Paper Abstract

To address the emergent needs of military and security users, a new design approach has been developed to enable the rapid development of high performance and low cost imaging and processing systems. In this paper, information about the "Bespoke COTS" design approach is presented and is illustrated using examples of systems that have been built and delivered. This approach facilitates the integration of standardised COTS components into a customised yet flexible systems architecture to realise user requirements within stringent project timescales and budgets. The paper also discusses the important area of the design trade-off space (performance, flexibility, quality, and cost) and compares the results of the Bespoke COTS approach to design solutions derived from more conventional design processes.
