Abstract
Future space tracking and surveillance systems are being required to provide ever-increasing sensor resolution and real-time processing of image data. What is needed is a flexible, high performance monolithic computing engine which is rad-hard to 300 krad (Si) and an architecture which is suitable for stream computing on real-time imaging data. Completed Phase 1 tasks, presented a heterogenous multi-processor system-on-chip architecture and performance modeling results that demonstrated a design that addresses these advanced requirements of space based acquisision and tracking applications. Phase II efforts will create a high level SystemC/TLM based model of the architecture giving payload designers the ability to simulate specific image processing algorithims and system trade-offs (# of simutaneous targets tracked, image resolution, frame rate). Design configuation tools will also be developed to automate the configuration design and verification process, allowing for rapid delivery of customizable compute platforms. Industry standard GPP, DSP, and on-chip interconnect fabric standards will be targeted to an IBM 45nm SOI process. Process selection, rad-hard-by-design cell library and logic design techniques will be used to create an initial RTL SoC designs.
