Colorado Engineering, Inc. (CEI) proposes to leverage its expertise in development of compact high speed signal processors for radar applications including U.A.V. to develop similar technologies for torpedo defense applications. A total systems approach will be emphasized that will incorporate state of the art APU, GPU, and FPGA components to develop a common signal processing platform that will meet the needs of a variety of sensor platforms. CEI is familiar with highly dense packaging technologies including extremely dense multilayer PCB s, MCM s and ASIC s. The goal will be to leverage technologies whose advancement is being driven by commercial applications such as telecommunications, video gaming and computing. CEI will apply these technologies to meet the Navy s unique requirements for torpedo defense applications. The TPOC has expressed that these technologies should be implementable within the next few years. CEI is engaged with many commercial technology suppliers and is familiar with their roadmaps. CEI will also engage with Subject Matter Experts (SME s) in torpedo defense applications to tailor the signal processing solution to meet the Navy s needs in this problem space.
