has military and
aerospace platforms
covered with commercial
off-the-shelf (COTS)
computing systems
specifically tailored to
the unique needs of
that arena.
GE understands the need for subsystem components that leverage technology
advances in the marketplace as well as the economies of scale that come along
with the use of commercial products. We also understand the need for off-the-shelf
availability and ease of development for the fastest possible platform time-to-market.
COTS technology also provides a major advantage by reducing overall program
risk. GE designs and qualifies its products toward the platform specifications using
only proven technologies. Whether for a ground-up design project or technology
insertion, our products are designed to meet all technical requirements without the
program risks that might otherwise be encountered.
GE can fully appreciate the harsh environments in which many of our products are
called upon to perform. And we know how valuable every square inch, every ounce
and every watt are in most every military and aerospace platform. For that reason,
we design ruggedized products that provide the appropriate level of technology

GE Intelligent Platforms has been a leading provider of
embedded computing technologies for unmanned aerial
vehicles (UAVs) since development of this paradigm-shifting
new form of military aircraft. UAVs are now revolutionizing
how aerial intelligence is gathered and in some cases even
how the enemy is engaged. The US Army, Air Force and Navy
have all made substantial commitments to even greater
use of UAV technology in the future as a way to limit risks to
warfighters, conduct missions under conditions not possible by
manned flight platforms, and even lower capital and operating
costs for battlefield deployments.
The technology requirements of unmanned platforms
present unique challenges to contractors. Video capture
and streaming capabilities are of major importance both
to control the aircraft and obtain meaningful observation
of potential objects of interest on the ground. The capture,
processing and transmission of enormous volumes of data
must be accomplished seamlessly and in real-time with
components that incorporate leading-edge size, weight and
power advantages. Flight management and control systems
(and sometimes weapons management systems) also must
meet the unique challenge of operating a battlefield asset from
considerable distances.
Many unique GE products have helped launch the UAV
paradigm, and continue to move it forward to maturity. Our
video capture and processing technology has been deployed in
UAVs such as the US Navy Fire Scout as well as a DARPA-funded
demonstration of in-flight refueling of a UAV. Video tracking
systems from GE such as our ADEPT5000 rugged video tracker
have successfully overcome the challenges of data clutter
from non-targets, multiple target tracking, and obscuration
and decoy attempts to avoid detection. Acquiring the data
necessary to perform these surveillance activities is the role of
a myriad of sensor technologies, and onboard analog-to-digital
data converters must be able to manage that data with nearzero latency.
The latest and greatest technology is of little use if subsystems
fail to integrate in an efficient manner. GE Intelligent Platforms’
rigorous subsystem integration and testing programs free
contractors and system integrators from the time- and capitalintensive certification of subsystems, and thus help to
quickly move UAV concepts out of the design studio and onto
the battlefield.

sea systems
GE Intelligent Platforms’ broad range of rugged systems
products give prime contractors just the right level of
ruggedization necessary for the environmental conditions
involved with sea-going operations. Whether in the protective
environment of a control room, the sea-sprayed deck or the
high altitudes of an unmanned aerial vehicle, GE can provide a
system that will provide the needed combination of longevity
and upgradability that sea-going applications demand.
Given that sea systems often must remain in place for decades,
we strive to develop products that can survive numerous
technology upgrades with a minimum of physical or electrical
reconfiguration and recertification. As much as possible, GE
designs in the ability to swap out COTS processors or memory
chips without changing the board’s physical dimensions or
electrical characteristics.
GE has been selected by contractors to provide systems
hardware and software for numerous applications throughout
the spectrum of sea operations:
››ADCAP (Raytheon)
››SQQ-89 (Lockheed Martin)
››ALFS/LAMPS (Raytheon)
››LFAS (DRA)
››NSSN-SIM/STIM (DSR)
››P3 upgrade (Boeing)

