Signal Processing Applications

Article

While we tend to think of AdvancedTCA as a platform intended specifically for telecom Central Office applications, John Walrod from Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) gives us a fascinating glimpse in this month’s issue of a sophisticated sensor array system built by SAIC and deployed by the Navy in the Northern Pacific Ocean in 2005 – yes, in the ocean, not on it. This system is based on AdvancedTCA, which John argues is “arguably the best network-centric electronics platform ever invented.” An interesting aspect of this system is that it is not just a bunch of digital signal processing, but also includes sensitive low-level analog electronics for sensor signal processing. This article is a great read, and John brings a great sense of humor to the piece along with the technical details. He predicts a rosy future for AdvancedTCA in military networks, and he is very well qualified to make that assessment.
