With lives on the line, Everything Gets Mission Critical   [ MP3:  14.7 MB ]

A discussion of how embedded hardware modules, operating systems, development tools, and engineering methodologies ALL must be designed with "mission criticality" in mind during war time. In this E-cast, we will also take a look at some of the techniques employed by leading embedded systems and tools vendors to assure that front line equipment employs best practices to assure maximum lethality against the adversarywith maximum survivability to our own personnel.