systems
Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) computing systems afford end users access to the most
advanced technology at mass-market prices. Platform time-to-market is dramatically
reduced along with technical risk. Because the development has already been performed
up-front for these standard systems, the non-recurring engineering expense has been
greatly reduced, if not eliminated. Emplacing COTS systems in the harsh environments
typically encountered in military and aerospace applications will usually require specialized packaging to achieve certification for the lifecycle demanded by the end user.
GE Intelligent Platforms excels at the design of COTS systems
with levels of ruggedization ranging from benign to being capable
of withstanding harsh military and aerospace conditions such
as thermal extremes, vibration, shock, sand and dust, salt fog,
humidity, acceleration, electromagnetic interference, and nuclear/
electromagnetic pulse, as well as human intrusion and compromise. We provide a full range of COTS system packaging services,
from creation of specifications to rigorous qualification testing.
GE has developed five levels of circuit board ruggedization, each
providing the optimal balance of cost, performance and reliability.
Our engineers first recommend a COTS board based on the performance requirements of the specification, then select the chassis and racks based on the type of cooling (forced air, convection, or
conduction) required, as well as estimates of power dissipation, board/slot count, and user environment. After engineering analysis and simulation assures performance capabilities, prototype and
qualification testing is conducted to certify that the system will indeed function in the intended
environment. All rugged COTS equipment is tested to environmental test specifications that have
the widest applicability. MIL-STD-810 has emerged as an important environmental test standard
for rugged COTS systems because of its broad applicability to rotary/fixed-wing aircraft as well as
ground/amphibious vehicles, but some unique rugged systems specifications require specialized
design, analysis and testing to certify the required level of performance in a given environment.
GE has developed a comprehensive process for the development of rugged systems. Our ISO 9000/AS9100 certified design
and testing process is exhaustive, but our extensive design data
and experience base greatly reduces development time while
assuring low program risk for the contractor.
COTS products making up a rugged system can include single
board computers, analog and digital I/O boards, Ethernet
switches, solid state drives, power supplies, and chassis. Boards,
especially I/O boards, can be modified to meet program specifications, and customer-designed or third-party products can
also be included in the system specification. Raised lids and
media adapters can be included in the chassis design to accommodate the routing of fiber optics and cabling, as can external
doghouses for external removable memory.

COTS Rugged Systems
Do more without more.
That was the message in a June 2010 directive from the U.S.
Under Secretary of Defense to military procurement specialists
regarding ways to deliver better value to both the taxpayer and
warfighter. A September 2010 Guidance document on means of
actually increasing value to stakeholders in an age of shrinking
defense budgets took aim at the $400 billion earmarked for
contracts for goods and services out of the $700 billion total
defense budget.
One key method of effecting cost savings that Under Secretary
Ashton B. Carter directed procurement officials to undertake
is a shift from Cost Plus contracts to Fixed Cost contracts. In
the former, contractors had the ability to pass unanticipated
costs along to the Department, while the Fixed Price paradigm holds the contractor to a price determined before the
signing of the contract.
The new COTS Rugged System (CRS) line from GE Intelligent
Platforms can help contractors achieve platform goals while
minimizing the risks inherent with the Fixed Price mode of
operation. These SWaP-optimized packaged and pre-validated
control computer systems provide rugged computing platforms
with a wide range of I/O flexibility for a wide variety of military
and aerospace applications. Any CRS computer is deployable as
soon as the field application is ready or used as starting point
for multiple application-specific configurations. Furthermore,
the CRS concept greatly reduces non-recurring engineering
fees and system development risks, while providing an initial
Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 6.
A major source of contractor risk, integration of off-the-shelf
boards, is already completed, thus shortening the contractor’s
time to project completion. These modular systems are fully
tested and qualified for rugged systems deployment by a
company renowned for rugged systems deployments in platforms
such as UAVs, missiles, ground vehicles and manned aircraft.
Through computing solutions such as the GE Intelligent Platforms
CRS product line, contractors themselves can achieve more
without more risk or development cost.

single board computers
GE Intelligent Platforms specializes in the design and manufacture
of single board computers (SBCs) tailored to meet the computing and
ruggedization needs of the customer. With a wide range of form factors,
processor speeds, memory configurations, I/O options and five levels
of ruggedization, our line of COTS-based SBCs provide tremendous
computing flexibility with considerably lowered program risk.
We recently announced a new line of SBC products based on the 2nd generation
Intel® Core i7™ processors. These new dual- or quad-core processors effectively
double the computing capabilities of the previous generation of Core i7 processors, along with the addition of Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) technology.
AVX doubles the processor’s vector engine from 128 to 256 bits for a tremendous
improvement in floating point processing. Radar, sonar, intelligence, surveillance
and reconnaissance, and signal processing will be some of the military and aerospace applications to benefit most from the addition of AVX to these Intel flagship
processors. Current GE products include the VPXcel3 SBC324 and VPXcel6 SBC624
in 3U and 6U VPX form factors, respectively, the XCR14 rugged 6U CPCI SBC, and the
XVR14 rugged 6U VME SBC. All of these SBCs bear dual- or quad-core 2nd generation Core i7 processors running at up to 2.5 GHz.
In parallel, we also announced a new line of SBC products based on Freescale™
Semiconductor’s QorIQ 45nm communications and computing platforms designed
for high performance in a low-power envelope. Our PPC9B and IMP3A SBCs use
the dual-core P2020 processor running at 1.2 GHz and are specifically targeted
at SWaP-constrained applications. Our PPC10A, SBC312 and SBC612 products are
based on the QorIQ P4080 processor which has eight Power Architecture™ e500mc
cores running at 1.5 GHz and are targeted at high-performance applications where
benefits can be achieved by software parallelism across the available cores. The
eight-core QorIQ offer the ability to compress many existing multi-board applications into one or two multi-core SBCs to achieve considerable SWaP advantages.

