Stratix II FPGA-Based SR-5124 Multi-Channel Signals Acquisition System Selected for Use by U.S. Navy and German Ministry of DefenseSan Jose, Calif. -- March 24, 2008
-- Altera Corporation today announced its Stratix® II FPGAs have been selected by EONIC B.V. for use in its SR‑5124 converged multi-channel signals acquisition system. Used as a signal receiver in electronic warfare systems, the SR-5124 leverages the high-performance architecture of the Stratix II FPGA to provide advanced digital signal processing capabilities while using minimal power. EONIC recently announced the U.S. Navy and the German Ministry of Defense have both selected the SR-5124 for use in their sophisticated next-generation electronic warfare systems.
The SR-5124 is a full-featured SIGINT (signals intelligence) recorder, which stores both ELINT (electronic intelligence) and COMINT (communications intelligence) signals. Stratix II FPGAs are a proven solution in electronic warfare systems, offering reliability, flexibility, digital signal processing and low latency. Using Altera’s high-performance FPGAs, the SR-5124 is able to detect, monitor, record and analyze a combination of video, radio, satellite communication and radar signals simultaneously and synchronously.
“The SR-5124 resolves a huge logistical problem for intelligence organizations that traditionally were required to switch between radar signals and communications signals,” said Hans Vanderhoek, CEO of EONIC. “By working closely with Altera and leveraging the signal processing capabilities within their Stratix II FPGAs, customers can monitor and record any combination of signals, and integrate their proprietary data analysis algorithms into the signal acquisition and processing flow.”
“EONIC’s SR-5124 is a compelling solution for intelligence organizations looking to transform their SIGINT systems to support the challenges associated with 21st century warfare,” said Amr El-Ashmawi, senior business unit manager, military and aerospace business unit at Altera Corporation. “Altera has a long tradition of delivering solutions targeting electronic warfare platforms, and we are pleased to be able to support EONIC’s latest system.”
