Abstract:

As part of a continuing search for the ideal architecture for performing the computations required to realize a non-linear filter, we have developed software for various machines over the past ten years. A description of the latest software is given in 1, while 2, 3, and 4 are useful for background information on the non-linear filtering problem as well as comments about software efficiencies relevant to various machines. We started our studies over 10 years ago using the CDC 6600 at the Aerospace Corporation and Kirkland AFB, and continuing at Eglin AFB, see 4. At the Institute for Advanced Computation, we gained access to the illiac IV and of ICASE, NASA Langley, the Star 100, see 2. Access to the Cray was obtained through Cray Research and later NCAR. Experiments on the AP120B array processor were possible because of the acquisition of one here at USC used in conjunction with a PDP 11-55.
