Abstract:

This research specifies and validates a new concurrent decomposition scheme, called Confined Space Search Decomposition CSSD, to exploit parallelism of Radar Data Processing algorithms using a Distributed Computational System. To formalize the specification we propose and apply an object-oriented methodology called Decomposition Cost Evaluation Model DCEM. To reduce the penalties of load imbalance we propose a distributed dynamic load balance heuristic called Object Reincarnation OR. To validate the research we first compare our decomposition with an identified alternative using the proposed DCEM model and then develop a theoretical prediction of selected parameters. We also develop a simulation to check the Object Reincarnation Concept.
