infrared-guided missiles have become vital for survivability. The AN/AAR-60 (V) 2 is a proven, passive, true-imaging sensor device optimized to detect the radiation in the spectral band emitted from an approaching hostile missile exhaust plume.
  • Network Electronic Warfare Capability (NEWC)
    With the constantly changing EW landscape, advanced technologies are required to provide the warfighter with full-dimensional situational awareness to support mission success. NEWC is designed to allow each rotary wing platform to receive and transmit aircraft survivability, situational awareness and threat information as a networked application — enabling the sharing of critical information with several helicopters at once.
  • RAILS (Radar assisted instrument landing system), Airspace Management Radar
    Leveraging more than six decades of innovation and experience in radar solutions, Exelis provides the most advanced open architecture and active array antenna technologies. The airborne, land-based, shipboard and coastal surveillance radars provide actionable intelligence to protect warfighters, key assets and territorial waters. Air traffic management mobile, transportable and fixed-site radars also provide airspace management for first responders, the digital battlefield, and dual use airfields.
  • Next Generation Radio-voice Interoperability
    C4i Next Generation Radio, Voice and Interoperable solutions are the leading-edge technology of Voice over Internet Protocol (IP) with enhanced capabilities for mission-critical applications. The solutions provide defense organizations with the ability to communicate reliably and securely across the seas or the skies, reducing the time needed to respond to threats.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo. It’s creating global market turbulence.
