Abstract
Assessments of R&D involving a proprietary multiprocessor computer, a single board computer, a shared-memory computer design and a high-speed multi-path communication architecture are presented along with some benchmarking results. Conclusions are that DND should perform direct computer hardware R&D only in specialized niches where very restrictive weight, fault-tolerance, etc. requirements force it to do so. In most cases, Canadian Forces needs would best be served by maintaining Canadian industry's ability to integrate Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) hardware into ruggedized, flexible computing systems, and by influencing standardization processes to ensure that future standard COTS equipment will be able to fulfill defence-specific requirements.