computer on modules
Computer on Modules (COM) address the need for standardized small form factor computing platforms.
COMs are the perfect solution for long-term applications where technology and performance upgrades are a
must. COMs are without connectors for USB, LAN, VGA, etc. and must be attached to an I/O board to fullfil an
application's I/O requirements. Upgrades are easily managed through an exchange of the existing Computer
Module to one based on the latest technology, in effect extending the lifecycle of the application.

processor pmc
Processor PMCs (PrPMC) maximize design flexibility with a modular approach to
adding processing power to a host board. The PMC Card functions as a complete
processor subsystem and can be used to control a carrier card, effectively
making it into a Single Board Computer or blade. The processor module can be
added to any system with an open PMC slot.

The AdvancedTCA® modular design concept
serves as the basis for our Processor AdvancedMC
products. Both the Telum ASLP11 and Telum ASLE11
bring a full set of processor capabilities to a carrier
board, and can be incorporated into any host card
or MicroTCA™ system with the appropriate mechan-
20
ical and electrical connections. Both processors
employ the Intel® Core 2 Duo processor running at
1.5 GHz and 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM with ECC and Intel
3100 chipset. The Processor AdvancedMCs also
include two Gigabit Ethernets, eight PCI Express and
two SATA interconnects.

network connectivity
OpenVPX
This new standard allows VPX interoperability to be brought
up to multi-vendor, multi-module integrated systems. The end
result is module-to-module, module-to-backplane, and development chassis integration. OpenVPX specifies a set of system
architectures using existing VPX Ruggedized Enhanced Design
Implementation (REDI) standards and drafts with a minimum
of changes. It provides definitions for multiple planes for utility,
management, control, data and expansion, as well as a
variety of sizes for serial communication pipes.
OpenVPX also defines several types of profiles for structure
and hierarchy, including slot profile, backplane profile, module
profile, and development chassis profile. The backplane
profiles are further defined for centralized switching, distributed
switching, and hybrid backplane topologies. System-level
specifications defining interoperability points within the
architecture include backplane topologies and development
chassis, module-level pin out and protocol definitions, chassis
and backplane definitions for power and system signals, and
interoperability compliance recommendations.
single board
computers
Military strategy increasingly demands more efficient use of
computer networks to obtain the highest level of situational
awareness in the field. Achieving this growing requirement
will require greater use of distributed, network-centric multiprocessor computing technologies to gather and analyze data,
then distribute information garnered from disparate sensor
systems in the field. The American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) in 2007 ratified the VITA 46 standard, also known at VPX,
to facilitate interoperability at the board level, but the need
for similar interoperability at the system level quickly became
apparent. GE Intelligent Platforms participated in the development
of a VPX-based system specification that in 2010 was ratified
as VITA 65, or OpenVPX.
Our GRA111 graphics board uses the NVIDIA GT 240 chipset
in a 3U form factor for radar systems and other mil/aero
applications. The GRA111 provides RS170, NTSC and PAL, DVI,
and VGA I/O for configuration flexibility, and can be air- or
conduction-cooled.
atca
With limited real estate for mezzanines on nextgeneration ATCA processor blades, adding I/O with
AdvancedMCs may not be an option. Intelligent
Advanced Rear Transition Modules (ARTMs) offer
a powerful, flexible solution. Using the Zone 3
connector through the rear of the ATCA blade,
system designers can tailor the I/O capabilities of
their processor blades to their application. Intelligent ARTMs do more than simply extend a port;
they add functionality to the processor blade. GE
can customize the functionality and the pinouts for
specific applications.

