Too Much Data, Not Enough Information
Many manned and unmanned vehicles are designed to stay aloft for long periods of time, carrying heavy payloads of wide-area sensors. The amount of data generated by these sensors is truly enormous. In fact, a large array of high-resolution electro-optical (EO/video) and infrared (IR) cameras aboard a platform can capture billions of pixels per second. All of this raw data must be processed in real time on board the platform to produce actionable data (i.e., a clear image) for the warfighter. This transformation requires multiple compute-intense real-time mathematical manipulations on a huge data set. Furthermore, all of this activity occurs on SWaP-constrained mobile platforms.
Leverage Mercury’s Expertise
Mercury’s Imaging Toolkit offers highly optimized and validated GPU algorithms for on-board exploitation applications. Developed by Mercury’s image processing experts and deployed in numerous imaging programs, the Imaging Toolkit saves countless weeks/months of software design, testing and system integration. Each Imaging Toolkit is tailored to meet a specific application requirement, from optimized image-processing algorithms to hardware, software and system integration with a focus on the highest performance in a SWaP-constrained deployment. In addition, Mercury provides integration services not only with Mercury components, but also with customers and third-party software, hardware and IP.
