Title: Network-Based Parallel Retrieval Onboard Computing Environment for Sensor Systems Deployed on NASA Unmanned Aircraft Systems
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX13CA38P
Award Amount: $124,990.00
 

Abstract:

Remote Sensing Solutions proposes to develop the Network-based Parallel Retrieval Onboard Computing Environment for Sensor Systems (nPROCESS) for deployment on NASA's unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). The nPROCESS will provide a compact, efficient, reconfigurable computing environment that will achieve unparalleled real-time data processing, acquisition and distribution to provide new observations and improved sensitivity; provide a test-bed for measurement and algorithm development and testing for future mission risk reduction and demonstration; produce critical information for real-time decision making; and facilitate a path to reduce risks and installation / operational costs for deployment of new and existing sensors on NASA UAS platforms. The proposed innovations to realize nPROCESS are: (1) reconfigurable, object orientated system architecture that will provides far greater customization and expansion, (2) modularity at the hardware, firmware and software levels to adapt to the sensors needs at minimum cost and (3) high fidelity parallel processing and data distribution capabilities. Deployed with the HIWRAP on the NASA Global Hawk, nPROCESS will provide higher quality and real-time mapping of the three-dimensional wind profiles, ocean vector surface maps and precipitation winds within tropical cyclones.
