Abstract
Coherent Logix, Incorporated proposes the development of a closely coupled imaging sensor and massively parallel processor that will enable a new level of autonomous operation of Unmanned Air Systems. The HARRIER system will provide a computing architecture that supports advanced computer vision algorithms for robust object tracking both in the air and on the ground/sea. This combination of hardware and software algorithms will result in a camera system with the capability to processes selected regions of interest at a high rate that is sufficient for the sense and avoid function. The base hardware platform for HARRIER will be the SAFER camera currently being developed on another DoD program; this proposal leverages the close integration of the sCMOS sensor and the HyperX computing fabric. Close coupling of the compute function with the sensor enables a high bandwidth data flow path without excessive cabling, low latency and pipelined data flow with per frame feedback to sensor acquisition parameters, and the ability to run analysis and encoding at the point where the full depth of information is available. In addition the HARRIER camera will be software reconfigurable and programmed using industry standard ANSI C and Message Passing Interface parallel processing protocol.
