Abstract:

Avionic systems currently used within the interceptor segment continue to carry a high development and deployment price tag. Bulky configurations with heavier than necessary subsystems and components limit the range and missions they can be directed to. Present and future threats demand orders of magnitude higher performance and bandwidths from computing and electronics systems while operating hostile radiation type environments. The real and present challenge is to equip interceptor and missile systems with high performance avionics modules capable of fulfilling a broad range of missions while meeting radiation and space environmental requirements conforming as well to cost, power, weight, and volume constraints. The opportunity and innovative approach for addressing the above challenge is the implementation of low cost, compact, high performance Commercial‐Off‐The‐Shelf (COTS) processing systems, components, and fault detection/correction algorithms ‐ architected and enhanced for optimal operation in radiation prone environments. Leveraging work and results from Dependable Multiprocessor (DM) efforts; adapting and optimizing fault detection and correction algorithms; selecting low power ‐ Giga‐Hertz capable processing nodes; implementing electronics least susceptible to SEU events; and, by deriving a multi‐node, multiprocessor, redundant, distributive network architecture, will lead to the specification and development of the Next Generation Rad‐Tolerant COTS Flight Processing System.
