Research Institution
The objective of this project is to develop additional capabilities in software tools, in order to map advanced BMD signal processing algorithms to next-generation COTS signal processing hardware, within the context of open standards programming APIs. Specifically we propose to focus on advanced Moving Target Indicator (MTI) algorithms, MTI variants with tightly integrated imaging. The primary target of such mappings will be two-dimensional single-chip fine-grained processor arrays. We will implement additions to parallel program optimization and mapping algorithms based on the polyhedral model, as implemented in the Reservoir R-Stream compiler. These optimization and mapping improvements will serve to take better account of the two-dimensional topology of the hardware processor array. This will result in significant improvements to the ability to implement certain computationally intense portions of radar signal processing algorithms, increasing capabilities and decreasing development costs.
