Paper Abstract

Planned growth in the coming decade of Navy combat systems will generate signal processing performance requirements that far exceed the capability of the current Navy standard signal processor. There is a further need to improve the programming environment of Navy standard signal processors to increase programmer productivity. The Navy has initiated development of a second generation standard signal processor, the Enhanced Modular Signal Processor (EMSP), nomenclatured as the AN/UYS-2. This paper describes the Navy program to develop the EMSP as a multi-processor signal processing system. The approach to specifying system performance and programming environment along with an acquisition approach meant to encourage vigorous competition for the engineering development contract award is discussed. The commodity management concept for EMSP's in-service lifetime involves interface management within the system and controlled technology infusion. This important plan to stay abreast of technology and to meet user community requirements for product stability is described.
