Colorado Engineering, Inc. (CEI) proposes to combine its extensive expertise with embedded hardware and software design with anti-tamper (AT) technology to develop a tamper resistant, heterogeneous, scalable, morphable, reconfigurable/programmable, modular, multiprocessor, embedded computer architecture. The architecture will consist of a microprocessor (MPU), a digital signal processor (DSP), a field programmable gate array (FPGA), and a graphics processing unit (GPU) with integrated power management plus analog-to-digital conversion (ADC). The proposed effort is based upon its existing Reconfigurable Advanced Rapid-prototype Environment (RARE) technology and will result in a tamper-resistant embedded processing system ideal for realizing computationally demanding embedded processing solutions within the tight cost, size, weight, and power (C-SWaP) budgets often dictated by Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and Unmanned Ground Systems (UGS) applications. Additional software-based AT and Information Assurance (IA) features can be added for targeted applications.
