Soldiers and Unattended Sensors can gain a significant advantage from advances in camera technology and automated image processing techniques. The processing and resource requirements to utilize these advances, however, impose an unacceptable burden in terms of power consumption and/or weight. The proposed technology addresses this deficit by the active and dynamic control of power consumption through the selective activation of system resources according to the time-varying immediate processing requirements of the active image processing algorithm(s). Thus, QuickFlex's pioneering innovation will aid our war fighters by enabling their access to valuable real-time information that is otherwise impractical. The proposed system will leverage and extend proven QuickFlex technology to dynamically manage system power consumption according to the instantaneous resource requirements of the processing algorithm in reconfigurable technologies. To maximize the benefit, the Company's proposed solution will manage the on-chip resources of the processor as well as I/O and other system resources to achieve the lowest possible power consumption while maintaining required processing throughput.
