As military system developers balance a thirst for performance versus issues like legacy, life cycles and market acceptance, five lead processor architectures top their list.

We deep now into the era where large amounts of system functionality of military systems are implemented as software running on single board computers or in box-level subsystems. That trend will only ramp up making embedded processors ever more critical in defense systems. The days of hardwired electronic assemblies are long gone. To get an understanding of which processor architectures lead the pack these days we researched a selection of both advanced military programs and tech upgrade ones.
