Using Real-Time Sensor Processing Technologies to Enable Accurate Landings

Aircraft carriers are large ships that serve as mobile airbases for military aircraft. They are designed to support a wide range of aircraft, including fighter jets, bombers, helicopters, and other types of aircraft. As such, they require sophisticated systems to support their operations, including high-performance sensor and radar processing systems for precision approach landing systems.

Precision approach landing systems (PALS) are critical for aircraft carriers because they enable pilots to safely land their aircraft on the ship’s flight deck, even in challenging weather conditions. These systems rely on advanced radar and sensor technologies to track the position and movement of aircraft in real-time, as well as to detect and avoid obstacles such as other aircraft, the ship’s superstructure, and other hazards.

To perform these tasks effectively, the sensor and radar processing systems on aircraft carriers need to be highly sophisticated and capable of processing large amounts of data quickly and accurately. This requires the use of powerful processors, specialized software, and advanced algorithms that are optimized for real-time data processing and decision-making.

Embedded GPGPUs modules are increasingly being used in high-performance sensor and radar processing systems on aircraft carriers to support real-time data processing and decision-making. They can be used to accelerate a wide range of applications, including video and image processing, machine learning, and signal processing, which are all critical components of high-performance sensor and radar processing systems on naval ships.

EIZO Rugged Solutions and Cambridge Pixel supply a comprehensive range of radar and camera acquisition, processing, tracking, and display solutions for naval ISR systems. Our radar and sensor processing capabilities include sensor fusion, radar scan conversion, radar video distribution, and configurable radar video display solutions.
