The KASSPER project is a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program which has the goal of improving the performance of Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) radar systems by incorporating external sources of knowledge into the signal processing chain. The KASSPER Real-Time Signal Processing Architecture is a radar system scheduling and signal processing framework that is being developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory (MIT LL). This paper discusses the design of the architecture, knowledge handling issues, resource scheduling issues, the current state of the prototype implementation of the framework, and the current state of the project?s real-time processor testbed.


Mr. Glenn E Schrader - MIT Lincoln Lab

Glenn Schrader received his BS degree in 1977 from the Ohio Institute of Technology. Since then he has worked for a number of large and small companies including Boeing, Kollsman Instruments, General Electric, Digital Equipment, and Medrad. His experience includes team management, software development, and hardware development across all phases of the project life cycle. A notable acheivement is that he received a Boeing employee of the year award for Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse circuit failure analysis that was performed as part of the B52 Nuclear Hardening program. Among Glenn's current interests are real-time systems, parallel multi-processors, high performance clusters, and software engineering. Glenn has been at the MIT Lincoln Lab for 6 years and is currently a staff member in the Embedded Digital Systems group.