GE Intelligent Platforms’ line of COTS multiprocessor hardware solutions includes single board computers (SBCs) and
multiprocessors based on Intel, NVIDIA and PowerPC processors, as well as fabric switch cords, PMC/XMC carriers and
FPGA processing engines. We also offer our market-leading
AXIS suite of multiprocessor software that includes an integrated development environment and high-performance
math and function libraries that reduce development time
and maximize performance for even the most demanding
signal and data processing applications. Our multiprocessor
hardware and software products have been incorporated
into numerous deployed platforms that include underwater
and naval surface sonar, land-based radar, and airborne
sensor, image and radar processing.
The DSP280 is a rugged dual socket multiprocessor based on the 2nd
Generation Intel Quad Core i7 that was designed to meet the rigorous
real-time demands of applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and
reconnaissance (ISR), radar, sonar, image and sensor processing across
a wide range of platforms including manned and unmanned airborne,
ground and naval vehicles.
The IPN250 is the world's first 6U OpenVPX GPGPU COTS board for rugged
military and aerospace applications. Customers can deploy their CUDA,
OpenCL, OpenGL and video and image processing applications developed
on Intel- and NVIDIA®-enabled PCs directly onto GE's new rugged GPGPU
platforms. The IPN250 delivers unprecedented levels of computing performance for SWaP-constrained platforms at lower cost, thus creating new
application opportunities that were previously unthinkable. The IPN250
enables system integrators to deploy a single COTS module where previously multiple disparate modules would have been required - for example,
undertaking front-end processing of sensor-acquired data, digital signal
processing, backend processing and graphics/video processing, and
delivering high-resolution mission-critical data more rapidly than has
previously been possible.
Our lineup also includes the NPN240, which is the world's first
rugged, NVIDIA CUDA-enabled dual GPGPU multiprocessor for military and aerospace applications. The NPN240 features two NVIDIA
CUDA-capable GT240 96-core GPUs that enable it to deliver up to 750
GFLOPS peak per card slot. Multiple NPN240s can be linked to single
or multiple hosts to create multi-node CUDA GPU clusters capable
of thousands of GFLOPs. Providing a highly computationally-dense
platform, the NPN240 is ideal for demanding SWaP-constrained applications. Many military/aerospace companies and organizations are
finding CUDA technology exciting, as it has been demonstrated to be
capable of delivering significant improvements. Indeed, one company
experienced a 15x increase in throughput in a radar application.

AXIS
Most application engineers want to focus on application functionality rather than underlying hardware complexities.
Our AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software
development tools take away a large portion of that software development burden so that engineers can instead get
their new systems completed that much more quickly. The
AXIS family consists of three integrated toolsets: AXIS™Flow,
AXIS™View and AXIS™Lib.
The AXISFlow interprocessor communications software module
facilitates data transport between tasks, processors, boards
and systems using high-throughput, low-latency, reconfigurable communications channels. Integration of processing
elements is seamlessly scalable regardless of project size. In
addition, AXISFlow is independent of the type of processor,
RTOS, or fabric, so future technology changes will be transparent to the communications software. AXISFlow can be
operated in stand-alone mode or as an integrated element
within the AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software
environment.
AXISView provides a suite of graphical software tools for the
development of multiprocessor applications. Through tools
such as ConsoleView, HardwareView, ApplicationView, RuntimeView, EventView, HealthView and AXISRun, this productivity
suite simplifies the process of implementation and analysis of
real-time multicore and multiprocessor applications.
The AXISLib optimized DSP and math libraries provide a
valuable set of building blocks for the quick and efficient
development of applications. Our existing AXISLib-PPC performance-optimized DSPlibrary for Altivec, and AXISLib-CL DSP
library for generic architectures have been joined by two new
optimized DSP and vector math libraries. These new libraries,
AXISLib-x86 and AXISLIB-GPU, facilitate the development of
GE’s single board computer (SBC) and multiprocessor applications for Intel- and General Purpose computation on Graphics
Processing Units (GPGPU)-based architectures.
The AXISLib-x86 DSP and math libraries facilitate the development of military and aerospace applications in sensor and
signal processing, radar, sonar, image processing, and signal
intelligence for deployed air-, land- and sea-based deployment.
Our AXISLib libraries can be deployed on the full range of GE
SBCs and multiprocessors based on Freescale’s Power architecture and Intel multicore processors.

