Abstract:

ABSTRACT: Crossfield Technology proposes a Fermi Cluster for Real-Time Hyperspectral Scene Generation. The system architecture features heterogeneous processors for real-time scene generation, a high-throughput (10-40 Gbps), very-low-latency communications fabric, and a synchronous hyperspectral projector interface. A multi-core communications processor with an FPGA coprocessor provides a real-time projector network interface. The system architecture is scalable to hundreds of heterogeneous processors and projector interfaces, and is based on COTS computing and networking technology. BENEFIT: The high-performance NVIDIA Fermi Processor provides state-of-the-art floating-point signal processing capability for real-time scene generation and the Mellanox InfiniBand networking technology provides state-of-the-art network throughput at very low latency. These technologies will enable high-fidelity, physics-based scene generation for hardware-in-the-loop simulation.
