Abstract
As Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance systems continue to be developed with increased capabilities, the amount of data to be processed and stored becomes a growing concern. Likewise, disseminating the volumes of data for interpretation by the user becomes increasingly difficult. A need exists for an integrated processing and storage system that will allow on-board data processing to effectively "filter" the data that is eventually sent to the user. Likewise, a system with increased memory capacity is required to allow more data to be captured and processed before down linking to the user. This system should be low power, maximize memory density (Gbytes/in3) and be extremely lightweight. Of course, for such a system, reliability is a number one concern. For space based operations, the system must be space radiation hardened and implement appropriate error detection and correction to efficiently correct for radiation induced errors. Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) is in a unique position to propose an extremely innovative solution to this problem by leveraging our on-going, leading edge data acquisition, storage, and System on Chip (SoC) activities to develop an integrated data processing and storage system to develop the Hyper-Memory System (HMS), proposed herein.
