Sensor Open Systems Architecture (SOSA): Enabling the next generation of flexible and adaptable radar systems
In order to keep up with the continued acceleration of new technology and to be able to protect the warfighter from the latest threats, it is essential that we can turn our deployed platforms into adaptable entities that can evolve over time and are not static. The SOSA [Sensor Open Systems Architecture] Technical Standard is the next major step in realizing this goal.
Designing a general-purpose FPGA DSP card for EW, radar applications using the latest generation of FPGAs
Designing a general-purpose FPGA card that addresses the universe of Electronic Warfare (EW) and radar applications is a challenge. For any individual application, defining the requirements of the system and determining the optimal architecture for that particular solution is fairly straightforward. However, the problem is much more complex when trying to target a wide spectrum of use cases with a single FPGA module. The goal is to provide a flexible architecture that also enables the use of the latest FPGA features.
