ISR Video Processing System
FOR SURVEILLANCE AND TARGETING IMAGE PROCESSING
Curtiss-Wright’s ISR Video Processing System (VPS) combines leading-edge technologies in Intel multi-core CPUs, NVIDIA GPGPUs, and Xilinx FPGAs to provide users with powerful signal processing capabilities in a compact, embedded 6U VPX format. The VPS processing engine is applicable to a variety of image-based targeting and surveillance systems.
The VPS incorporates two Intel Xeon D 16-core DSPs, each outfitted with 128 GBytes of DDR4 memory, providing a total of 1740 GFLOPs of AVX2 vector peak performance. There are two graphic processing modules each with an NVIDIA Quadro Maxwell-2 GPGPU for almost 6 TFLOPS of CUDA signal processing (option to upgrade to NVIDIA Quadro Pascal GPGPU).
The two Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA Frame Grabber XMCs provide the VPS with flexible image capture interfaces in a variety of digital and analog formats. There are two removable memory cartridges (RMC) with SATA 3.0 interfaces that provide up to 8 TB of total solid-state disk (SSD) Flash storage. The VPS supports Gigabit Ethernet, serial ports, USB, and a variety of discrete interfaces.
The compact VPS system is packaged in a rugged 5-slot 6U OpenVPX MPMC-965x Multi-Platform Modular Computer (MPMC). Besides the GPGPU and DSP modules, there is a spare slot for additional functionality to meet customer application requirements. The MPMC-965x’s two fans cool the high-performance modules and a top hat holds the two RMC cartridges.
The VPS is a rugged compact high-performance image processor with the flexibility to interface with multiple simultaneous video input channels in a variety of image formats. It provides teraflops of vector image processing that was not previously available in much larger systems.
