HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 24 March 2013. NATO military technology researchers needed real-time digital signal processing (DSP) capability for demonstration of a synthetic aperture sonar data for adaptive track spacing and target detection on an autonomous vehicle. They found their solution from GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala.

The Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) segment of the NATO Science & Technology Organization in La Spezia, Italy, used the GE MAGIC1 rugged display computer for the synthetic aperture sonar demonstration, GE officials announced at the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose, Calif
