How much information?


Study conducted by the global information industry center at the University of California,
San Diego.


Study looked at only the amount of information U.S. residents consumed in the their
homes and outside the home for non
-
work
-
related reasons.


Study found that the average American spent about 12 hours digesting 34 Gigabytes (one
byte of information is equivalent to one letter of text) of information daily in 2008.






"Considering that on average we work for almost three hours a day [at home] and sleep for seven, this means
that three quarters of our waking time in the home is receiving information, much of it electronic," the authors
write.



Yearly, the American info habit consumes 3.6
zettabytes
,

or 3.6 billion trillion bytes.



To put that in perspective, if 3.6
zettabytes

of text were

printed in books and stacked tightly across the continental

United States and Alaska, it would create a pile 7
-
feet high

(2 meters).

Obsolescence


Significant Issue for Aging Army Systems



Many fielded Army systems are struggling with obsolescence issues.
In some cases the cost and lead
-
time for the parts are extreme. There
are many opportunities to re
-
design these obsolete parts with more
modern, available, and less expensive components. In many cases
the cost and lead
-
times can be reduced by >50% using modern
technologies and in some cases COTS.


In many cases there is a lack of use rights that excludes competition


The obsolescence
-
related business opportunities are not limited to US
Army systems. Many foreign militaries rely on US Army systems;
some still in US Army inventory and others that are no longer in the
US Army inventory. These countries are interested in solutions for
obsolete parts as well. In most cases these customers are interested
in small quantities (less than 100).


Older weapon systems use out dated technologies, system
requirements, and system designs

Cyber Security




In developed countries information technology is vital and pervasive




Such dependence has a corresponding vulnerability




Cyber Security activities are absolutely essential (Military, Industry, Personal Lives)

A Realistic Measurement Of Cyber War Strength Must Include All Three Factors


The Less Wired A Nation Is, The Higher Its Score On Dependence


Cyber Dependence Is A Disadvantage In A Cyber War


Nation State Assessment By Richard Clarke (Former National Coordinator For
Security, Infrastructure Protection, And Counterterrorism For President Clinton):

“The U.S. economy and government are the most dependent in the world
on the Internet and therefore the most vulnerable to cyber attacks.”

Obsolescence

Obsolescence Challenges







Affects the system


Requirements, Software, Hardware, …


In many cases the Government does not own the drawing package from
the OEM
or does not have the complete TDP


Restricted technical data packages prevent fair and open competition


Data rights for the OEM part when software is involved


Ability to pass functional tests using legacy test equipment that tests tight
tolerances


Test equipment can have proprietary claims too


Government specification changes (relax requirements?)


Keeping production/manufacturing costs low for small quantities


Outsourcing of the semiconductor industry


Source code was developed without regard to the past 20 years modern
software engineering processes


Outdated design and system architectures


Semiconductor industry moves in 3 to 4 year cycles when evolving
technologies

Obsolescence

Obsolescence Mitigation

Best Practices/Considerations








Ensure full and open rights of technical data packages


Use best of industry system engineering guidelines


Reconsider the original system/component requirements to allow
“wiggle room” for modern solutions


Architectures that encapsulate and modularize


Common design components


Use modern technologies to reduce material component count


FPGAs to replace complete obsolete designs


Teaming opportunities between industry and government


Development


Small quantity production

Challenges



Mobile Device (e.g.
iPad
) Operating System changes annually


Information Assurance (IA) issue


Air Worthiness Release (AWR) issue


Pilots will want to run their military applications on their personal (i.e.
non
-
secure) devices; must protect sensitive aircraft performance
related data


IA issue
