Abstract:

Intuitive Research and Technology Corporation (INTUITIVE) is proposing to conduct experimental and analytical efforts to demonstrate proof-of-principle of Field Intuitive Research and Technology Corporation (INTUITIVE) is proposing to conduct experimental and analytical efforts to demonstrate proof-of-principle of Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology as avionics performance enhancing technology. Currently, state of the art missile systems have three separate Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) for seeker image processing, flight computing, and communications. FPGA-based High Performance Avionics (F-HPA) will combine these three LRU's on a single circuit card; significantly reducing weight, cost, and power consumption while dramatically increasing reliability and maintainability. Further, FPGAs provide and inherent anti-tamper capability, which is accomplished with 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encrypted FPGA configuration streams and encrypted chip-to-chip communication. FPGAs also provide extremely high performance computing for certain types of algorithms. 200 Mega-pixels per second image processing is well within current FPGA technology capabilities.
