Multi-Plane Architectures in High-End Embedded Defense Systems

The needs of embedded defense computing platforms are accelerating: to acquire more data and arrange and process it more quickly, with the goal of extracting actionable information immediately and making it available in real time to the user who needs it -- the .

As technology advances, novel system architectures are arising to address these pressing challenges. This paper discusses , which have distinct advantages for embedded defense applications.

architectures represent significant cost and time savings to system architects and developers. By ensuring that different classes of inter-module transactions are kept on physically independent media, the systems architect can avoid such onerous tasks as data management and quality-of-service assurance on a single high-bandwidth data pipe.
