Budget cuts spur use of rugged COTS systems - Story

January 29, 2014
As the U.S. defense budget shrinks, the military's appetite for rugged Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products will continue to grow. The services can no longer afford the protracted development schedules and massive cost overruns often associated with new programs.

AFRL to use rugged HPEC system from GE - News

January 07, 2014
HUNTSVILLE, AL. Officials at the High Performance Systems Branch (RITB) with the US Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL's) Information Directorate selected computing systems from GE Intelligent Platforms for the development and eventual deployment of advanced neuromorphic architectures and algorithms for implementing adaptive learning, large-scale dynamic data analytics, and reasoning.

SWaP changes image processing - Story

December 17, 2013
Situational awareness is essential for survival on the battlefield. But while satellites and large surveillance resources packed with sensors and signal processing hardware serve the needs of higher echelons, it has traditionally been difficult to get data to small detachments and individual soldiers within tactical timelines.

PCI Express switches to P2P in OpenVPX - Story

October 10, 2013
Of all the serial switched fabrics in OpenVPX systems, PCI Express (PCIe) has perhaps the least sex appeal. PCI has, after all, been at the heart of PC architectures from time immemorial – and its offspring, PCI Express, continues to play a key role in modern PCs. But for OpenVPX systems designers in the know, PCIe’s an invaluable asset – especially since an important limitation has been addressed: The Peer-To-Peer (P2P) performance challenge.

4G Core i7 boards: Best of both worlds - Story

September 10, 2013
For High-Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) applications with very tight space constraints, OpenVPX is the logical technology choice and 3U is the logical form factor. High-speed serial links like PCI Express and Gigabit Ethernet also make sense.

Rugged display computer enables synthetic aperture sonar - Product

The MAGIC1 rugged display computer from GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, AL, provides processing capability for signal processing intensive applications such as radar, sonar, and image processing.

Capturing, processing, and transmitting video: Opportunities and challenges - Story

July 31, 2013
The proliferation of unmanned vehicle platforms ? in the air, on the ground, and in the water ? has provided an unparalleled opportunity to expand intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance operations. Choosing the optimal blend of functionality, performance, reliability, and cost is the key challenge in optimizing the use of video. Meanwhile, key considerations include sensor processing location trends, video fusion, and video compression and bandwidth, in addition to Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP).
