CHALLENGE Modernize an actively deployed aircraft by implementing a powerful electro- optical/infrared (EO/IR) airborne processing solution capable of ingesting sensor data and processing algorithms in real-time while also meeting an aggressive project schedule, minimizing downtime and ensuring the aircraft passes qualification testing quickly. SOLUTION Mercury architects engaged with the customer early and collaboratively designed a sensor processing solution using the latest commercial technology that increases performance, adds new capabilities and increases functionality. A new chassis, backplane and interface module leveraged optimally mapped resources (Intel® Xeon® Scalable CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs) to maintain the existing envelope and interfaces of the aircraft. By adopting proven design techniques, the system passed rigorous testing in a single round. RESULT Critical decision-making is now enabled by more efficient sensor data ingest and algorithm execution that delivers time-sensitive intelligence instantaneously and allows ISR and special operations to evolve to meet mission requirements. Flight time disruption was minimized by preserving the aircraft's footprint and mapped interfaces, while rapid qualification and testing allowed the aircraft to be upgraded and re-deployed with expanded operational capabilities.
