Abstract
The United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA) is searching for a software-defined multi-channel radar receiver that would provide improved performance and added flexibility over currently deployed radar systems. In response, MaXentric is proposing a system codenamed MASR (Manycore Adaptive Software Radar). The MASR system is composed of a hierarchy of X-band front-ends, high-speed digitizers, FPGAs, and Manycore processors that can be reconfigured and scaled to fit the requirements of individual applications. MASR will benefit the MDA with its high degree of flexibility in allowing many different radar algorithms as well as different beamforming structures, which will in turn greatly enhance MASR equipped radar systems in their ability to acquire, track, and identify ballistic missile threats.
