SACLANTCEN real-time signal processing system
To meet its increasing requirements in real-time signal processing, SACLANTCEN has developed a general purpose. signal processing system called WARP to be uS.ed with a fairly wide range of underwater acoustic research projects. To achieve a high throughput and an easy programming, WARP is organized in several subsystems corresponding to the successive signal processing tasks to be performed, each subsystem being relatively independent from the others. Great emphasis has been given to the software and the system interfaces with the user and to the on-line testing and debugging facilities. One of the aims is in fact to make the control and programming as easy as possible, through the use of special purpose languages and interactive methods, thus providing the flexibility and reliability required by the research projects. Because of the wide range of requirements WARP is configurable into larger and smaller systems, all using the same hardware elements, operating system and high-level language.
