CHREC F5: Justin

Task A

Metrics Tool (Justin and Quinn)



Port existing application to a Webapp format for portability, ease of access, and
expandability
Expand application to include remaining device metrics and parameters
Benchmarking (Justin, Seth, and Steven)

RU
Gather more academic and professional literature to allow a narrower focus
 Benchmark using expert tools (ie GPU/FPC comparison)
 Refine methodology and definitions of α for clarity
New Platforms
 Finish GPU benchmarking
 Add ARM to benchmark suite and get basic benchmarking started

Task B: Mission-Critical Processing

Processing challenges in restricted environments




Complex optimization problem for given mission






Small satellites, UAVs, smart munitions, AUVs
Radiation effects; limited size, weight, & power (SWaP)
Initial focus upon military/aerospace missions
Goals (throughput, response time, dependability)
Applications (sensor processing, autonomy, et al.)
Constraints (power, size, mass, cooling, wiring)
Architecture (fixed, reconfigurable, hybrid; device & subsystem)
Reliability (RHBP, RHBD, NMR, SIFT, ABFT, et al.)
Pursuit of novel optimization theory, data, tools

Given mission goals, apps, & constraints, what is optimal existing or
notional architecture (device, subsystem) to address?
UAV = unmanned aerial vehicle
AUV = autonomous underwater vehicle 9
RHBP/D = RadHard by process/design
NMR = N-modular redundancy
SIFT = software-implemented FT
ABFT = algorithm-based FT
