Abstract:

Not Available BMDO has been entrusted with the responsibility of protecting citizens and assets from missile attack. Many of the systems developed under BMDO¿s TMD and NMD focus areas require high speed correlation, often in a compact package. The performance requirements of high-end BMDO correlation-centric applications (e.g., target recognition/registration, control) often exceed the capabilities of the existing technology base. In response to this challenge, the FFT/Correlation Accelerator Technology (FCAT) is proposed. FCAT is a revolutionary enabling technology, based on the proposer¿s advanced ASAP technology currently being developed under a NIST ATP award in partnership with VLSI Technology, Inc. ASAP has been demonstrated to be an ideal technology for implementing complex multiply-accumulate algorithms, such as a correlator. In Phase I, it is shown that ASAP is fully capable of performing Fourier transforms and correlation at speeds which are at least 8¿ to 16¿ faster than currently available from existing DSP processors with the same silicon investment. The Phase I study will begin the FCAT implementation process, and will result in the design definition and integration of the core element of the FCAT technology. An optional Phase I study will position FCAT for implementation as a COTS CBIC in Phase II.
