USAF Next-Gen Radar Platforms Focus of New Project

March 27, 2015
GE’s Intelligent Platforms was awarded a contract to develop new radar technologies for the US Air Force.

Defining the open architectures for future generations of onboard US Air Force platforms is the impetus behind a contract given to GE’s Intelligent Platforms to develop new support technologies. The six-month research program will involve the optimization of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and ground-moving-target-indicator (GMTI) radar modes on multiprocessor high-performance embedded-computing (HPEC) systems.

GE’s HPEC Center of Excellence (CoE) will focus on the demand for high-technology readiness level (TRL) commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions that support rapid deployment. The study will also include the development of a lab-passed processor system for rugged deployment on USAF platforms. This will embrace the open system architecture (OSA) approach currently used in standard hardware and software.

The GE Center also supports the development of custom systems for specific customer needs. Consulting services are available to help with architecture definition, application development, and performance optimization. Application-focused algorithms can even be created for use in performance and capability demonstrations.

GE has a wide range of HPEC solutions designed for harsh military environments, including board-level solutions, complete subsystems, and an expanding software-development environment based on GE’s AXIS—Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software.
