Curtiss-Wright introduces new solutions for ISR/EW applications

21st February 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Curtiss-Wright has added three NVIDIA Pascal GPGPU modules to its line of advanced performance boards and integrated systems for compute-intensive high performance embedded computing (HPEC) applications such as electronic warfare (EW), SIGINT and radar, the company announced on 15 February.

The 3U VPX3-4923 and 6U VPX6-4943 OpenVPX processor cards and the XMC-4902 XMC processor mezzanine module provide system integrators with powerful options to speed and ease the deployment of CUDA and OpenCL-based solutions into rugged C4ISR systems.

These pre-validated and pre-integrated modules significantly reduce the programme risk associated with developing complex HPEC systems. Time to deployment is also significantly reduced since system integrators have faster access to COTS modules, development platforms, and fully integrated HPEC systems, all supported by Curtiss-Wright’s OpenHPEC Accelerator Suite of software tools to expedite development-to-deployment.

These modules can ingest massive amounts of data from modern radar, SIGINT, EO/IR sensors and are ideal for ISR and EW applications that require TFLOPS of accelerated processing.
