Paper Abstract

Advanced algorithms for synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging have in the past required computing capabilities only available from high performance special purpose hardware. Such architectures have tended to have short life cycles with respect to development expense. Current generation Massively Parallel Processors (MPP) are offering high performance capabilities necessary for such applications with both a scalable architecture and a longer projected life cycle. In this paper we explore issues associated with implementation of a SAR imaging algorithm on a mesh configured MPP architecture.
