CPU TECH's Modernized AN/APG-68 RADAR Programmable Signal Processor Development Program Achieves Safety of Flight Certification.PLEASANTON, Calif. -- CPU CPU
in full central processing unit
Principal component of a digital computer, composed of a control unit, an instruction-decoding unit, and an arithmetic-logic unit. Technology, Inc.(R) (CPU TECH), an innovator in high performance, System-on-Chip (SOC) based, system design solutions, announced today that it has received formal Safety of Flight Certification from the U.S. Air Force and has entered formal flight testing for its Modernized F-16 AN/APG-68 Programmable Signal Radar Processor (MPSP MPSP Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai (Seberang Perai Municipal Council)

Subsequent to the successful Design Tryout Flight Test (DTO DTO Data Transfer Object

The AN/APG-68 RADAR Processor upgrade has also successfully completed all MIL-STD MIL-STD Military Standard environmental qualification testing required to enter into the formal flight test process including: temperature, altitude and cooling air tests, mechanical shock test, random vibration In mechanical engineering, random vibration is motion which is non-deterministic, meaning that future behavior cannot be precisely predicted. The randomness is a characteristic of the excitation or input, not the mode shapes or natural frequencies. and gunfire vibration tests, salt spray, explosion proofing, humidity storage, and fluids compatibility testing. The unit has also undergone and successfully passed all required electro-magnetic compatibility testing required under MIL-STD 461 and MIL-STD 704 specifications.
"Over the last decade, CPU TECH has created the SystemLab(TM) development environment. The Electronic System Level Design Automation tools suite was created specifically for developing such architectures and for producing highly complex systems. Our tools, in conjunction with internally developed multi-processor technology and a superior SOC design methodology, have allowed us to deliver an F-16 RADAR processing system which is completely backward compatible with the existing AN/APG-68," said Edward King, Chairman & CEO (1) (Chief Executive Officer) The highest individual in command of an organization. Typically the president of the company, the CEO reports to the Chairman of the Board. of CPU Tech. "Our modernization and integration efforts eliminated nearly 90 percent of the original system components, offering much higher reliability while providing the additional performance and security needed for future feature enhancement. Once in production, we project that the new version could save the Air Force more than one hundred million dollars in future operation and maintenance costs."
