Abstract : This technical report presents the results of research conducted to examine the problems and issues of implementing adaptive network software in a hardware system. In prior work, SYSTRAN conducted studies of adaptive networks as computer simulations. In this project those software algorithms were further developed and hosted on a customized multiprocessor system. The resulting prototype hardware was demonstrated to achieve all the capabilities of the software simulations. This report discusses the research approach, design and results, and future expectations. The benefit of this research is to move adaptive network technology closer to Air Force applications. Keywords: Artificial Neurons; Pattern Recognition; Machine Learning; Self-Organizing System; Artificial Intelligence.
