In May, GE Intelligent Platforms announced the opening of a High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) Center of Excellence (CoE). Designed to provide a focus for the future development of a range of powerful, flexible products and solutions for military/aerospace embedded computing, its primary goal is to support customer demand for high TRL (technology readiness level) COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) solutions that can shorten time-to-market, minimize cost and help to eliminate program risk, allowing prime contractors, system integrators and OEMs to focus on value-add and create competitive advantage.

GE Intelligent Platforms already has an extensive range of HPEC solutions designed for the harsh, demanding environments that are typical of military deployments.

These include focused board level solutions, complete sub-systems, and an expanding software development environment that takes advantage of GE’s AXIS – Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software.

The HPEC CoE will also support the development of custom systems that are configured, tested and integrated with software to meet specific customer needs. Additionally, consulting services will be available through the HPEC CoE that can help customers with architecture definition, application development and performance optimization. It will also create application-focused algorithms for use in performance and capability demonstrations which can be provided to customers to assist in their development process.

Mil/Aero Insider interviewed David Tetley and Peter Thomson, two key figures at GE’s HPEC CoE, to find out more about what the Center offers.

How the US Army’s VICTORY initiative is shaping the future
The US Army’s VICTORY (Vehicular Integration for C4ISR/EW Interoperability) initiative reflects the DoD’s commitment to Modular Open Systems (Architectures (MOSA) and looks to leverage COTS hardware and software and open standards to eliminate redundancy and deliver more in-vehicle space by reducing size, weight and power (SWaP). Jay Labhart, Advance Engineering manager, looks at GE’s involvement.

 HPEC in the Press
GE has featured regularly in media coverage of HPEC
Given the breadth and depth of GE’s HPEC offering, it’s no surprise that GE has become a regular contributor on the subject in the mil/aero press. Michael Stern’s ‘HPEC 101’ published by Extension Media can be found here, and Peter Thompson’s COTS Journal analysis of the factors to consider when evaluating OpenVPX system bandwidths can be found here.

HPEC Starter Systems

Developing, testing and deploying sophisticated multiprocessor HPEC applications in the minimum time and at the lowest possible cost is a significant challenge. In response, GE recently

announced the HARP – HPEC Application Ready Platform – family of MOSA-compliant, pre-integrated, pre-validated systems that are designed to minimize time to market. Click here for more information.
