GE Awarded Air Force Contract

The company will provide high performance embedded computing services.

GE’s Intelligent Platforms business has been awarded a contract to undertake a six-month research program to build open architectures for the United States Air Force.

Over the course of the study, GE will benchmark and optimize the Synthetic Aperture Radar and Ground Moving Target Indicator on multiprocessor high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) systems. It will also develop a lab-based processor system that will use an open system architecture.

“This contract award acknowledges GE’s experience and leadership in the development of High Performance Embedded Computing solutions – including those using GPGPU technology - for the most demanding applications, and the application expertise with which we are able to support our customers,” said David Tetley, manager, HPEC Systems Engineering at GE Intelligent Platforms. “It is an exciting project to be working on as it will help create the radar processor architectures of the future and can have a significant bearing on the operational efficiency and effectiveness of the US Air Force in the years to come.”
