systems and sensors are embedded into smaller autonomous vehicles such as micro UAVs and portable, wearable electronics. Chris Jobling, Product Manager for GE Intelligent Platforms’ Applied Image Processing group, describes how GE’s design team used a model-based design methodology to produce a fully functional video tracking solution that consumes less than 2W in a footprint slightly smaller than that of one frame of 35mm film.

A live demonstration of this radical new solution will be on display at Booth 1239 of the AUVSI exhibition in Washington, DC from August 16 through August 19, alongside demonstrations of GE's GPGPU multi-core signal processing and HD video compression technologies.

ADEPT spacer GE Intelligent Platforms has been at the forefront of supplying automatic video tracking solutions for the past 20 years, and its size, weight, and power (SWaP) optimized products have
found application in many diverse requirements, from automatic air refueling to military weapon control. Over that time, the automatic video trackers in its ADEPT range have become progressively smaller, lighter, and less power hungry without any decrease in performance.

Increasingly, however, customers have been demanding game-changing degrees of SWaP optimization as video

EC12
Robust, Entry- to Mid-Level 6U CPCI SBC
GE's new EC12 6U CompactPCI Single Board Computer (SBC) with Intel® Celeron® 1.86MHz processor and 2 GBytes of DDR3 memory is designed for embedded computing environments in which entry or mid-level performance is required. The price/performance of the EC12 supports customers wanting to migrate to a new CPU generation by delivering the required levels of capability, functionality and robustness.

10 Gigabit Ethernet and the Military Market
Increasingly, multiple video input devices are appearing on virtually all military platforms to give warfighters and commanders a better view of the field of engagement. This has strained the ability of 1 Gigabit Ethernet (1GbE) to transport streams of video data so that it can be converted into usable field intelligence – and is driving the need for 10GbE.

ICS-1572A
XMC Transceiver Module for Radar, SIGINT & Communications
The new ICS-1572A ADC/DAC transceiver XMC module delivers important advantages that include the ability to perform faster sweeps when scanning for spectral activity; the use of lower cost analog RF equipment; the capability to reduce the cost of the system back-end processing engine; the ability to use electronic ‘steering’ rather than physical array steering; and significant onboard signal processing using the latest Virtex-6 devices.

WHITE PAPERS
Readiness Level Measure Boosted by COTS Computers
Technology readiness level (TRL) and manufacturing readiness level (MRL) can be used to advantage by a systems developer to reduce time to market with new products, improve the value chain of the platform, and make the system developer that much more competitive in the marketplace. Learn how a system developer can leverage the concepts of TRL and MRL to gain market advantage by downloading our new white paper.
