Abstract:

The aim of signals intelligence SIGINT is to gather information about electronic emitters in the battlefield. The goal of the Polymorphous Computing Architecture PCA program was to develop the computing foundation for agile systems by having systems that will morph to changing missions, sensor configurations, and operational constraints during a mission or over the life of the platform. Two PCA architectures were evaluated The Tera-op Reliable Intelligently Adaptive Processing System TRIPS from the University of Texas and the Morphable Networked Architecture MONARCH from Raytheon. It was determined that the architecture that was most suitable for this application was the MONARCH architecture. The SIGINT application chosen was wideband direction finding. In this report, a discussion of a wideband direction finding algorithm is discussed and how it was modified for a pipelined architecture. The resulting algorithm is then mapped onto MONARCH to determine MONARCH hardware requirements.
