Abstract : Develop Expandable Victor Accelerator (EVA) and its hardware and software capable of processing range and range rate data, digital focus, real- time Kalman filtering, real-time target motion resolution (TMR), and processing image/pattern information for real-time optical trackers of multi-munitions scenes. EVA consists of two major but tightly coupled components, a Vector Processing Hardware (VPH) and a Cascadable Processing Hardware (CPH). VPH is a speed optimized architecture capable of processing vectors of complex data. The architecture is based upon the utilization of multiple Zoran VSP-325 chips. CPH is also a speed optimized. However, the architecture is configured for those applications where the concern for high precision and wide dynamic range is at a premium. CPH hardware utilizes multiple Bipolar Integrated B2110/B2120 and multiple 12x14 CrossBar custom chips. VPH was fabricated, completed and demonstrated successfully as proposed. However, CPH is incomplete with only 70% of the design accomplished. The Cross Bar custom chips were fabricated and completed.
