The fusion of high-performance graphics chips and multicore computing platforms is yielding lower costs, enhanced performance, and easier maintenance via common hardware components in real-time radar video display applications.
Radar and sonar systems are hugely complex animals. They don’t just rely on garden-variety single board computers; they need sensor processor front ends, intermediate signal converters, legacy military interfaces, graphics processors, and other functions. Rob Hoyecki cautions that because of the complexities involved, it’s advisable to stick with a single systems integrator to pull all these bits together.
A qualitative look at what may become 2007’s most compelling tech stories
Recent worldwide events have shown that we can no longer wait for Software Defined Radios (SDRs) in military and civilian applications. For once, the obstacle is neither perception nor technology – it’s simply a matter of money. And not tha...
