Abstract
Crossfield Technology proposes to develop an IEEE 1451 plug-and-play OpenVPX SIGINT data acquisition system with FMC sensor interfaces and low-latency, high-bandwidth FDR InfiniBand network connections to a signal processing HPC cluster. The digitizers will be synchronized to nanosecond-level precision using IEEE 1588 with the submarine"s onboard atomic clock. The VPX system will RDMA directly from FPGA memory to user-space memory or GPU memory in the HPC cluster with zero copy latency. Overall, the finished system will be the state-of-the-art in compact, high-speed data acquisition technology.
