Paper Abstract

Most of the compute intensive SDI problem solving processors, (such as the adaptive deformable mirror processor used to compensate for atmospheric turbulence, the battle management processor(s) for ballistic missile defense, signal processor(s) for radar range/Doppler ambiguity function calculation, and many others), rely on a common set of algorithms found in numerical matrix algerbra. Typically, all of these problems are broken up into a set of linear equations where it is the processors task to solve this set. Algorithmic solutions range from the extensive use of the Fast Fourier Transform to the robust Singular Value Decomposition method. Over the past several years considerable research has been focused on the use of systolic arrays, which, when configured correctly, will process these algorithms at extremely high speeds and with great algorithmic efficiency.
