Using Real-Time Sensor Processing Technologies to Enable Accurate Landings

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.

Using Edge GPGPUs in SIG-INT Systems

Military Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) embedded systems are designed to gather and analyze signals, or electronic communications. SIGINT plays a critical role in military operations by providing real-time intelligence on enemy activities and locations, allowing for improved decision-making and tactical advantage. In addition, SIGINT systems can be used for counterintelligence and cybersecurity to gather information on the communications and activities of foreign intelligence agencies, providing important counterintelligence information.
