HPEC Vanguard: New tools for complex algorithms - Blog

August 28, 2012
Arthur C. Clarke famously made the observation that “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” In the radar and signal intelligence world, corps of Ph.Ds are regularly developing mathematically complex algorithms that require significantly more processing power than can be deployed in a contemporary embedded COTS system. These algorithms must sit gathering dust in a drawer until Moore’s Law has driven performance densities sufficiently to enable the needed compute power for that class of algorithm. When any given class of applications is made possible, more demanding algorithms follow in their wake. This way of understanding our market highlights the fact that there are two types of applications that embedded military and aerospace system designers typically confront.

3U VPX poised to serve small UAVS - Story

July 27, 2012
As the DoD takes advantage of reductions in SWaP, smaller enclosures, such as 3U VPX, are reaping the benefit. However, today's 3U VPX backplane topologies will need to be retrofitted to fully capitalize on modern processing capabilities.

FAA awards WAAS Safety Computer contract to Verocel - News

July 05, 2012
WASHINGTON. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) officials selected Verocel in Westford, Mass., under a $6.2 million single- source contract to develop the next-generation safety computer for use in the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). Verocel, a software verification company, will ensure that the safety computer will comply with RTCA/DO-178B1 and RTCA/DO-2542 to Level B.
