Making the case for using ATCA in military signal processing - Story

Data in the modern battlefield has become as essential as munitions. Detection, target tracking, and the decisions that must be made ? based on data acquired from sensors and cameras mounted to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or a myriad of radar and sonar devices on a cruiser ? all require sophisticated algorithms executing on powerful computing equipment. Traditional methods of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) have used specialized FPGA equipment, multiprocessor VME, and OpenVPX solutions, but a new class of computing has the potential to replace some of those expensive and highly specialized processing elements.
