Abstract:

This report documents an exploratory study of potential impacts of electro-optic EO interconnect and switching technologies for highly demanding defense computing applications. The analysis reported address both future high-resolution wide-area synthetic aperture radar SAT image formation processing, and also processing for advanced methods of automatic target recognition ATR. The results show high-speed interconnects reduce raw computing power requirements by up to 20 for some SAR applications and can save more than 100 GB memory in ATR applications