many cores on a single device
GPGPU
GPGPU devices do not have the large need for transistors and
die space of their GPP counterparts. Thus, GPGPUs have the
ability to provide a large number of processing cores on a
single device at a minimum of size, weight and power (SWaP).
GE Intelligent Platforms provides GPGPU devices designed to
withstand the harsh environments encountered in military and
aerospace situations while delivering greatly improved systems
performance. For instance, GPGPU ruggedized devices in radar
systems can deliver greater range, number of targets, and
speed while standing up to extreme temperatures, dust, shock
and vibration.
Developing new military and aerospace GPGPU products with
minimal SWaP is made easier as a result of a unique partnership
In addition to mainstream libraries, GPGPU application
development is enhanced by GE’s AXIS advanced integrated
multiprocessor software. The AXISLib-GPU software provides
the industry-standard Vector, Signal and Image Processing
Library (VSIPL) for NVIDIA-based GPU platforms. DSP application
developers are able to quickly develop applications through the
VSIPL API model without the need to learn GPU programming.
AXISLib-GPU supports the development of high-performance
DSP and multiprocessing applications on GE’s platforms
such as the IPN250, NPN250 and GRA111 graphics boards.
These platforms have been deployed for radar, sonar, image
processing, signals intelligence and intelligence, surveillance
and reconnaissance (ISR) applications.
m u lt i p r o c e s s i n g
General Purpose computation on Graphics Processing
Units (GPGPUs) were developed as graphics chips for pixel
processing, but subsequent development environments such
as Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) and OpenCL
have leveraged the cores’ Single Precision (SP) floating-point
data processing capabilities for radar processing and other
military and aerospace applications.
between GE and NVIDIA, whose graphics processing units are
based on the CUDA architecture.
GE Intelligent Platforms’ AXIS multiprocessing software suite
also facilitates the development of complex applications
over multiple clusters of GPU platforms. AXISFlow provides a
communications API for multi-threaded, multi-core and multiprocessor communications. Our AXISView provides a set of
GUI tools for system visualization, application instrumentation,
debugging and monitoring, allowing the developer to speed the
process of timing the applications for the best real-time performance on the chosen system.

Our 3U and 6U VPX starter kits are available for quick and easy start up of CUDA-based systems, either for
evaluation and benchmarking or to develop a specific application. They provide system integrators with a
complete applications development platform supporting multiple GPGPU configurations.
Product Description
3U VPX Starter Cage
The SCVPX3U is a five-slot 3U VPX starter enclosure addressing the requirements of VPX development. By using this as a development system, the integrator can significantly
reduce time-to-market by developing the application on the actual system hardware while the final “rugged” system is being manufactured in parallel.

6U OpenVPX
Development Chassis
m u lt i p r o c e s s i n g
The 6U OpenVPX Development Chassis is a rack-mountable lab chassis designed to support fast prototyping of multi-board 6U OpenVPX systems. The starter chassis provides
a four-slot uncommitted backplane, ATX power supply, four hard-disk drives and variable speed fans. Each pay load slot is routed to a dedicated fabric interface routing the P1
data, and P2 expansion planes to rear transition modules. In addition, each pay load slot provides a direct interface to the P3 to P6 user I/O of the processor card via its own rear
transition module. This innovative concept enables a variety of multi-board/multi-node processor configurations during system design and applications development. Multiple
architectures can be defined and demonstrated with GE's deployable COTS boards to identify optimal configurations even before decisions are made about the SWaP profile of
the final platform. The development chassis can accomodate a range of GE's COTS processor and I/O modules, including our latest OpenVPX Intel, NVIDIA and high speed fabric
switch cards.
fabric switches
GE Intelligent Platforms processor and I/O boards benefit from a range of widely used network interface
controllers (NICs) and switch fabrics to provide best-in-class high performance embedded computing (HPEC)
capabilities. Serial switched fabrics provide the interprocess communication (IPC) backbone for the latest
COTS modules in various form factors including the VITA41 (VXS) and VITA65 (OpenVPX) standards. High
performance computing (HPC) architectures depend on fabrics such as PCIe, 10Gigabit Ethernet, Infiniband
and Serial RapidIO (sRIO) and Starfabric supporting system scaling and I/O to address the demands of todays’
24/7, always-on, information age and GE-IP supports these architectures with a family of rugged, deployable
switch fabric modules (SFMs) and software such as our AXIS Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software
under a variety of operating systems.

