SKYbolt Enables Real Time
SKY Computers, a subsidiary of Ana- logic Corp., said that U.K.-based BAE
Systems has utilized SKY's comprehen- sive SKYbolt II multicomputer for the development of a new radar signal pro- cessing 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 com- ponents 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 sur- veillance 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.
