Abstract:

Highly parallel architectures are developed to meet the increasing demanding throughput requirements of DoD signal processing applications. In particular, to perform multi-dimensional Kalman filtering at sample rates approaching 15 KHz, innovative techniques are presented to partition the problem for real-time implementation. A unique decoupling of the predictor and corrector equations in the Kalman filter is developed to speed up computations by two 2 orders of magnitude 100x. The proposed parallel algorithms and architectures are well suited for recursive filtering, image and signal processing for next generation instrument radar and telemetry equipment.