Video Compression
As real-time video becomes an increasingly important decision-making tool for military and security platforms such as
unmanned vehicles and border security, so too does the need
to be able to transmit and record high-definition video feeds at
increased frame rates. With an increase of up to 12 times the
amount of data (compared to standard definition video feeds)
now required to squeeze through the same narrow bandwidth
network, video compression has become a necessary tool to
accomplish this data-gathering mission.
GE Intelligent Platforms offers video compression boards that
provide a range of scalability, latency, and size, weight and power
(SWaP) specifications. The most widely used video compression
codec, H.264, provides the most effective blend of high-quality
video while achieving better than 95% compression rates. It was
around this codec that we based our latest XMC module, the
ICS-8580. This module takes video compression to a new level
with low-bandwidth, low-latency, and high-quality video from
high-definition sources. Despite its low power requirement, the
easy-to-use ICS-8580 is the most powerful embedded video
compression/decompression engine on the market, boasting
flexible video input and output support, data connectivity and
bandwidth management capability.
This small-yet-rugged module is deployable in the harsh environments encountered by military and aerospace platforms
such as unmanned aerial vehicles. The module can capture
from a variety of video inputs, merge audio and other external
data, and then send compressed streams across a network for
processing or storage. The ICS-8580 can also be configured as
a decompression engine and display the uncompressed video
on local displays. The ICS-8580 can support two high-definition
video streams or four standard-definition streams. Latencies of
less than 75ms can be reliably achieved, with 50ms achievable
in some instances.
The ICS-8580 supports many system connectivity options,
including a stand-alone mode that removes the need for a
single board computer. As a result, the surveillance platform
is less complex and saves valuable SWaP while potentially
increasing the video capabilities needed to carry out its
mission. To quickly adapt to changing system requirements,
this flexible video compression board can implement different
compression codecs (such as JPEG2000) by simply updating the
software configuration.

applied image processing
Whether for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), air-toground, ground-to-air, ground-to-ground, naval tracking,
remote control gun platforms, or range instrumentation
applications, GE Intelligent Platforms is at the forefront
of applied image processing technologies. We are
particularly renowned for our rugged, real-time image
processing subsystems and commercial off-the-shelf
(COTS) video tracking and image processing systems for
the military and aerospace arena.
We have more than two decades of experience developing individual
boards as well as fully integrated systems for real-time video image
processing. Our systems are able to extract the maximum amount
of useful information from a raw video data feed and deliver it to
users in a manageable form for the highest level of electro optical
system performance.
Almost all of our applied image processing products use COTS
products to provide the latest commercial technologies that are
able to meet interface and performance requirements without major
modifications. The end result is optimal performance from a product
that maximizes size, weight and power (SWaP) considerations.
Our array of ADEPT image processing modules has been optimized
for data extraction in tasks such as image enhancement, target
detection/acquisition, target tracking and system support functions
across the full range of military electro optical system applications.
Visualization of video streams is often plagued by camera platform
vibrations than make it difficult if not impossible for operators to
glean meaningful information from the scene that is presented to
them. GE’s real-time image stabilization system is able to electronically remove global motion from a video stream without the
SWaP losses inflicted by mechanical inertial stabilization methods.
Operators also benefit from the image fusion algorithm embedded
into our applied image processing systems. This tool allows multiple
feeds from sensitive to color visible, intensified visible, near-infrared,
thermal infrared and tera hertz imagers and fuse the images into a
single, meaningful image from which the operator can most effectively assess the scene. In addition, our warp engine affords rotation,
scaling, and translation for each video source to compensate for
image distortion and misalignment between imagers.
video tracking and image processing
Our automatic video trackers and image processors are at the heart of a wide range of commercial, military and paramilitary systems
where they provide the highest performance solutions in the smallest, fully environmentally proven hardware packages. A range of proven
high-performance algorithms, which can be tailored for the application, allow real-time detection and tracking of targets within the video
image which meet user-determined selection criteria. Other functionalities include real-time video fusion and video stabilization. GE's video
tracking modules offer a wide range of video and data interfaces in order to offer total flexibility for integration with customer systems
and are available in a range of physical formats allowing customers to add auto-tracking and image processing to standard subsystem
configurations with the minimum of integration activity.

