Paper Abstract

A generic mission for an autonomous fire-and-forget brilliant munition is presented and used to identify the functions that an embedded signal processor must perform. Based on these functions and other operational factors (such as weather, larger search areas, lower false alarm rates, and munition maneuverability), the processing loads in bits/second, messages/second, operations/second, and instructions/second are derived. The paper concludes with an evaluation of general implementation issues, such as the requirements for data fusion, distributed and parallel processing architectures, trusted software, and low-cost hardware.
