Paper Abstract

This paper presents a discussion of some of the consideration in the development of an architecture for post focal plane signal processing using distributed programmable data processors. The resulting architecture employs a series of modules from which a signal processing system can be constructed based on the required sensor data rates. An analysis of a typical scenario is performed to show how a specific processing requirement can be defined using statistical modeling concepts. This analysis relates the number of memory/processing elements in the system to the number of objects in the field of view, the number of sensors and their format, and to the sampling rate of the sensor signal processing system.
