Manned and unmanned aircraft system designers use Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) to map and image terrain. SAR can also function as a surveillance device to track and identify moving objects. SAR technology has great potential for use in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) but the amount and size of the super-computer level of processing needed to [...]
High-performance Element Processing Architecture can now be employed as a basis for large array radar systems, enabling system designers to increase levels of digitization by using open standards based hardware. The advent of OpenVPX and its flexible and scalable architecture now makes it possible for military system integrators to improve total cost of ownership of radar systems.
