Research Institution
Design_Net Engineering will develop an “Application Configurable Radiation Hardened Processor/Memory Node” for use in high end control, sensor processing, and sensor fusion applications. DNet will build on an existing design developed under other MDA and AFRL contracts, add the Wafer Scale Signal Processor capable of Gflop/watt performance to our Modular Reconfigurable Avionics (MRA) system and create an extended memory module to act as data storage in the system. The unit is compatible with the newly developed SPA interface standards for Plug-n-Play avionics and will be flight qualified as part of the PnPSat program. At the end of Phase II DNet will have built a flight ready unit, available to the AFRL PnP technology satellite test program. Once flown in PnPSat the processor/memory node will be ready for use in real world applications for ORS. The product is unique in its use of state of the art components, in its compactness, its ready configurability, and its ability to adapt to both highly DSP intensive processes, and high-end control applications or Command and Data Handling (C&DH) work.