360° Situational Awareness
Our subsystems can provide real-time 360° situational awareness through high-resolution panoramic video feeds from as
many as 16 cameras. These subsystems provide an intuitive,
operator-friendly interface that incorporates a virtual camera
that can be panned or zoomed with either joystick or touchscreen interfaces. The virtual camera concept eliminates the
critical time that would be lost by moving a real camera into
position. The subsystem also operates with a wide array of
physical sensor positions and orientations.
The video perspective afforded by the camera array affords
a very high typical horizontal resolution of about 7,000 pixels.
This provides much greater resolving power than fish-eye lens
systems, and also provides a more realistic image of the area
under surveillance by preserving the intuitive spatial relationships of objects. Images are aligned without distortion, leaving
straight lines straight when the operator views the image on
the display.
The use of multiple cameras provides real-time monitoring
of an area much larger than any single sensor system can
provide. GE’s ADEPT5000 Multi-Target Video Tracker can provide
automatic moving target detection and metadata tagging
in the video stream anywhere within the 360° horizon. The
subsystems can interface with any type of video-style
sensor, including thermal imagers, and
can be used with analog video (CCIR/
RS170) as well as digital video interfaces.
The subsystems employ simple calibration and alignment
algorithms. They can be operated with images covering any
available waveband, and can be coupled with a cued or independent high-resolution steerable sensor. Our real-time Image
Fusion technology can meld full-frame, multi-resolution images
streaming from visible and infrared cameras to provide an
enhanced image for operators even under sub-optimal viewing
conditions. This intelligent subsystem affords higher detail and
contrast than one sensor technology alone might provide, thus
giving the operator a higher level of information content. The
image processing subsystem can be divided into two modes.
Data Extraction can provide the detection of events in the field
of view, while Visualization offers the presentation of multiple
video images and information from the Data Extraction process.
Future tracking subsystems may be expected to face even
tighter SWaP constraints in certain platforms, such as UAVs. For
these applications, tracking subsystems may drop certain noncritical functionalities in exchange for dramatically reduced
SWaP specifications in addition to greater cost-effectiveness.
Another possible future development could be toward development of entire 360° situational awareness systems as package
products to further ensure seamless integration between
subsystems.
applied image
processing
Warfighters need to know what is happening all around them
and the military assets they control, and a variety of image
processing systems from GE Intelligent Platforms can enable
just that. Our situational awareness subsystems are found on
virtually every type of military platform, including armored
vehicles, aircraft, remote unmanned platforms, and security
and surveillance installations.
GE Intelligent Platforms 360° situational awareness subsystems are available for deployment in either fixed security
installations where an industrial level of environmental
performance is required or in mobile military vehicle or similar
applications that require full-military, rugged, conductioncooled environmental performance.
GE recognizes that size, weight and
power (SWaP) must be conserved in
many platforms in which situational
awareness systems are deployed.
Therefore, we designed our subsystems
so that a single display device can
manage multiple video input streams
that provide the widest possible
area of coverage.

io and communications
GE Intelligent Platforms has one of the most complete set of I/O products for the military and aerospace industry. We have a wide array of
Ethernet switches as well and LAN cards. Other I/O interfaces offerings
include packet processors, audio, video, storage, IndustryPack®, bus
adapters, PCI Express®, Fibre Channel and StarFabric. In addition, our
PMC card products are supplemented by our AdvancedMC ™ cards for
MicroTCA™ and AdvancedTCA™ systems.
Our new VME-6500 6U VME multifunction I/O board has the
ability to provide analog and digital I/O functionality that
typically required up to four board slots, thus significantly
enhancing performance and functional density. The VME-6500
provides 8 analog and 16 digital inputs and outputs in a single
6U double Euro form factor. Each of the analog input channels is equipped with a 16-bit ADC, while each analog output
channel has a 16-bit DAC. Flexibility of use is facilitated by the
configuration of individual I/O from the VME host.
The VME-6500 can go beyond convention VME I/O board
functionality through configuration to use onboard or
external triggers for analog inputs. Analog outputs can
also be configured to generate arbitrary waveforms.
Digital inputs can be configured to use selectable threshold
voltages, while digital outputs can be configured as either
current source or current sink outputs.
The VME-6500 represents the first in a series of VME
multifunction I/O boards designed specifically to address
the military and aerospace arena’s growing constraints
in size, weight and power. In addition, data acquisition is
becoming an increasingly important requirement in applications such as radar, image capture and processing,
and video tracking. The VME-6500 has been ruggedized
for wide temperature ranges and to withstand shock and
vibration so that it can be part of a data acquisition system
that can be placed as close as possible to the sensors.

