SKYbolt Enables Real Time Processing

SKY Computers, a subsidiary of Analogic Corp., said that U.K.-based BAE Systems has utilized SKY's comprehensive SKYbolt II multicomputer for the development of a new radar signal processing system for naval surveillance and target indication. BAE has tapped SKY to lessen the size of its system from six chassis of proprietary hardware to a single chassis of commercial components while concurrently upgrading real time processing response.

The program encompassed developing standards-based software that performs all of the necessary required radar signal processing functions used for naval surveillance and target indication. Running on the SKYbolt II COTS hardware, the program was tested by running the new software-based signal processor on the SKYbolt II in parallel with the digital processing system of BAE's Type 996 proprietary radar system.
