Reliable High Performance Processing System (RHPPS), Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Reliable High Performance Processing System (RHPPS), Phase I
NASA's exploration, science, and space operations systems are critically dependent on the hardware technologies used in their implementation. Specifically, the performance and deployment of autonomous and computationally-intensive capabilities for space based observatories, orbiters, autonomous landing and hazard avoidance, autonomous rendezvous and capture, robotic, relative navigation, command, control and communications systems are directly dependent on the availability of radiation-tolerant, high-performance, reconfigurable and adaptable, energy-efficient processor technology. Coherent Logix, Incorporated proposes to develop a radiation tolerant HyperX technology based processor to address these critical needs. This program will leverage more than $18M investment by the Department of Defense to bring this technology to the Warfighter. The Phase 1 program will outline radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and/or radiation hardened by process (RHBP) approach. This will be followed in Phase 2 and Phase 3 by the design, development, and productization to a TRL 8/9 of a Radiation Tolerant HyperX Processor. More »