We feature several management options, depending on model from Unmanaged or Managed Layer 2 to Fully Managed Layer -2/3+ switches. Unmanaged switches
operate at Layer -2, with no operator interfacing and are designed for easy deployment in simple, well defined applications. Managed switches are available as Layer
-2 only or Layer -2/3+ switches with control and monitoring capabilities via local or remote access. Our managed switches support a wealth of configuration options
and protocol support, including multicast, broadcast, spanning tree, and VLANs. Fully Managed switches include both IPv4 and IPv6 switching and routing.

reflective memory nodes
Reflective Memory networks are Real Time Local Area Networks in which each computer always has an
up-to-date local copy of the shared memory set. These specialty networks are specifically designed to provide
highly deterministic data communications. They deliver the tightly timed performance necessary for a variety
of distributed simulation and industrial control applications. Reflective Memory networks have benefited from
advances in general-purpose data networks, but they remain an entirely independent technology, driven by
different requirements and catering to applications where determinism, implementation simplicity, and a lack
of software overhead are key factors.

reflective memory hubs
Managed Reflective Memory hubs are designed to operate with our Reflective Memory real-time network
products. Managed hubs provide a user interface using a standard HTML-based Web browser. The user
interface presents status data such as loss of signal and synchronization information. Reflective Memory hubs
are also able to automatically bypass ports if they detect a loss of signal or the loss of valid synchronization
patterns, allowing the other nodes in the network to remain operational.

cable interconnect. Our newly refreshed software tools ease
migration from older reflective memory products to newer
ones that are fuller-featured and offer higher performance.
Our latest offering is the PCIE-5565 PIORC low-profile PCIe
reflective memory node card. This high-speed, low-latency,
deterministic interface allows data to be shared between as
many as 256 independent nodes at up to 170 MB/s. Each board
may be configured with 128 or 256 MB of onboard SDRAM. The
local SDRAM provides fast Read access times to stored data,
while writes are stored in local SDRAM and broadcast over a
high-speed fiber optic data path to other nodes.
No I/O overhead is required, as the transfer of data between
nodes is software-transparent. Transmit and receive FIFOs
buffer data during peak data rates, thus optimizing the
host computer and bus performance to maintain high data
throughput. PCIE-5565PIORC is RoHS compliant, and has
improved PIO read performance and firmware that can be
upgraded in the field.

product lifecycle management
Major military and aerospace assets are not commodity
items that can be sent to the scrap heap whenever the next
generation of technology is rolled out.
Rather, the lifecycles of these assets are often expected to
be deployable for several years and even decades. A wellengineered system or subsystem design can go a long way to
helping a platform achieve the required lifecycle, but effective
Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) can help ensure that parts
are available to service routine or emergency maintenance.
Equally important, a PLM program can anticipate technology
advances and allow for upgrades to embedded technology
with a minimum of hardware or software disruption. The end
result is the highest level of repeatable performance coupled
with the lowest possible cost of ownership across the lifecycle
of a given platform.
GE Intelligent Platforms has military and aerospace PLM
expertise that few, if any, other companies can match. PLM
has been a core tenet of GE for decades. GE’s long-established
PLM team maintains close contact with component suppliers
and industry groups such as the Component Obsolescence
Group to constantly monitor technology developments and
component obsolescence issues. At the heart of the program
is a dedication to providing both progressive and defensive
Long Term Support.
Progressive support begins on the design table, with embedded
products being designed for maximum compatibility or
upgradability even before they are qualified for a system. The
list of critical components will include only those elements for
which vendors have committed to a long-term production run.
After a product is launched, defensive PLM provides the
technical support and service to keep the product running,
as well as ensuring that sufficient stores of spare parts are
available to avoid the premature shutdown of a system or
even the entire platform. When technology obsolescence
occurs in the marketplace, GE’s Health Check program will
alert the customer and provide possible solutions such as
a last-time buy of the components, an appropriate replacement component, a redesign of the original product for form,
fit, or function compatibility, technology insertion earlier than
planned or a lifetime purchase of the components. When
components are purchased in bulk, GE also can provide
secure, climate-controlled storage for as long as required
by the customer.
Long-term product lifecycles demand that critical engineering
knowledge is available regardless of personnel changes or
corporate restructures. Similarly, testing, diagnostic and repair
capabilities must be maintained. GE Intelligent Platforms’ PLM
program ensures that such knowledge, protocols and capabilities
are available throughout the lifecycle of the platform.
